So much for my regular Throwback Thursday's, I seem to have missed quite a few! Oh well, I hope you will forgive me? I'm back today with a new Throwback Thursday card, which is based on this card seen HERE from way way back in 2012!
And this is my NEW version...
There are a few reasons I chose this card to revisit, firstly the doilies. After many a request Decorative Doilies - The Hands Of Time is now back in stock on the website along with a couple of other sets. Secondly I really like the colour combo and Rock 'N' Roll technique I used to stamp the doilies and thirdly because the current challenge over at Crazy for CAS HERE is doilies!
For the Rock 'N" Roll stamping technique you want a spectrum of two or three ink colours. They don't have to be in the same colour family for it to work it can be any colours you wish. I chose Papertrey Ink Summer Sunrise & Stampin' Up! Pumpkin Pie as I like these paired together.
First of all you want to place your stamp on a block that is just big enough, so that there isn't too much block overhang. Then you start my inking your stamp with the lightest colour you've chosen, in my case the Summer Sunrise. The reason for this is simply because there will be less colour contamination going from light to dark rather than the other way round.
Then you roll the edges of the stamp in the second colour, changing the angle of the rolling determines how much of the stamp edges are inked. As you can see mine are quite subtle and had my stamp at a fairly high angle.
You can watch THIS video here which explains the technique.
In other news I am super pleased and excited to have been selected for the TIME OUT Challenge blog Design Team. The challenges start in March and all the details can be found HERE on the TO Challenge Blog.
Ok, I think I have waffled on for long enough! I'll be back tomorrow with more to share, until then, thank you for stopping by today :)
