Wow! Two posts in one day! Well, there was something else I wanted to share with you because it is so cool and so easy.
I was mooching around on the web looking for some inspiration for my new stamps from the Spring Mini Catalogue, from Stampin' Up! I happened across this card by Barbara Hardeman on Splitcoast Stampers. The card was made using a technique I had not come across before – the Bandanna Technique. The stamp set Barbara has used, True Friend, lends itself perfectly to the "bandanna look" and happened to be one of my new sets!
I decided to use this as inspiration for my card to pop in with my Spring Mini Catalogue mail out. So I searched the web to find instructions on the Bandana Technique. It is actually very easy. Ink your stamps with black ink, I used Staz on, stamp your stamps on Whisper White cardstock. Sponge over the colours of your choice. Then highlight areas of the design with a white gel pen. Too easy! Anyway, for the sample, I have made here, I decided to go with a more traditional bandanna look and just use Real Red, so I brayered over my colour instead of sponging it.
Hope you like it! Let me know what you think.
Thanks for dropping by, Claire.
