Today when I went into my craft room there was a Baja Breeze Scallop Circle sitting on my desk (left over from the frame I made on Saturday for the Aqua Less is More card) so I decided I would use it and have another go at the challenge. I started by masking off an area on a card blank and stamping the tiny flower, from Flight of the Butterfly, in Baja Breeze. I then placed it on my scoring board and scored a line either side of the border to give a negative embossed line. The Scallop Circle was run through the Polka Dots Embossing Folder and the edges inked before placing onto the stamped border. I then used a piece of SU Vellum cardstock to cut and emboss the butterflies with the Beautiful Wings Embosslits die and placed these onto the card and added some Basic Pearls. The sentiment is one from Flight of the Butterfly and this was stamped in Baja Breeze. This was quite a quick card to make and used up some scraps which would otherwise have ended up in the bin!
On Saturday night it was so cold and I was nice and warm in my living room so, as I didn't really want to move, I did what I do best (and far too much of!) and trawled through a lot of my favourite crafting blogs. I came across someone who had used a technique I was not familiar with - the Bandana Technique - so I diverted to YouTube to investigate. I suppose the nearest thing to compare it with is wax resist but using a white pencil. Now I know I have several coloured pencils and I'm sure one of them has to be white but, in my grand tidy up, I have put them 'somewhere' and could I find them? Well you know the answer to that. As I had already stamped my flower from Greenhouse Garden, and not to be beaten, I decided to try emboss resist using white embossing powder instead and this is the result. No masterpiece but acceptable - ISH. Finished off with Baja Breeze Seam Binding and a sentiment from Perfect Pairs.
