Two cards from one background.

Recently I saw Yana Samkula do a video where she took one large sheet of card stock and stamped flowers as a background and then trimmed it into four panels.  I CASE'd Yana's background  but stamped it onto an A5 (half a large sheet) and cut it into two.  I used Altenew stamps and inks and made two cards.

Here's the first one.  I trimmed the panel and added to some dark grey base card .  I stamped the large sentiment  and added it to my base.  I thought it looked a little stark so I diluted some Nuvo drops and splattered them over the entire card. 

and onto number two:


I added my sentiment directly onto the card panel.  I love the way the background shines through the open part of the sentiment.  This time I backed the panel with black card stock.   This time I just added the Nuvo drops as they are meant to be used.

Thanks for stopping by.
