Gossipy Cards

Today, I finally managed to work out how to do borderless printing with my printer!!! I've been wondering how for ages but it never allowed me to tick the option - the answer in the end was to change the paper type to photo paper!!!

So here are two cards I made with my new found skill (lol). I decided to use my Elzybells stamps and here are the results:


I used the Pink Petticoat Pretty Doodles for the background and coloured the image in with Promarkers (YES, my Memento Ink has finally arrived).

Same image and backing paper, but in a different colour. I've added gold detail to areas of the doodles and inked the sides with chalk.
Here's a pic of the card open to see the difference between the back and front.
