The "Brand New"Technique Tuesday Blog Hop

Hello!
Welcome to the "Brand New" Technique Tuesday blog hop.
Technique Tuesday’s Stamping Techs are blog hopping again, and we are delighted this month to share with you some cool projects made with some of the new stamps Technique Tuesday is debuting this week at the CHA trade show in California.
I had a lot of fun putting this card together and playing with a brand-spanking new set!

Beautiful yellow daffodils. I love it when they show up in early spring and I couldn’t resist pulling out all of my unused yellow inks, paper, glitter pens… Not so much a fan of the yellow, but for this flower, how could I not??? This is a set called “Daily Daffodils” and besides the striking image there are 5 sentiments.
 
Specifics about the project:
  • I first stamped the image with a light yellow ink, then I used the “Rock ‘n Roll” technique around the edges of the stamp with a shade of dark yellow.
  • after the image dried I highlighted the original artwork with Copic Spica pens in gold and clear to give it some glam
  • The basic grey papers used originally had the red and black inking around the perimeter of the paper (6x6 pad) so when I cut out the pieces I replicated the inking with Ranger Distress Inks.

  3. Perfect card, it's so warm, with the colours and the image. Beautifull!

    Hmm wordpress, wordverificatoin and firefox or Internet Explorer don't work together well, it kept saying the word I typed was wrong as if it changed the word before submitting my credentials.
    Trying with name/url option now...
