Saturday's Workout on a Sunday!

Bandana The SaWO challenge this week is the Bandana technique! Well that is definitely a new technique for me ... and if it is for you too ... read on!

Basically you make a collage of black stamped images. I used Versafine ink and my images are all from from the Artemio butterfly collection which are Clear Stamps.

[You see I do read my comments! I am going to include details of all stamped images from now on!]

If you can't find the stamps you like anywhere ... just email me and I will let you know where I got mine!

Anyway ... once you have completed your bandana 2 collage ... you blend different colours of Stazon ink over the top. Leave that to dry and then draw around all your images with a white pen ... this gives the Bandana effect. Take care not to draw on top of your stamped lines if you can help it.

I have cut an aperture in the centre of my design ... the middle bit was then placed inside the card on a yellow matt... I have told you that ... only because I have just learned how to cut apertures with my trimmer ... and I am showing off ... and also because you can't really tell from the photo :0)

Have a good week everyone!
