Throughout the day, we were given lots of great tips and ideas to move our business' forward, along with wonderful stamping techniques that I am excited to try out. One that I am going to play with this afternoon is to make custom 'washi tape', so check back to see what I come up with and I'll share the 'how-to'.
To add the bit of pizzazz with this technique is pretty simple. After stamping the image in Staz On, I used a white crayon to draw around the butterfly, a rough outline around the flowers and bird and some highlighting along the ground and bottom of the wagon. Then using a sponge dauber I rubbed on some Daffodil yellow and then some Pool Party. The crayon allowed some white space around the image. I used markers to colour in the wagon, flowers and bird.
I want to play a bit more with some other images and hopefully offer a class around this technique later this Spring.
So the Regional really pulled so many fabulous things together: wonderful people, great tips and neat stamping techniques, free stamps and paper, incredible Wow's from fellow Demos and topped it all off with whipped cream...on cupcakes that is, and chocolate ones at that! Yummy!
