Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year. My laptop started playing up before Christmas and I'm waiting to have it fixed. The person who sorts them out for us is off till 11th Jan, so still waiting. In the meantime I'm having to use hubby's when I can. I don't think he's very happy as I've been adding programmes and photos, but hopefully it won't be for long now.
Onto the new challenge at C.R.A.F.T. This week we want to see you using a resist technique. For those of you new to this, the easiest way to do it is to find a fairly solid stamp, then stamp with Versamark and clear emboss. Then just add your choice of ink colours to the image and surrounding card with some cut and dry foam or similar. Lastly, get a paper towel and rub where you've embossed and the ink will come off the embossing showing a white colour. There are other resist techniques, but this is the one I used.
Our sponsor this week is Your Special Delivery. To be in with a chance of winning a lovely prize this week, please have entries in by 8pm next Wednesday. New work only please.
For my card I've used a stamp from 'Birdsong' by Elusive Images. I've stamped it onto a scalloped circle with Versamark, embossed with clear embossing powder, then coloured using Distress Inks. I rubbed over the embossed image with a paper towel to bring it up, then lastly added a gem for the bird's eye. I nested this onto another scalloped circle. I've also used the resist technique on the mottled backing paper. I used a large stamp, with exactly the same technique as before. Other items used are Bazzill dots card with faux stitching, scalloped chipboard, brown ribbon and clear gems which I coloured with a Henna Pro-Marker. All mounted on an A5 card.
