I was shocked to see 'Bud Basics' on the Retirement List.... the only good news is that it's 25% off while stocks last. What a bargain - only $25.46!!
It's one of my favourite and most versatile stamp sets. It's a 2-step stamp set, so you can do so much with it! Like these:
Bud Basics Bling
Pink Buds (I used the co-ordinating Basics outline Jumbo wheel on this one)
Wet Paper Watercolouring
Big Buckle card
and then this card I'm showing you today is the Crayon Resist technique.
I did this card at a workshop for Kerry, who is now my lovely downline Kerry. Hi Kez!
Just stamp on gloss card, then use a white crayon (raid the kid's crayon box...what do they need white crayons for anyway??) to highlight parts of the images. Then sponge your inks over the top. Voila!
The sentiment is just some layering of ribbons and punches.
