Supplies and Materials:
-Miniature cards and envelopes (Pictured: 2.5"x4.25")
-Marker(s) (I used highlighters to match the neon envelopes I used)
-Stamp or die cut of your choosing
This technique is pretty simple and straight forward, but it's how you apply it that makes it special. I like pairing it with my favorite stamps or die cuts, then adding a textured layer for some extra pizzazz. If I'm using a stamp -- I usually go with a glitter layer, however sometimes I use a little Diamond Glaze or Glossy Accents to make some three dimensional dots!
Begin by making a dotted border around the stamped image. I found some adorable neon envelopes on Amazon, so I used some highlighters in matching colors to make my cards match the envelopes. If you're using a die cut, tape it in place with a little scotch tape on the back and draw your dotted line around the edges. Be sure place the dots closely, especially with the die cut version, so that when the die cut is removed you can easily see all the detail of the image left behind.
From your dotted border, extend your dots out to the edge of your card/workspace, then return to the center and add more layers of dots to achieve the desired gradient.
