The drop shadow effect
Today I want to share with you a fun technique that I used on some cards that I made the other day. It’s the drop shadow effect, which is basically the illusion of a shadow on the focal point or on the sentiment. It is really easy to create but the result is pretty impressive. I decided that I want the drop shadow effect on the sentiment. So all I had to do was to die-cut the sentiment two times. One out of white cardstock and one out of a coloured paper. Then I stocked them on top of its other but I made sure that they were not perfectly aligned. You are able to see that there are two layers and that’s what created the drop shadow effect
I made three cards using the same technique. I kept the rest of the card very simple. I just used a pattern paper for the background in pastel colours. For the focal point a went for a girl and a teddy bear. I used my Inktense Pencils to colour them in and I fussy cut them. I also die-cut some balloons in coordinating colours and I assembled the cards! What do you think? I really love this technique! It’s really fun and impressive!
