Here’s a cute card using the Swan Lake paper packet & a couple of stamping techniques.
The first technique is just some rock-n-roll on the middle leaf. I started by stamping the leaf in Saffron (this paper uses Goldrush, but since I didn’t have that – Saffron was a great substitute). Then I rolled the edge in Poppy to add a little red/orange to the edge. This a small stamp, so rolling the entire edge almost got rid of the Saffron – so that’s why I only did one side.
I have no idea what to call the other technique – I used it to make the raccoon’s tail look more like fur. After inking the image by tapping, twisting and tapping again – I rubbed just the tail in a vertical movement (in the same direction as the tail), then stamped the image.
