Well the family holiday came and went and so has Christmas too. Here we are now entering 2013 and I have finally got some creative get go again.
The weather has been sweltering in the high 30's & low 40's so being in my craft area has been a challenge and kept to night time only when the room has cooled ever so slightly.
Just before Christmas I went to a crop and instead of scrapping I decided to play with a technique shown in Craftstamper magazine for August 2012. The technique used highlighters and walnut stain distress ink to create bakgrounds to stamp on. I had some varied results with different brands and colours of highlighters but have to say I do like the effect.
These are the card designs above that I ended up with. Aren't the backgrounds interesting and varied? I will probably do this technique again but need time to play and get it better perfected for my liking.
This last card was just a white emboss resist effect with distress inks using a Hero arts Wildflower cling stamp. Love the set .... and the greeting is a Stampin' Up one from the Delight in Life (discontinued) set.
