Hello all, and welcome to another TLC Monday. Today's technique is called the Bandanna Technique (the spelling of Bandanna or Bandana are both acceptable according to Webster's Dictionary) because of the appearance of a workman's bandanna. I first heard about this technique in the August/September issue of Technique Junkies Newsletter.
It's a great technique that utilizes stamped images with additional doodling done with a white opaque pen.
When I started to do my card, I googled "bandanna" to see what patterned were actually used in bandannas and was surprised to find so many variations. That's good for us creative types. BUT the really good news is that you don't have to make a bandanna patterned background. The technique really lies in the opaque white pen that you use to highlight certain aspects of your stamped image. Doodle a little - doodle a lot - it's up to you.
Basically the way to replicate the look is to stamp your image onto colored cardstock using similar ink, or make your own background with any other technique you like and stamp your image using black ink onto your cardstock. From that point you just use your stamped images as your guide as you dot and dash your way around your designs.
