PW Technique Challenge Sept 2012

Today's card is another one that was inspired by a challenge on the Paper Wishes Message Board.  This time it was the technique challenge for September 2012.

I used a stamp from Hot Off the Press - from the Botanicals set.  I stamped it in black and then colored it in using metallic cream chalks, using my Dove blender pen for the small spaces.

The technique called for cutting 3 pieces of cardstock, each smaller than the last, layering them on top of one another and then stamping your image.  When you take them apart and mat them, you get a look something like what I have here.  Since I was going to cut my pieces with dies, I decided to save on cardstock. I just took one piece, stamped and colored it, and then cut it with a couple dies from my Marvelous Squares die set to get the 3 different pieces.  To get my mats, I traced around the outside of the dies onto teal paper and cut along the traced lines. Once again, I just cut the 2nd mat from the middle of the larger one to save cardstock.
