-The images are coloring with Prismacolor pencils, baby oil and paper stumps. Itís the same technique as Gamsol.
-The caramel panel is embossed with the Cuttlebug but I didnít want the stripes raised as high as the procedure produces so I shimmed the plates with cardstock and ran it through again to flatten it some. This helps the panels on top adhere better and puts less bulk to the card.
-Ink distressing is done on sentiment, caramel and designer paper panels.
-Tool distressing is done on the caramel panels with a paper perforator.
-The cording is always so stiff so I did the scissor method you use when curling paper and it sure makes it more soft and flexible.
-For the out of the box technique: I mark the image on the back side while holding to a light source. Cut to the image with my paper cutter, flip it over and cut to the mark on the back. I have a guillotine cutter so it makes it easy to see.
-Layout is from the High Hopes blog.
