Like I said, it's probably always noisy around here, but the last few days I've just really been hyperfocused on it, because I wanted to create a video and made numerous attempts. I first made numerous attempts to record the video as I demonstrated and explained the project/technique. I finally gave up and decided that I would just record it, mute out the background noise and then dub the narration over the video. Well, between my noisy clan and Movie Maker changing the location of the narration, not keeping up, etc., I finally just gave up.
Today was the day I had planned on sharing a video tutorial. Hence, Tutorial TUESDAY. As I shared with you a week or so ago, my goal is to be a better blogger and my calendar says that today is a tutorial and darn it! I'm going to post a tutorial. It may not be posted as early on Tuesday as I had originally planned, but it's still technically Tuesday. So earlier today, I recruited my son to help me take some photos and rather than show the making of the card from beginning to end, I'm just focusing on the technique that I used for a couple of the butterflies on the card I shared the other day on THIS post.
The technique is called Kissing and no, not that kind of kissing. ;) (Trust me. You wouldn't want me teaching that...LOL) Anywho...this is one of those techniques that no doubtly came out of someone just playing with their stamps. It's so much fun and such a great way to add a little texture to an otherwise solid plain stamp.
|In this example, I inked the solid butterfly with Sorbet and then kissed it with the scroll butterfly that was inked with Desert Sand. A great way to incorporate a couple of colors on a stamp without getting ink from one ink pad onto another.|
