Faded Smudge

Here’s a technique you can use with Glossy Card. I call it the Faded Smudge Technique and it’s super easy after embossing an image on your Glossy Card. Use it as a focal piece or for a whole card front, the possibilities are endless.

This is the first card I made using this technique and I used Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Island Indigo. Always start withe the lightest colour first which goes in the middle and creates almost like a spotlight effect.

You could use other stamp sets for the background such as Tabs For Everything  or florals, change the focal image and colours. Using colours in the same family, help to make this technique easy and a WOW factor for your cards.
