Techniques was the focus for Week 2 of my Beginner Class through our local Adult Education location. Since we only have a one-hour class, I demonstrated a quick technique with "Motion" and the "Bandana Technique" which is what you see here:
The Paisleys & Posies stamp set is perfect for the Bandana Technique. All of the images were stamped using Basic Black Ink on Rich Razzleberry Cardstock. Once the cardstock layer was plastered with all of the stamped images, I showed the girls how to use the tip of the Scoring Tool and some white acrylic paint to add all of the dots in the background:
For Card #2, I used a retired stamp set Plane and Simple to show how to stamp using the Motion Technique. I usually keep some of my retired stamp sets on hand that I know I can use in my techniques classes, so periodically you'll see them being used. You can always substitute with a similar image.
The background was first stamped with the retired stamp called World Map. We then inked the airplane image with Early Espresso Ink and started stamping in the bottom corner and without re-inking the stamp, repeated the airplane image 3 more times and about an inch apart going upwards. Can you see how the airplane looks like it is actually flying downwards?
Thanks so much for stopping by and stay tuned a week from now for my Beginner Class Week #3! Enjoy your day today!
