How'd ya do that?

I've been asked:

"How did you match up the swirl on this card to flow from the chocolate chip to the sky blue??

Tell me this was luck or the eyeball method or some funky new way of matching it up. Actually, I am hoping there is technique to this."


This is really quite simple:
Cut your two colors of card stock to size (note, I started off with a 5 1/4" x 4" piece of each color - I cut the chocolate chip to 3 1/4" x 4" and the sky to 2 1/8" x 4")


Now ink your image in versamark, and stamp it on your card stock so that it overlaps both colors




Reink your stamp and reposition it, and stamp only on the second color



I was making these cards for a swap - and the great thing about cutting my card stock like this - is that I'll be able to get double the cards - just reverse my colors and I'll get this look

hmm, I thought you stamped with versamark on both cardstocks only. Now you say second color?
