Now I just had way too much fun using today's featured set Hot and Spicy, so I'm showing two different projects for you: a clean-and-simple card plus another framed item.
First up is a card that took about 20minutes to make, mostly because of the couple of masks that were needed for the peppers. The technique is called cascading images and it's really simple to do; it just looks hard. I started out by stamping one of the chili peppers along the right side border, made & cut out a mask, then repeated with a pepper going the other way - moving the masks along the way. Once my stamping was finished, I stamped my saying, highlighted it with prismacolor markers and my card was done.
