Hello stampers,
     Why are there snow flurries outside? Seriously, at least they aren't sticking! I've only lived here for almost 5 years & I think this is the latest winter we've had. I'm so over this, can the person who keeps poking Mother Nature please stop, I would really like to see spring!
     Today's BSU challenge is a technique challenge using rubber bands with the acrylic blocks. I absolutely had NO idea what I was going to do for this challenge but I finally came up with something a day late. I decided to only do half of the card for the technique instead of a full layer. How do you do this technique, you ask? It's quite simple you wrap 1-2 rubber bands (thick or thin or both) around any size block you want to use, in my case I used the H block since I could only find 1 rubber band. You ink the rubber band up either with a pad (easiest) or marker & I spritzed mine with a little water & that's it. Easy, right? So the way I did my card is I masked about an inch on either side of the Whisper White Card Stock, took my rubber-banded acrylic block & 1 at a time used Soft Sky, Island Indigo & Early Espresso Inks. Once I was happy with that I took a sponged some Soft Sky Ink to fill it in a bit more. I then added the sentiments from the Dragonfly Dreams Stamp Set, before adhering the Island Indigo dragonfly which I die cut using the Big Shot & the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits. I adhered this layer to an Island Indigo Card Stock base, then added the 3 Rhinestone Jewels to the dragonfly to finish it off.
     Don't forget to head on over to Carol's blog HERE and then to Stace's blog HERE. To see what both did for this week's challenge. I'm sure both will be fantastic. Hope you try this challenge out too! We have a new Facebook group if you want to join us and show us what you came up with HERE.
