Bloggers Challenge - Techniques

Welcome to another Friday Bloggers Challenge post. This weeks challenge is all about Techniques. I didn't assign any special technique to the players - they were free to pick one of their favorites to use with this weeks post.

Now if I had to pick just one favorite technique, I'd be in trouble. Working with the Technique Junkies Newsletter has given me so many techniques to choose from, picking just one would be hard. I choose to use the Spectrum Roll technique for my post today. (click to enlarge the photo - as the colors washed out a bit from the technique)
The images are all from Innovative Stamp Creations - Birch Tree Paintings, which is being released on Monday. The Spectrum Ink I used is Pumpkin Patch (SU retired), I did this on Matte Coated card stock from Marco's Paper. Once dry, my images are stamped in Black Archival. The butterflies on the card were stamped, cut out and placed on dimensionals. Since my the Pumpkin panel on my card was larger then the area of my Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes Folder, I embossed the full plate, then moved my card stock slightly and embossed the rest of the panel.

Details:
Stamps - Innovative Stamp Creations
Ink - Pumpkin Patch, Black Archival
Card Stock - Marco's Matte, Black, Pumpkin, Old Olive
Other - Dimensionals, Brayer, Spritz Bottle, Big Shot, Distressed Stripes Cuttlebug Folder

Be sure to stop by the other players blogs to see what they've created- you'll find the link on my sidebar. Thanks for stopping by - have a Happy Easter weekend!
