6/18 Shadow Dance Memory


This is a card I created for my clubs to make in order to showcase the Shadow Dance Technique. I love how pretty and elegant it is. Shadow Dancing is such a simple technique. All you do is stamp your image in White Craft ink onto your choice of colored card stock. Once it is dry, stamp the image again using ink that matches the card stock. Offset the image just slightly with a Stamp-a-ma-jig and you will get the Shadow Dance look.

The square medallion is made with the Eyelet Border Punch. I started with a 3" square of Chocolate Chip card stock and then center punched each side once. The Close to Cocoa card stock uses the Circles #2 Die and the Big Shot machine. This size is nice for layering behind the 1 3/4" Circle Punch which is what I used to cut out my main image.

The stamp set is called "Close as a Memory" and it is on our Last Chance List. I have used this set over and over ever since it debuted. The sentiments are really nice and the sprig of flowers can be used on many different types of cards.

Thank you so much for dropping by to visit my blog today . . . Happy Stamping!!
