Try that Technique -- Card #2 from Pat

As you know, today's Try that Technique is Textured Tape from the October 2005 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter. I actually made TWO cards for this technique: the one above, and the one on my personal blog HERE: http://patstamps.blogspot.com.  Obviously I made this from the same background as the other -- but I like how I can use them in two different ways. The card on this blog has a more elegant feel to it; my blog has a more whimsical feel.

This card uses Starving Artistamps Fossil stamps and a Seaside Stamping saying with the Out of the Box Technique (October 2004 TJ Newsletter). If you look closely you can see that I embossed the background and highlighted the embossing. I love this card in person!

Beth's post below this one shows an exquisite example of using the technique rich with color. I found her card VERY inspirational!  Now...it is time for YOU to Try that Technique!
