Video: Faux Postage Technique with Stately Flowers 11

Hello! Thanks for all the wonderful feedback about this card in our hop! In today's video I share how to stamp, mask and sponge the postage border in my new Stately Flowers 11 set to make three smaller frames! This is so versatile for spotlighting smaller images like the butterfly in this set or creating a long scene on your cards, whether you choose a portrait or landscape orientation. This faux postage technique is so versatile for both masculine and shabby chic or vintage designs! Please enjoy! I hope you will subscribe to my channel so you never miss a video, new techniques and stamp sets featured every week!

Note: Oops! I apologize for forgetting to add the drop shadow at the end during the video, I only noticed after photographing the samples something was missing! Please refer to my photo above and just trace the underside of the butterflies and postage border with a gray marker or pencil. You can also a little pop to the black stamped sentiments outlining the left side of each letter with the white gel pen. :)
