Don't you just hate posting a card that you don't like near as well as the post below it?? Ha ha ha! Needless to say, after that comment, I'm not too crazy about my card that I came up with for this challenge! I don't HATE it -- it just doesn't look like what it looked like in my head when I thought of the idea -- also hate when that happens! Maybe I should just change the name of this post to "Don't you hate when....." OK - I'm done complaining now! (hee hee!)
This week the challenge was to do any resist technique. I've been wanting to use this background stamp that I got at convention last year. I sadly have not used it since then!! I don't really love the stamp as a whole, but it's cute if you use the different strips on it. I was trying to challenge myself to use it as a whole. Well, I cheated a little! I ended up cutting it into blocks so I could have that little bit of color throughout. It was pretty boring all together.
Oh yeah, the technique........(I'm easily distracted!) I used the emboss resist technique. I used Versamark ink on white glossy cardstock and embossed it with clear powder. Then I just used my aqua painter and ink pads to color the different parts of the image. The colors just don't look as vibrant on the glossy paper - or maybe it's just from the residue of the embossing powder. The only orange doesn't really look orange at all!
Hope everyone is having a fabulous day!
