Today's challenge for Hand Stamped Sentiments is a technique challenge....one I had never heard of! Take a look:
After a little research...what did we do before google?...off to my room I went. And after a bit, I have two cards to share today. Here's my first attempt:
I attempted to use my White gel pen to trace the design in the vase...I think it's time for a new pen! Like I said, I love the card but I wasn't happy with the use of the technique, so onto card #2.
I already had this set on my desk and the cherry image caught my eye. Here's my second card:
Much better! Again I stamped the image and went to work on the rest of the card. Gingham just goes with cherries doesn't it? The pattern is made with Garden Green classic ink and card stock, brayer, and the Stripes embossing folder, I topped it off with a bit of Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon. Here's another closer view of the technique:
I'm so excited to have learned another technique. I can't wait to see what the other designers have come up with, and I'd love to see what you can do! Make sure you link your project to HSS so I can come check it out!
