Bandanna Technique

Good afternoon! I'm still on vacation and enjoying it. I haven't stamped much the last couple of weeks, I've been way too busy. But I did make time to play a little bit. Here is the result:

This is a technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter called a Bandanna technique. I made the background paper with alcohol inks on glossy cardstock, then ran it through the cuttlebug embossing folder. I hit the embossed parts with a purple dye inkpad and allowed it to dry. Then I took a white Jelly Roll Glaze pen and put dots around all the embossed parts. It looks really cool in real life.

I spent the morning at the community pool with my youngest granddaughter. She's been so good and is so excited for school to start. She has been a pure joy and one of the reasons I haven't stamped much.

We are due for our afternoon thunderstorm, so I will sign off for now. Hope you are getting some crafting done, and we'll talk again later.

I love what you've done with the bandana tech. It's neat and gives me ideas. Glad you're having fun with grand-daughter.

OMGoodness - this is gorgeous! I am sure in person it looks even better! (I've been a bit scared of Alcohol inks... just because I have heard how addictive they are?! LOL?!)

Great job!
