SBS 25 Challenge #2


Our challenge #2 in Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers Group 25 (SBS25) was to try a new technique. Supplies are limited here in Japan. I wasn't sure what to do so I set off to Splitcoaststampers for inspiration. I was searching through the techniques trying to decide what to try. I came across the one using Goo Gone to blend Primacolors. For these cards, I stamped & embossed with clear embossing powder. I then colored the images in with my Prismacolor pencils. Then, I put a little bit of Goo Gone on a Q-tip. In the technique tips, they said use stumps. I don't have one of those so I used Q-tips. I slowly went over the colored parts. I made sure to use a different part of the Q-tip for each color. It kinda smears the colors a bit. Maybe thats because of the Q-tip. I don't know. I do know they are cheap. lol Anyway, these are the invites for my upcoming Pampered Chef party. The papers are all from Club Scrap's Private Eye kit. The stamp is from CTMH. My dd picked out the embellishments on each card. She was so excited to see the end result.

Nice job! I just can't seem to get it together to work on a challenge. Must be my rebel peeking out. Nonconforming. Resist when given a challenge. Yikes. I need therapy.
