Ink it! Stamp it! Design Team Blog Hop | Theme: Technique

Welcome to the Ink it! Stamp it! Blog Hop. This month we will be sharing projects created using a special crafting technique. The full line up below will guide you through all the projects and we'd love to hear from you on what your favourite technique is.

I have chosen to create a project using the Eclipse technique.

The colours of my project were inspired by this weeks Global Design Project #109 Colour Challenge & the leaf, sequins & die cut components of my card were inspired by this weeks Stamp Ink Paper #121 Tic Tac Toe Challenge.

Here is my card:

Here are a few step by step photos showing how I made my card.

    1. Thanks so much Louise :) I was super excited with how my card turned out and then to be chosen as a SIP winner, made my day.

  9. Hello, Kristen, Wow what a picture tutorial, I get so involved making I forget to take the photos. You have done a brilliant job. I love this technique myself, it makes the cards look as if you have put so much work and time into each card, when really they shape together quite quickly. I love the whole set up of image and colours.

    1. Thanks so much Christine :) I too often think about tutorial photos when I am half way through a project and it is too late. I was happy I remembered when creating this card, as it is such a fun technique that everyone should try.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment. You have made my day :)
