How cool is this technique? Read on to find out how to create the velveteen look!
Check out Karolyn's card.....sweet eh?
Please refer to Karolyn's tutorial for full instructions as my card is an improvised version:
I did not have a suitable background stamp (I actually only have one background stamp and it is French script!) so I used a 2'" x 2" chevron stripe for my background....hence the 2" panel versus a full card!
Karolyn used stamps that have a good amount of solid space. Again, my supply was limited so thankfully this ancient SU set worked okay. The tulip has a bit of a pattern on it so the chevron stripes are less noticeable than on the leaves.
Don't you just love these Paper Smooches stamps that Karolyn used? She also has a hot tip on some great pigment ink..."No joke – this ink offers incredible coverage and a perfect image every single time! I can’t imagine my crafting life without this ink – no craft room should be without it!". Karolyn initially came across the Velveteen Stamping technique on Shari Carroll's blog a few months ago.
