The CCEEer's Go Direct
Brenda is the hostest with the mostest for June. She has challenged the CCEE Stampers to a technique challenge.......DIRECT to PAPER. There is a great tutorial for this at SCS. You can use this link to get there. I used my Big Juicy ink pad. I just put white cardstock down on the ink pad and pressed. The results are a backgrounder with varying intensity of color. I kept my design CAS. I used fern stamp from a retired SU set and a sentiment from My Favorite Things. I added a touch of piercing and....voila....the card was done.
I have a tendency to avoid techniques, but there are some background techniques I really do like. This is one of them. The surprise of the results is always fun!
I have a feeling the team will use a variety of direct-to-paper techniques, so be sure to check out the CCEE Stamper's Blog to be inspired and impressed.
