I had some fun today playing with the "stripes" technique from Color Conversations. Darlene shares a really cool tip about making sure stripes are masked off evenly in chapter 6 of the DVD. As with most of her tips, it has to do with Eclipse tape and is easy and practical. Darlene also uses the 6" rolls of the tape to make multiple masks of the larger images she uses often.
Darlene uses wood-mounted stamps, but she makes matching up her image lines easy. She calls her eyes a "built in stamp positioner" : always available and free to use. Comments like that make me laugh--and remind me that stamping doesn't have to be complicated.
My first card features stamps from Great Impressions, The Angel Company, and Mrs. O'Leary.
The images used on my second card may be familiar, as they were recently featured here on SQ as part of an I Brake for Stamps vendor challenge.
Am I the only one having fun dusting?
