Video: Enlarge the Postage Frame to Add Any Flowers or Images!


Hello! Today I am sharing yet another way to use the versatile postage frame in Stately Flowers 11: using the omission technique to ink just the corners to create a new rectangular or square frame of virtually any size for your cards and projects with open spaces to add any flowers or stamped images you want to the opposite corners, creating a new frame of any theme that you like! I also does a little masking to show how you can frame up a single word beautifully within the frame.  Today’s design features simple coloring and blending with Prismas and Gamsol on my mock orange blossoms and butterfly. Be sure to watch to the end to see a square design with this same omission technique!  Please enjoy!


Here is a link for the Prismacolor pencils I used in the video.

Supplies:
Gina K. Designs Stately Flowers 11 stamp set
Pure Luxury White 4” x 5 ¼”, and Ocean Mist (4 ¼” x 11”, scored at 5 1/2”) cardstock
Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad
MISTI or acrylic block, Prismacolor premier colored pencils (50% Warm Gray, Grass Green, Pink, True Blue), blending stumps, gamsol, adhesive, foam adhesive, scissors, sticky notes for masking


Square card uses GKD Lipstick cardstock and ink, colored with Spectrum Noir markers.
