Beth is still out of pocket for this week - The Challenge will return next Thursday, Sept 7. The tech that I did this week is Bandanna and is from the Aug 08 issue of Technique Junkies. I didn't have a white gel pen so I used a stylus and some white acrylic paint. All of the papers and stamps are from Club scrap.
I hope you enjoy and be sure to come back next Thursday when the challenge resumes.
Michael Strong did a challenge this month to use one of his Cloisonne Stamps and use a "traditional" method of making a card look like a piece of enameled work. I used this "Pot" stamp did a Gold Embossing and then filled in with colored pencils. For the reeds, I used my paper cutter and sliced very thin strips. Rolled some of the strips around a skewer to get the curled look and taped to the Cuttlebug background piece.
I hope you enjoy.....any and all comments appreciated :)
