CTMH Technique Blog Hop - Call for Backup - Pg. 80

Welcome to June's CTMH technique blog hop. This month we are highlighting the “Call for Back-up” Technique found on page 80 of the Close to My Heart's Annual Inspirations Idea Book focusing on creating unique effects by backing negative spaces with some other material - _____ -  fill in the blank with your creative imagination; B&T paper, ribbon, shimmer trim, Fundamental papers...the list is endless!  For the entire hop list go to Debi Barber.  This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the  fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. If you are. coming from Catherine Nowak, you're are on the right track!

Added a matching ShinHan marker (Peacock Green) to the Bling
This card is so simple and easy.  I was inspired by a card made by Julie Reynolds that used only one single punch of the CTMH Chevron punch.  Thinking outside of the box = unique effects.
