Plaid Sihlouette Technique

What a fun technique this is!  Even if I had to make dozens of them it was still fun!  And not to mention easy too!

You find a stamp that has a solid background and ink it with a light color.  Then you take a darker color and tap the edge of the ink pad on the stamp.  Then you take the next color and stamp the edge of that pad on the stamp but you turn the stamp so the lines are going the other direction.  That gives you the plaid look.  If you have a bigger image you can add more colors for the plaid lines.  It was a lot of fun making these and I want to try this on a card sometime soon.  

I bet you are in shock that I have yet another technique page ready!! I can't say it's done.  I have the pages all cut out and stamped but I don't have them put together.  I put them in boxes and set them aside for when we go on road trips.  Fortunately I am one who can read, craft and even bead in the car (when I am not driving!!!).  Oh and don't forget, all this is done while watching a DVD too!!!  

If you are interested in purchasing the technique pages, they are available in my web store.   Sets 1 - 3 are available on CD.  These pages are set up to print out, cut two sides so the page is 5-3/4" x 5-3/4".  They are then decorated in a Technique Club or Technique Class and set on a 6" x 6" piece of coordinating card stock and placed in an album for future reference.  Photos of the finished pages are included for reference. 

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
