Neutral Shadows Technique: Elements of Style

Neutral Shadows Technique Card


Today is another one card, two ways day. I just couldn’t decide which way I liked this card better – horizontal or vertical. What’s your favourite?

Both cards use the exact same supplies, I just changed the direction of the card. 

To make this card, I used the Neutral Shadows Technique from Technique Junkies.  Stamp with Whisper White craft ink onto Whisper White cardstock and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Once cool, I used a q-tip to colour the embossed image with Sahara Sand ink. I didn’t want to use a sponge dauber as it is wider and would give a different look to the card.

I layered onto Sahara Sand and Baja Breeze cardstocks and added a stamped Sahara Sand greeting and Baja Breeze Seam Binding to embellish the card. All images are from the Elements of Style stamp set (Wood #118661, Clear #120045).

For this card, I gathered the Baja Breeze Seam Binding by pulling a thread at one end. 


Neutral Shadows Technique Card #2


 I pinched the Baja Breeze Seam Binding and stuck it onto Sticky Strip for this card.

    I really like this technique. I also like the idea that you used a Q-Tip to control the SS ink. My favorite is the vertical design. Thanks for blessing my day. 🙂
