Hidden Word

Happy Sunday Afternoon Everyone!
It's snowing here in Ohio so why not do a little crafting to share with all of you!
Actually, today is the final day to enter the second part of Darnell's celebration and partake in NBUS Challenge #9.  


One of the optional themes this week is the 'HIDDEN WORD' technique.
Now, since I had never before tried this (and it looks so awesome) of course I was intrigued and had to give it a whirl.


I must admit I think I can do better!  Guess I need to actually find instruction on this technique.  I was just guessing at how it's actually done since I was in a hurry to get my card created and entered before time expired.    I think it's an awesome technique and can't wait to see what else I can achieve.

Here I've simply taken a white card stock panel and sponged two different Tim Holtz distress ink colors.  Then I stamped a very old SU flower stamp then did my die cutting using the Tutti Designs 'Sympathy' Word Set (I used the larger of the two dies).  A few little Nuvo white crystal drop pearls in the corners and my card is ready to go.  I am always in need of sympathy cards for my sale boxes so I think this will be a simple yet impressive design to use.

UPDATE:  Okay so I took the time to create one more card using this technique, only this time I watched a video on YouTube which showed me my problem ... not enough underlying layers to give me the dimension needed.  This is better!  Here's a link to the Papertrey Ink  video I watched.



Thanks of  stopping by today.
If you're in the cold weather (as we are), please stay warm
