Reverse Nestabilities

Reverse Nestabilities

I knew I had to try this Reverse Nestabilities technique after watching the wonderful video tutorial Gina K. posted this week. Although it looks like a window card, the stamped image and sentiment are still on the front of the card. The Pacific Point panel is adhered with dimensionals to create the depth effect.

The colors I used for this masculine get well card are from Kristina Werner’s second Readers’ Choice Color Inspiration challenge. I didn’t really have the right purple ink to match the picture, so I ended up stamping with Elegant Eggplant ink (which Kristina said was too dark). I hope she can forgive me!

Thanks for stopping by!
