Wacky Wednesday



Good morning everyone...it's Wednesday and you know what that means...it's time for another Rubbernecker Wacky Wednesday!!! The hostess this week is Shelly and her challenge is for us to use our favorite technique. It sounds pretty simple and straight forward but I have a real problem with this challnege...I have sooo many favorite techniques!!! I finally narrowed it down to coloring, masking, and paper tole. Sorry, Shelly, I couldn't use just one!!!

The winner of this week’s challenge will receive a Discount Coupon good for 40% off their entire Rubbernecker order. They will also get to take advantage of all other specials and discounts on the Rubbernecker Stamps home page




I used several stamps on this...four bird stamps, a tree stamp, birdhouse, and sentiment....all from Rubbernecker Stamps.

The images were all stamped on Simply Smooth White cardstock by Prism and colored with copics. I then stamped all the images on Eclipse masking tape, cut out the images, covered the images that I just colored, and sponged on the clouds. You can find Cindy Motherway's cloud tutorial here.


Each of the birds and the birdhouse were stamped two more times on scrap pieces of white, colored with copics, cutout, and attached over the colored images on the cardstock with dimensionals.

The sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, cutout with Nestabilities, and attached with dimensionals.

The background cardstock colors are Prism Suede Brown Dark and SU Mellow Moss.

Please visit the other Rubbernecker Red-Hot Mommas blogs to check out their favorite techniques and for lots of inspiration!!!

Joan, this is over the top. Believe it or not I held this set in my hands last night as I haven't used any of older RN since we got our new ones. I would have laughed my butt off if I had used it. I love your colors and your sky is fabulous.
