Blogger's Challenge #14!


This week's challenge was to use spectrum stamp pads in our designs. I chose to FINALLY try out a technique featured in Technique Junkies August/September Newsletter. (For more info on Technique Junkies, please go to http://www.patstamps.com/ and check it out! Pat Huntoon, one of the Blogger's Challenge members is the guru of techniques and publishes a technique newsletter every other month and it's AWESOME!)



I chose the Pumpkin Patch spectrum pad from the current Fall/Winter Collection. The technique used is called Rainbow Double. I used Olive Wide Grosgrain ribbon and isn't that a lovely knot? I watched a short video featured on Kristina Werner's blog (http://kwernerdesign.com/blog/) to pick up some hints on making it lie so flat. One of the gals at the SU convention tried to teach me, too but I think I finally got it! The brayer (rubber attachment) helps to make the spectrum blend together so nicely. I used Garden Silhouettes (a hostess set) and It's Your Birthday stamp sets. The colors are Only Orange and Old Olive and the top layer is on Glossy White.

Thanks for looking and be sure to check out the other bloggers!!!
