Hello my blog friends. So glad you could visit me today. Today's card is for the Technique Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. The challenge was to make a card using only supplies and techniques that were available in the early days of stamping. There were no embossing folders, die cuts, pearls or many other "must have" things of today. The stamps I used are from the SU set Friendship Rose dated 1998. When I first started stamping (mid '90's) I used LePlume ll markers and that's what I used on this card. Now I like using Bic Mark It markers....I'm too cheap to buy Copics. I used my circle cutting system from Creative Memories to cut the black circle frame. I've had that system since the '90's. We did have glitter glue, not Stickles, back then so I used a little in the centers of the small flowers. I'm very pleased with the end result.
Thanks for stopping by, come back soon. As always, I love to hear from you with comments and/or questions. Have a great day.
Supplies: Black & white cardstock; Friendship Rose stamp set; black dye ink; LePlume ll markers; Creative Memories circle cutting system; glitter glue
