I'm playing along with this week's MIM challenge - stamping on the reverse side of a die-cut, and folding it over to show the "other-side" stamping.
I used "in bloom" to stamp a border along the right side of the card, masking the leaves and blooms as I went along. After I cut it out, I used a black marker to trace along the edge, to help it look more finished (sigh. my markering skills look more than a little sloppy in the pictures, but more forgivable in real life.)
For the MIM technique, I stamped the same flower and leaves onto white paper, colored them, and cut them out (note to self: purchase dies.) The leaf isn't symmetrical, but I made it work by only stamping part of the leaf on the backside, and only curling that small part of the paper.
Even though the border isn't perfectly cut out, I still like the look - I'll be trying this again!
Thanks for peeking! And please, please, please come back tomorrow - it will be my 1 year blogiversary, and there will be a few giveaways!
