Bandanna Technique

The challenge at the RangerInkLink group at Yahoo in September was the Bandanna technique. When I first read about it, I wasn't quite sure that this was a challenge in which I would take part.

I didn't think that I had any stamps (NO cute paisley stamps) that would work for the challenge, but as the month went by and as I looked at the various cards that were posted, I decided that I could probably give it a go.

I'm very pleased with the cardstock background that the technique produced. I didn't think that the "free-style" of doodling would appeal to me, but as I played more and more with the products, I found that I REALLY enjoyed making this piece.

Since I made this card almost a month ago, my poor pitiful brain is struggling to remember what products were used!!

I think the background has broken china and weathered wood distress inks. I then stamped the Autumn Leaves flourishes with black ink. After that I doodled with the Signo white pen.

Since I got my first set of Nesties (the ovals), I've been trying to use them as often as I can!!! The sentiment is a Studio G clear stamp.

Materials: cardstock (black - Bazzill; white - Georgia Pacific); inks (distress ink - Ranger; black - Colorbox); stamps (Autumn Leaves & Studio G); white pen (Signo); die (Nestabilities); adhesive (Pioneer mounting tape).

Thanks for taking a look.
