very cool technique

This is a very cool technique! I learned this from Laura over on scrapnextras.
You begin by making a template using various paper punches - I used assorted sized circle punches.
Once I punched out a pattern with my circle punches, I placed the template over a piece of Whisper White card stock. Next, I chose a Stampin' Up! Jumbo roller, inserted a Mellow Moss ink cartridge, and I was ready to roll!
Before removing my template I took a Mellow Moss marker and traced around the circles.
I removed the template and coloured in some of the flowers with a Bashful Blue marker for interest.
This technique really intrigued me, I spent some time trying different wheels and punches to create different looks.
Be sure to try this one, and stay tuned for more!
