Bandana Technique Challenge

Click on images to enlarge

Both the ATC and Gothic Arch are for Rainbow Lady's Challenge this week. Cynthia has a guest designer setting the challenge again this week, Christine from Belgium and she chose the bandana technique. This is something I've had on my list to try for a while and I must say I thoroughly enjoyed it - which is why I'm showing you two things for this challenge. Both backgrounds have been created using just one shade of alcohol ink and then overstamping but instead of stamping the main images in black, I've done them using versafine imperial purple. My white gel pen hasn't been used in a while and decided to sulk about it, so I've used a white sakura souffle pen for creating the bandana effect. All the stamps used are from the elusive images filigree fusion set. If you would like to learn more about the bandana technique, Cynthia has some useful links on the blog.
Thank you Cynthia and Christine for another great challenge and thank you for stopping by today.
