The Belleek Technique for Tuesday Tips or Techniques!

Good morning blog readers! I have a sweet new technique, new for me today! Have you heard of the "Belleek Technique"? The Belleek Technique is a subdued, porcelain-look for your background. the background is reminiscent of porcelain or bisque pottery/china. When completing this technique you are limited to soft, light, neutral colors. Let's take a look:

I used the Elegant Bouquet Textured Embossing Folder for this technique. I inked up my Brayer with Crumb Cake Ink and inked up the inside of the folder that would be considered the negative space. In other words, the side without the bumps for the flowers. Add Whisper White Cardstock inside and run the folder through your Big Shot Machine and voila!

I love that we have coordinating punches. I first stamped the image from A Round Array Stamp Set and cut it out with the 7/8" Scallop Circle Punch. This is the punch we were able to earn for free during Sale-A-Bration and it is now available for purchase...yahoo! I layered that over Crumb Cake Cardstock cut with the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch and layered a 3rd time over a Whisper White Cardstock layer cut with the 1 3/4" Scallop Circle Punch. Each layer is glued with a Stampin' Dimensional!

Here is a close-up of the Belleek Technique. Let me know what you think okay? It's fairly easy to complete and ends up being a "WOW" card!
