I hope you're all having a great week.
Today I'm posting about one of my favorite techniques.
Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge this week is "Favorite Techniques"
I have long been a fan of the Simon Says Blog and just recently became acquainted with their challenges.
One of my favorite techniques is stamping on pages from old books.
I love the look of it, the vintagy feel and I really enjoy coloring on these pages.
Here are 2 cards where I have used this technique.
On this card I used "Rose" (#17505) from Eureka! Stamps and colored it with watercolor crayons. Using these crayons, you must be careful not to use too much water or the paper will literally crumble.
This card was made with a stamp from Stampin' Up, sorry I don't know the name of it, but it was a hostess special a long time ago.
Again I used watercolor crayons to color it and used another of my favorite techniques and 'fussy cut' the image.
I know a lot of people don't like fussy cutting, but I love it.
Where many say it makes them nuts to do all that cutting, I find it to be very relaxing.
Thanks for stopping by today. Leave a comment if you will then
why now pop on over to the Simon Says blogs and check them out.
I'm sure there will be tons of great techniques to see not only from the design team, but from others entering the challenge, like me.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!
