Our Creative Corner wants us to try out a new technique this week, that's cool, an old dog can still learn new tricks. I have admired cards with brayering on them for a long time. I had actually started out in my mind to try a resist technique, but forgot to put the resist on first. I brayered a piece of glossy paper with the Ranger Happy Birthday Big and Juicy ink pad, when I finished, cleaned off my hands and brayer, because for some reason I had the ink up to my wrists. Oh, goody, that qualifies for Doing the Mess Around challenge at Saturday Spotlight . Back to my train of thought--that's where the old dog comes in--the paper kind of had a misty evening feeling to me, I thought of this set of stamps and Wah Lah there is an article in the March Scrap and Stamp Arts magazine about Mirror Stamped Cards, new technique for me.
I'm going to take a little liberty here and say my friend Liz, because she was one of my first followers and comes to visit pretty often with lots of nice comments. She's on the design team at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog. She stopped by this morning and put me on to a blog hop they are having with some new release digis and if you do the hop you have a chance to win a couple of the new releases. That being said I'm adding them to my side bar and entering this card in their challenge for this week-Touchy Feely!!-that would be the distressing around the edges and my little bit of bling dots, they are always tactile.
Whew-bet you thought I never was going to get to the challenge list:
I have to do a quick edit and add another challenge that I missed seeing on my list this afternoon:
Another quick edit here, when Avril left me a nice comment, she also reminded me to leave a link to The Craft Barn, I forgot, thanks Avril, be sure to hop over and check out the huge selection and wonderful customer service at--The Craft Barn
