Happy New Year to all the snarkers out there! The Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers is back with our first challenge of 2018, T is for Technique. There are SO many stamping/inking/colouring techniques out there, how to narrow the choice? Luckily for me, the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge this month gave me the perfect one: cling wrap. There are a number of different ways to do this, and I used this version from the different links offered on the CAS Mix Up post. I thought it would be fun to see what happened if I used Twinkling H2Os as my watercolour base, and the results are fun! The plastic wrap (as I usually call it) seems to help concentrate the shimmer in areas. I used three colours and here's what I got:
Isn't it fun? I can see this technique becoming a regular habit. I trimmed it to size and turned it into a card:
To keep my crazy cat from disappearing, I left him mostly white and just added some shading. The bright yellow balloon doesn't fade into the background, either. 😉
I highly recommend checking out what my sisters in snark have come up with for this challenge, not to mention that of our current Queen of Snark, Toni! Join us — you have until January 26th to play along!
