Make It Monday #244 - Score Lines

Hello friends.  Playing along with this weeks Make It Monday challenge where Laurie Willison shows how adding score lines to our projects can add detail and texture!  I have been in love with the Splits: Just A Note set by Maile Belles since it came out and thought it would be a great one to use on this challenge.  This is what I came up with:



I started with blending 2 colors of ink (Dusty Concord & Worn Lipstick) on my background...Kay Miller does this often and I love that look!  Next I scored the layer every half inch to bring some more dimension to my background.  I also ink splattered the background a bit to give just a little more visual interest.  Next I stamped the die cut in black and the sentiment in Dusty Concord, and then pop dotted it to my background.  A few sequins and a white embossed butterfly (What The Doodle: Butterfly) on vellum finished off my card. 

Laurie has a great video and cards showing different ways to add scoring to your cards, and you can check it all out right HERE.

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!!  :0)

  18. Wow, Marcia! I love it so. You did great pairing the split set with the doodled butterfly. P.S. I think you are so brave to have ordered Maile's set - I wish I had.
