I was excited to see the Technique Junkies ATC swap brought back to life by Shelly Schmidt, one of the most talented stampers I've had the pleasure to swap with. I struggled to pick a technique to start with, until I noticed the Layered Goosebumps technique in the listings. I had purchased a bottle of Goosebumps spray a while back, but had not had the opportunity to use it.
The mica powder in the goosebumps spray is scanning as grey splotches, but in real life, these are very textured and shimmery. The apha punches are another thing I don't use as often as I should, but I have to admit that it is often difficult to glue them and place them in a straight line. I also have to admit that in my basement, that backing cardstock that I also used for the letters looked black. Sometimes things don't come out the way you plan...
The rose stamps is from a springtime day set from AMuse Studio. It's one of the few flowers I have that isn't a solid stamp but looks fine just stamped in black. Sometimes that is all you want.
I love to make little things like cards and jewelry, because I love to share them. I love blogging about them because I can share them with even more people. If you see something you really like, send me an
- if it isn't already promised to someone else, I will probably mail it to you.
