I chose to do a versamark resist technique on this one...I stamped my image on the glossy paper with versamark and then ran my brayer over it...the image is not as pronounced as I would have liked...I guess I didn't let the versamark dry long enough...you can see it better in real life...
I stamped my stained glass stamp in versamark and then heat embossed with clear powder...I used my brayer and then cut the piece into strips and flip flopped them for the background. I doodled around the perimeter with my white gel pen. The bunny is mounted on a piece that was embossed with the swirl folder...I did the same technique for the sentiment as the background...I masked the top and bottom of the bunny while I did this. I used my slit punch to make ticket corners and added some jewels...I like it...not sure about anyone else though...I think dh thought it was a little weird but hey, I felt like doing things a little bit outside the box on Saturday! ;-)
Sunday: In addition to scrapbooking...(I really need to post a spread or two...I am really enjoying working on my Heritage book and will share some pages in the near future...)I made a simple note card/gift card set with two of my new favorite stamps from DRS.
I used watercolor paper and stamped the images in black Stazon, then water colored them from the lids of my ink pads...I tore the edges and added some organdy ribbon from Michaels...the image by the sentiment is actually on a stamp with three other images... great for corners, frames, etc....check it out!
Monday (today): The technique challenge was emerging color:http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=235606
What a fun technique!!
I stamped my large paisley in certainly celery and then stamped my butterfly in versamark, embossed it with clear powder. Then I used my brayer over everything inked in orchid opulence. After that, I stamped my small paisley in chocolate chip. I stamped my sentiment in copper craft ink and embossed with clear powder. I added some primas and jewels and pierced a swirl just over the sentiment. I used just the tip of my swirl/flourish stamp in chocolate chip ink. The sentiment is popped. I also used my slit punch in two corners and added some copper/bronze brads. I was pretty pleased with my first try at this challenge...the hardest part was deciding on the color combo...this might/should be great with tomorrows color challenge...whatever that may be!!
Well, I think that brings us up to date for now!!! Oh, a quick shopping/Target update! I went to mine today and the scrapbook aisle has been revamped a little...they have some new sizzlits and are now carrying the Sizzix sidekick as opposed to the Ellison version...they also had...hold onto your chair......Autumn Leaves clear stamps...Rhonna Farrer version....swirls and flower and an alphabet!!!! They have some new flocked paper and I think...I was running late, some polka dotted paper...they had a new supply of Primas...and some new punches...fun, fun, fun!!!
I hope you made it this far!!! Thanks for visiting...see you soon!
