The next technique covered in class really did need a graphic line-art stamp. The closes thing I had was a very small (1 1/2 inch) grid with interlocking edges. I stamped it over and over to fill the whole cardstock using brown ink. I colored in the squares with metallic colored pencils and used a lavender one in the spaces between the blocks.
For the first card I used a square punch to make blocks which I bordered in brown. These were placed on a shimmer green background in a non-traditional arrangement. I placed a gold Dazzles dove on each block and colored them with a pastel alcohol marker. A gold Dazzles sentiment finishes it.
I used the remainder of the colored panel as a strip bordered in brown. A thin green strip of cardstock, stamped with a sentiment, fills the center of the patterned strip. This is placed on a shimmer bronze panel and three punched butterflies have brown colored bodies.
I used a lavender card base to pick up the lines in the grid strip.
