Day 4 Scor-Pal Fun
Sorry about missing the post yesterday. I took pictures in the morning since it was a beautiful sunny day here in Cleveland. Then I went downtown to the Botanical Gardens to see the orchid show. It was gorgeous!! I plan on creating a class around the pictures I took there!! So today I will have two post!
On this card I used the Scor-Pal and created a frame around the edge and then inked to define it more.
First I scored the wrong side of a half sheet of paper at 4 1/4" and crease. Then, also on the wrong side, of the front of the card, I scored 1/2" around all of the edges.
Next, I lightly rubbed the ink over the card all in the same directions. I do it very lightly then you will not get streaks in the ink. If you like the lighter color leave it or apply the ink lightly until you get the shade you like. Can you see how it really defines the scored framed edge?
I also scored at the bottom of the rectangle that the horses were stamped and inked them too with ink. This grounds the horses and ties in the frame at the same time. The two cards on the right are done in the same fashion but both slightly different to give you more ideas. On the right I scored 1/4" on the sides and then attached it to a half sheet of MatchMakers CS. I love these Hieroglyph Horses!! I used Juliette SWIC on the top card and the the right hand card in this picture and Sands of Times CSWIC was used on the left side of this photo.
Today's question for all of you 'want to be winners' is ..... Which of the Soar with It Collections is your favorite? Remember to leave an answer to the question to entry in for the drawings ... you can go back and enter on previous post also! I will be posting a second entry later tonight to make up for yesterday!
