Hello! I've been away form my stamping space for a couple of days and have been a bit bummed to not find time to do any of the Clean and Simple Card Making homework. I'd watched videos while folding laundry, though, and got to stamp a little bit today.
The Day 8 lesson was on Inking and Stamping techniques. I don't usually use a lot of techniques because of limited time so this was a challenge. Instead of using the ones highlighted in class, I went with a resist technique. It is similar to the crayon resist from your grade school days, but I used clear embossing powder instead of wax crayons.
I stamped right on the watercolor paper and embossed. Then, using the slick craft sheet, I tried the watercolor marker technique that Kristina used to add the color. I kinda like the messy, artsy look to the card even though it is not a clean, crisp design (nor can I get it to flatten!). I really liked using the watercolor markers again and managed to use them again for another card that I'll share soon.
