Thought I better catch up with the April challenges on 12 Months in View. There has been a technique challenge to use the same stamp in various different ways. Stamping is NOT my thing, but I had a go, even got out my Big'n'Juicy pad and brayer. Kinda wish I hadn't bothered with them really as brayering ink isn't me either! Have since popped my Big'n'Juicy in my SWAP box, it was annoying me in my drawer too!
Anyway, I made a splodgy line on my page so decided to cover it up with some sticky ribbon! But the ink wasn't dry enough so it wouldn't stick and even red sticky tape wouldn't stick. I left it and made dinner (something else I'm not fond of doing!).
The stamping techniques used are, clear embossing and inking over. Stamping with the Big'n'Juicy rainbow pad, but my favourite was stamping with Versamark and colouring over with chalks. I added Liquid Pearls, Stickles Glitter and Glossy Accents.
I finally fussy cut a flower from one of the giveaways and stuck it on the page. So I have caught up a bit now. Still need some old CD's to alter (none available at present) and to do a recycled scrapbook page, but perhaps I'll leave that one. I only have 2 pages per month on top of my calendar pages, so we'll see.
- Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm a lapsed crafter of late but still managing my diary Scrapbooking, plus cards as required. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing, not really got back to the latter since the pandemic. I like walking which I couple with Geocaching and sometimes Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I am a Christian.
