I’m still trying to comprehend the fact that it’s June 1st!! Nonetheless, it’s time for another Papertrey Ink Senior Design Team Challenge. This month we’re using our Papertrey stamps and a resist technique. I’m not a “technique” stamper by nature so this was definitely a challenge! I decided to use Polka Dot Basics and the Versamark resist technique to create the awning. I started by stamping the solid polka dots in Versamark onto glossy cardstock. Then I brayered over the stamped polka dots with Real Red ink. The Versamark resists the ink and leaves behind “pinkish” dots. The I used the outline polka dots and stamped over the resisted images with Palette Noir ink. I embellished each little dot with an itty bitty rhinestone. The “awning” is popped up on foam tape and the black polka dot ribbon is from American Crafts. I used glossy cardstock for the image panel as well. The strawberry image is from My Punny Valentine and the sentiment from Year-Round Puns. Make sure you check out the awesome challenge creations from the other design team members: Debbie, Amy, Lisa, Heather, and Nichole! Thanks for stopping by today!
