Cling and Scrunch Technique

This card uses a technique from the Technique Junkies newsletter. If you don't get the newsletter, you should definitely consider it. Pat is offering a special at her blog, The Technique Trail that is good until Sunday, September 30. Check it out.

Anyhow, I made the card with Lumiere paint. Gorgeous, shimmery paints. They smell horrid (in case you're sensitive to that kind of thing), but they are so pretty.

The image stamps are from the Artful Inkables line at Starving Artistamps. I stamped in Green Galore craft ink on Wild Wasabi paper (ink and paper from SU!). I used a blender pen and the craft ink to color in the grass a bit. I layered on Buckaroo Blue. The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink. The ribbon is from SU! Click on the card to see the background. The cling and scrunch technique is so pretty. I used glossy card stock, so it pulled a bit of the paper up, which I think I've hidden on the card, but you might see a white spot here and there. I love this look - very watery.
