Rubbernecker Release & Blog Stroll

We have another exciting release and Blog Stroll for you today. Rubbernecker has just released a gorgeous silhouette floral set with sentiments, a Teddy Bear Inchie set and a cheesecloth background. You will want to start at the Rubbernecker Blog if you happened to come here first. Stroll through the Design Team’s blogs, check out the awesome sampling of cards they have for you today and of course pick up the key word phrases at each stop for a chance to win the set of your choice! My key phrase today is Cheesecloth Be sure to visit Sherry next for more eye candy and the next clue.

My card today features Flower Silhouettes 468. The flower stamp and foliage were colored with Copic markers and misted with Rubbing Alcohol before putting the rubber to paper. I combined colors so they would blend slightly when misted.

P6230010

The Fern Background is also available from Rubbernecker and one of my favorites. I took a photo of the finished background before the layering so you can see the results. It was created by inking up the background with Adirondack Pigment in Juniper and then sponged with Adirondack Pigment/Terra Cotta. I misted the inked rubber to let the colors meld together before stamping. You won’t want to get it too wet, I use Ranger’s Mini Misters. They are perfect for water, rubbing alcohol, reinkers, perfect pearls……..
