Today Melanie shares how to stamp, mask and sponge the postage border in her new Stately Flowers 11 set to make three smaller frames! This is so versatile for spotlighting smaller images like the butterfly in this set or creating a long scene on your cards, whether you choose a portrait or landscape orientation. This faux postage technique is so versatile for both masculine and shabby chic or vintage designs! Please enjoy!

Note: Melanie apologizes for forgetting to add the drop shadow, she noticed after photographing the samples! Please refer to the pic above and just trace the underside of the butterflies and postage border with a gray marker or pencil. You can also a little pop to the black stamped sentiments outlining the left side of each letter with the white gel pen.
