Happy Tuesday!!! I have this fabulous Rock ‘N Roll technique to share with you today!!! It can be used with many different images and it’s super fun!!!
How cool are these flowers with the dark tipped petals?!?!?! It is a super fun and cool technique that you can do with any of your favorite images! Let’s get started!
I started with a Wisteria Wonder card base and layered on a piece of Elegant Eggplant (4″ x 5-1/4″). Next I took a piece of Whisper White (3-3/4″ x 5″) to stamp these beautiful flowers on. Using the Avant Garden Sale-A-Bration Stamp Set, I took the flower and placed it on Block B. You will want to use the smallest block to you can use on your image because otherwise your rock ‘n roll will just ink up the block and not your image if it’s much larger. I inked it up in the light color – Wisteria Wonder Ink and then I took Elegant Eggplant Ink and did the Rock ‘N Roll Technique. Just roll the edges of the images around on the darker color, avoiding the middle of the image.
Check out the video below to really see how this works as I’m not so sure I’m explaining it well! 🙂 Once you have inked it up, stamp it down on the cardstock towards the top and to the left side. I actually stamped it twice to get that lighter and darker shade. Also, then I didn’t have to do this whole thing 3 times. I do find that cleaning the stamp in between is good since you can’t really Rock ‘N Roll exactly the same each time.
After doing the 3 flowers, I stamped the stem and leaves in Cucumber Crush Ink. Some of them are stamped twice for that variation in color too! TIP: Use a mask to cover the bottom portion when you are stamping your flower stems so that they don’t go below the ribbon. Then you can cover up all of the overlaps of the stems with the ribbon! I used the Cucumber Crush Mini Striped Ribbon! I used the greeting from the Avant Garden Stamp Set and stamped it in Elegant Eggplant. Next, I added this to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals! To finish it off, I added little Elegant Eggplant Enamel Shapes.
