Welcome to another weekly Friday Stamp Off Challenge,
offered by Susan, Buffy and Jackie.
As June speeds past, we are 1 month into the new
2017-18 Stampin' Up! catalog. One of my favorite new
products is Glossy White Cardstock, found on page 194.
So many lovely techniques can be done with
this cardstock. SU sold it years ago, and finally
brought it back, which makes me very happy!
I create many of my Stamp Off challenge posts in advance, given travel and other activities. I had already created this post, before last week's challenge, where Buffy used this technique . I love the fact thatyou can drag an ink pad across Glossy cardstock,
to create kind of a woodgrain look. Unlike Whisper White
cardstock, smears or "mistakes" are more easily corrected
on Glossy cardstock. In the sample above, I dragged
my Memento ink pad across the glossy layer. After it
dried, I added streaks of Wisteria Wonder.
