Encouraged by Darnell at her blog, I decided to try the hidden word technique on this card. That's what I started out to do, but it didn't work out. First, I'll show you my card, then I'll explain a bit more, although it's obvious from the picture that the word is not hidden.
After stamping the background using my MISTI, I die cut the upper portion. I also cut "believe" out of plain white card stock 3 times so I could layer it with the stamped portion on top. However, once I placed the stamped portion on top and inlaid it into the card, "believe" did not show up at all. It was too well hidden for my tastes so I decided to use only the plain card stock. That was too white, so I colored it with a Spectrum Noir marker and inlaid it. I also used my SN marker to edge the panel before layering in on the grey panel and, ultimately, the card base. I thought it needed a wee bit of color, so I used a small heart punch and voila!
