Technique Spotlight: Rock N Roll

Happy Saturday to you! LOVE this sketch posted at the Pals Paper Arts blog! I played along and used a fun stamping technique called Rock & Roll!
I also incorporated the color challenge at the Color Dare blog! These great colors included: Crushed Curry, Brilliant Blue, Kraft, and I substituted Old Olive for Kiwi Kiss. These colors are very striking together and masculine too!

Stampin Essentials Tips:

I think the Rock & Roll technique works best with a bold stamp such as the one from the Upsy Daisy set, which I used for my card! Another tip for getting the best results for this technique is to use a light and dark color ink - stamping the lighter color first! Okay, so I first stamped the image in Crushed Curry ink. Then, I rolled (lightly) just the edges of my stamp in Old Olive ink so that the tips of the flowers and edges have a touch of Old Olive! It's like making a circle motion! So fun!!! Then I stamped my sentiment, from the Trendy Trees set (on page 112) in Old Olive ink and added some more Old Olive to the edges of the Whisper White card stock!
