Catching Up

This is my second post for today, but I really wanted to play along with the Hambo Hoedown and the challenge closes in just a few more hours!  I can’t say I’m extremely happy with the way this card turned out.  I’m going to be brave, though, and post it anyway.  I think I’ll try this technique on a future card, but using a silhouette image instead.

This week at the Hoedown, we were to use a technique from Splitcoast Stampers Resource page.  I chose the Bouncing Brayer technique to create the background on my card.  I had a fall colored spectrum pad that had never been touched, so dug it out and put it to work!  Hooray for using something in my stash!

Stamps – Hambo (Snail Rake – digi)
Paper – Gina K white CS, SU Old Olive CS
Ink – SU Kaleidacolor Spectrum pad (Pumpkin Patch), SU Old Olive (sponging)
Accessories – Cuttlebug embossing folder, orange gemstones, Nestabilities (circle), brayer, baker’s twine, foam dots (popped up main image)

    Wow! This is absolutely fascinating and it looks really hard. I am going to have to go check it out – but I am just not convinced that I have the skill to do it!

    This is so cute! LOVE that paper you used with it too. Great card.
    I haven't gotten to play the last couple of weeks at the Hoedown – hopefully I will for the next one.
    Love your card.

    I think it looks awesome! Love the tie-dye effect and how the image circle is offset on the green circle.

    Wow, what a “groovy” card! I love the bright tie dye and the way you used the sentiment! Thanks for playing along at the Hoedown again!
