Bloggers Challenge Week 47


This has to be one of my favourite images from the Hanna SPF 50 set. That is probably quite evident, given my last post featured this image as well.

This wonderful sketch was our Bloggers Challenge group Challenge this week. I combined it with the Hanna Stamps Design Team Challenge, which was to use a brayer.

I am not the most adept at brayering techniques, so this was truly a challenge for me. I chose to do the Crayon Resist technique

I stamped the shell images onto Glossy Cardstock with black Stayzon ink. After letting the ink set, I brayered over the images with Creamy Caramel Ink after using a white crayon to cover the areas that are showing as white on the background. Well the background looked pretty plain still, so I stamped dots in Creamy Caramel. The background was STILL not doing anything for me, so I added some more dots in Teal stayzon. The sentiment is a Rub on from Stampin' up!!!!! I used Taken with Teal Cardstock, combined with Prism's Medium Suede Brown.

  12. Clever girl -- flipping it upside down seems so much better -- looks more natural than the others. Great card!
