cards, Techniques


I was stamping one of the ornaments from Delightful Decorations a few weeks back and found it came out really strange.  I thought at the time it was my inkpad that desperately needed re-inking.  I really liked the pattern though.  Check it out –

Isn’t it a groovy pattern???  I thought it would make a great tag or something and so I just put it aside to look at later.  I pulled it out again this week and had a closer look.   It was a scrap piece of card that I used and had previously ran some adhesive over the card to stick it down to something.  It was just the glue stick variety adhesive.  I didn’t end up using the card then.  Where I had glued was where the lighter part of the image was.  The adhesive resisted the ink slightly.

I call this my “Adhesive Resist” technique!  LOL  So, do you think it will catch on!!! Maybe I will have to try it again sometime?? I thought it would be a fun thing to show you.

I hope your Christmas preparations are going ok?  Mine are VERY slow going?  I still have presents to wrap, but we put some lights up on our house today.  That was a first!

Happy Christmas to you all,

Jenny x

  1. Dontcha just LOVE it when things appear just like that Jenny???? Too Cool!!!
    Sadly the Galapogas Giant Tortise has more speed than my Chrissy prep at present. I still have a mountain of gifts to finish, cards to doo (that won’t now arrive by Chrissy day) and the list goes on!!!! I think I’ll start in Feb 2012 for Chrissy next year!!! Mwah to you and urs. ooxx


  2. Hi Jenny! I had to laugh at your new technique … and I am not sure if it will catch on. I think perhaps markers to rubber using different colours might be easier and less messy! Keep smiling … and I hope you get on top of Chrissy prep soon. I have just finished my baking for Chrissy … right up to Monday breakfast (when Stace & Jono will be here with Bree). So … I can actually put my feet up this afternoon and maybe even do some last minute blog hopping to say Merry Christmas to my blog friends! Hugs xx
