Several months ago I discovered Mynettes blog and entered one of her challenge's. One of the things that I really liked about her challenges is the fact that in order to participate I had to learn a new technique! Her instructions are always well written and include lots of photos, making it fun and easy to learn something new. I am answering the crew call that Mynette issued at the Technique Tuesday Blog...go here to check out her call : http://mynnettestechniquetuesday.blogspot.com/?m=0
I chose to try her very first technique entitled "Stamped Punch Window". It's a simple technique that produces a really outstanding result. I chose to put a twist on it by stamping a whole image first, coloring it with my new Copic Markers ( which I got a STEAL on from EBay !). I then used a Spellbinders die to cut out my shape and dry embossed the whole stamped card front with a Spellbinders Embossing folder. I added various colored rhinestones and added pop- dots to the backside. I glued down the die cut onto hot pink cardstock and then placed the whited stamped/embossed negative image centered on top.
Here is a close-up of the details.
I really love this technique ! So much that I created one more variation of it!
This Kraft tag began with using a stencil and my Copics. I colored in the leopard stencil with two shades of Copic turquoise ink and then used a Sizzix die and cut out a heart. On a deep teal sheet of Cardstock I heat embossed an A and then added dimensional's underneath the stenciled paper. I set that on top and then added a piece of Rhinestone mesh below. Believe it or not the rhinestone piece came off of a fancy pair if flip flops that fell apart! Sometimes pack-ratting stuff does pays off!!! A black satin bow on top covering the tags' hole and voila, a fun gift tag to add to a card front or hang from a gift, wine bottle, jewelry box nob, the possibilities are many!
Thanks for stopping by for a look!
