Hello Friends
   Hope you didn’t party to late last night for the Super Bowl and you are all rested for this week. Today technique is the Straw blowing background. What you need is a straw, re-inker of your choice and glossy card stock #102599. This make me very light headed but someone suggest to use the can of air I try it and for me it was very powerful so I would have to practice a bit more to use the can of air. Here some combination that I try 

  • Pool Party, Crumb Cake, So Saffron (this one was for the fish I use lots of pool party and little of the other)
  • Old Olive, Rose Red, Bashful Blue
  • Pool Party, Not Quite Navy, Regal Rose
  • Wild Wasabi, Regal Rose, So Saffron (card tomorrow on my blog with that one) 
  • Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum. Pretty In Pink 
  • Crumb Cake, Tango Tangerine, So Saffron 
  • Pretty in Pink, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze

I would say play with  colors but don’t judge your combination till you stamp your image. It look not to good till you stamp your image on top of your background. Many of them I wanted to toss in the trash and after I stamp a image it look great. The stamp set that I use for all these card is By the Tide on page 19 in the spring catalog. To stamp on top of the background for a brighter image I would suggest black StazOn but you can use color ink to but it was not be so sharp you can see the one with the shell and Sea Horse I use So Saffron and Soft Sued. Well this is perfect for my Masculine Monday and tomorrow I will have a lovely flower card with this technique. To view video always at www.frenchiestamps.com Have a great week
