Hello, You Brighten My Day


Hi Stamping Friends,

Rubber Band Technique is something I learnt in my early stage of stamping journey, yet I haven’t played it for many years. I was so inspired and fascinated by Loll’s artworks that I decided to make a card with a similar style.


Card Details


1. Use a previously-made scrap (shown below) and apply Distress Inks to create tone-on-tone effect.


2. Apply Rubber Band Technique with Archival Black Ink on background scrap.


3. Die cut wonky stitched frame (My Favorite Things and Simon Says Stamp, respectively). Die cut text (Hero Arts) and bird (Memory Box).


4. Stamp the text and assemble the card as shown.


I'd like to thank Loll for her wonderful tutorial video and inspirations. I’m so delighted that I made this card. Hope this mixed media CAS card is eye-pleasing to you. Thanks for stopping by.
