Rubbernecker Release and Blog Stroll

EDIT: The stroll is now officially closed. Thanks soooo much to everyone who participated ...the winners will be announced later today on the Rubbernecker Blog! Good Luck!!!!!


Good morning and welcome to the very first Rubbernecker Blog Stroll! Today Rubbernecker Stamps releases their first new images (excluding Kittie Kits) in 10 years. There’s a big difference in the way the images are packaged now. The new releases are sets . . . yes... you heard correctly, sets!

To celebrate this release, we invite you to Blog Stroll along with the Rubbernecker Red-Hot Mommas. The Stroll begins at the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog where you will find all the details on how to win one of the sets being revealed or even possibly the GRAND PRIZE.

If you haven’t started at the Rubbernecker Stamps Blog, you should go there now so you don't miss a thing! In order to win the set revealed on my blog today called Flower Silhouettes, you must leave me a comment. A random number will be drawn on Friday, 12:00 Noon. Here is my phrase clue for the GRAND PRIZE: stamping. To find the next clue, stroll over to Juliana's Blog.



I just love this silhouette stamp from the new Flower Silhouettes set!! I used a fun technique to color this image...I call it tap and smash!! Let me try to explain....using Regal Rose, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss, and Summer Sun ink pads, I tapped the edge of the pad at an angle on the pots working from right to left first using Regal Rose, Kiwi Kiss and then Rose Red. Then I did the same thing going from left to right to create the plaid effect. I smashed the Regal Rose and Summer Sun ink pads on the flowers and the Kiwi Kiss on the leaves. I then repeated the process on another image, cutout two of the flowers to pop with dimensionals and added SEI Mimosa Brads. The designer papers and the flowers are also from SEI's Mimosa collection soon to be carried in the Rubbernecker Store.


The cardstock is Prism and the White is Prism's Simply Smooth White. The May Arts ribbon will be available by the yard at Rubbernecker soon!!

The close up shows the distressing and sponging around the edges of the image, the use of the Itty Bitty background over the sponging, and the shimmer from the embossed SEI dp.

Thanks for visiting and have fun on the stroll...sure glad Sherry named this a stroll because I'm too old and fat to hop...LOL!!!

Beautiful card! I would have never thought to use a technique like that but it looks amazing! Does it smudge up your ink pads at all? I need to try that out.
