A monthly swap I do is requiring the "rubber band technique" this month. This is a completely new one to me -- you wrap rubber bands around a block, ink them up and stamp them to create a background. I used Lavender Lace and Mint Melody inks to create my background panel.
The layout for this card is Sketch Saturday #401. The image is my NBUS (Never Been Used Stuff) for Darnell's NBUS Challenge. The goofy bird, from Bugaboo, is colored in pencils, and there's a lot of fussy-cutting for the out-of-the-box cut.
The card is for these challenges:
Sketch Saturday #401
Catch the Bug -- color Challenge
Simon Says Stamp Monday -- Leap into the Unknown (new technique)
NBUS #6 -- image
Kraftin Kimmie Wonderful Wednesday -- anything goes
