The Wilderness Awaits Camouflage Technique

Today I'm going to share with you the stamping technique that Terri had at her last Technique Night for her downline.  Mary taught this fun technique. This is a very easy and fun technique to do.  I just put my card together last night.  I had it for a couple of weeks but didn't get back to assembling it.

We took a piece of Very Vanilla card stock and covered it with Sahara Sand ink.  You can use Crumb Cake ink instead of the Sahara Sand.  Then we scrunched up the card stock.  Next we opened up the card stock again and ran the Old Olive ink pad over it.  You want the Old Olive to hit the high parts on the card.  You don't want to completely cover it. 

Next we sprayed the card stock with rubbing alcohol.  We scrunched it up again, opened it up and then ran the Always Artichoke ink pad over it.  Try not to cover up too much of the Old Olive.  Then we scrunched it up again and opened it up to add Soft Suede over it.  You want to make sure that you don't cover over all of your previous colors.  Scrunching it after each color addition helps to create new peaks on the card stock for the next ink color to get on it.  The last thing we did was sprayed it with rubbing alcohol and turned it over so the ink side is down and we used the bone folder to smooth out the card stock.  Once it was dried we used it on the background of our card sample.

This is a very fun and simple technique.  I have plans on participating in the next swap and this is going to be the technique I use!  And of course, I will share my creation with you!!

Thank you SO much for stopping by today,
