Shadow Stamping

Happy Wednesday!
Today, I am super excited to be hosting the Mod Squad Challenge.
Any of you that know me well, know that I'm a lover of 'techniques', so my challenge 
is to create something using the 'Shadow Stamping' technique.

Supplies Used:  Gina K. Designs Stately Flowers 8, by Melanie Muenchinger, Gina K. Designs Pure Luxury White Cardstock (MY LAST PIECE - EEK!!!), Tim Holtz Distress Inks, Tattered Rose, Victorian Velvet, Foam Dots, Kaiser Craft Pearls, A Muse Cardstock (Mat), Perfect Papercrafting Mini Rulers (see sidebar for details)

For my card today, I've used Melanie Muenchinger's 'Stately Flowers 8', which can be found at 
Gina K. Designs. This set is gorgeous - I am totally in love with all of Melanie's flower sets, and her basket sets are amazing, too!  When I win the lottery, I shall own them all :)  This set was in my
mailbox this week - a gift from Melanie.  You should have seen my Post Office happy dance!
Thank you Melanie - you are so kind and generous!

If you have never shadow stamped, you will have fun with this.
Find a stamp that would look nice with a shadow.  Stamp it once in a darker color,
then stamp again, moving the image slightly, to create a shadow image.
If you are a visual learner, Gina has a great video on StampTV, showing this technique.
If you've ever been stumped on a monochromatic card challenge, this technique would be perfect!

Thanks for stopping by - hope that you will try this technique,
and play along with this challenge at the Mod Squad Challenge Blog!

Can't wait to see your creations!

Hugs & Blessings,
Patti J.
