Good Morning Stampers!! I am so excited to show you the project I made today for the Hand Stamped Sentiments Technique Challenge for this week! It is using the Baby Wipe Technique, if you have never tried it you MUST, and if you have never heard of it check it out HERE!!! There are 2 different kinds of techniques using a Baby Wipe, I used the "swiping" one. :)
For this weeks project, I used a design that I have come to LOVE and use a LOT!! Sometime too much- I love anything baroque looking or that has that type of feel to it. I used regular vanilla card stock instead of the glossy card stock that it recommends in the tutorial. I wanted to see what effect it would give me, and I must say that I kind of like the rustic weathered feel it gave the card.
I kept the card very simple and really tried to play up the texture of the card instead of the bling and embellishments this go around. I threw in a splash of elegant eggplant as a layer of color behind my main stamped image.
I also kept this card very general so that I could use it for any occasion that came up. I love having a ton of these types of cards around, because if you know me well- you know that I am never all that prepared. It would never show though, I always have a stash of cards laying around and so when I need one- I just yank it out and jot down a note. I gave a slew of these to my good friend who is the pres. of our Relief Society. She keeps them in her car so if she misses someone when she stops in to see them she can leave them a note. She loves them!
Well I hope you enjoyed this weeks project, please head over to HSS and play along- we would LOVE to see what you create for this weeks challenge. I love to share and get inspiration from everyone. Have a great day and until next time~ TTFN
