A New Technique

A very early post today. We are waiting for my sister to have her cataract removed and we have to stay by the phone to go get her when she is released. This is the second one she has had removed so this should be it.

After we dropped her off at the hospital we went down to the fruit stand and got a flat of strawberries to freeze, the biggest head of leaf lettuce I’ve ever seen and a cucumber. So happy to see the local produce again. I don’t think the cucumber was local unless it was grown in a greenhouse but the strawberries were and the lettuce sure was – the root was still on it.

A couple of weeks ago I went to The Pampered Stamper’s technique university night and had a blast. She is one of the local Stampin’ Up dealers and her and three other dealers each taught a group of us their technique. One of the cards I made was this one:

You start by rubbing ink around a piece of white cardstock, blending the colours here and there. We used Stampin’ Up ink of course, but any ink would work. Then we placed a circle stencil over the top of it and rubbed white ink into the circles. We moved the stencil around and even over-lapped some of the circles. Nice effect! Then we stamped the sentiment and then the ferns twice, without re-inking and repeated. The double ribbon does not go all around the back as it would be too bulky so we just taped the ends to the back – saves a lot of ribbon too. This was then glued to the green card base. Love this card and I will be doing this technique over and over.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone. We are expecting torrential rainfall for both Saturday and Sunday so I’m glad I have indoor hobbies to fall back on when we can’t bike or hike.
