I used the glossy for faux mother of pearl. I only recently tried this and loved the results, hopeyou do too. This is my very favorite brass template and I wanted to see how it looked on the mother of pearl. As always, thank you so much for looking. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...08995&cat=4646
Oh thanks, Julia! I loooove glossy paper! I have well over a dozen samples in my gallery that use it! I use it for Heated Pearls tech, Polished Stone, and shaving cream techs. too! Here's a hint for those of you who don't have any- you can use an old photo that you don't like. I often swipe my glossy (or photo) with a dark Staz-On color first. Gives the final result a richness and depth. AND, you can even use old glossy SU! customer postcards that have expired! Works great!
Julia, glad you made it back to SCS Cyberspace! I understand withdrawal! I will try to find the time for another one today!
LOVE your tip to use old SU! postcards...I sure hope that last batch didn't actually make it into the recycling bin!

Thanks for the challenge and all the techniques. I keep thinking I am going to try crayon resist, so decided to start small, with a sponge. I am definitely brayer impaired! I did try the resist around the sentiment, but that did not work too well.
I love my glossy paper! I think it has such a finished look. Alas, I am at work reading the challenge and cannot play until tonight. However, this card is from my gallery with the masking technique. Thanks Julia, what fun! I can't wait to play later!
Now, this is outta the box for me. It's Dee Gruenig's rainbow colors that I bought years ago and never use. You put the reinkers on her special sponge and swipe your cardstock. Kinda wild and groofy, man!!!
What if you woke up today
and only had what you
thanked God for yesterday?
What a great challenge to showcase a bunch of different techniques. I'm at work so can't stamp, but was looking through the uploads. I appreciate all the links to the tutorials for the techniques used. I'm all set (at least in my head) to try the crayon resist and ghosting techniques. Thanks to all the experienced stampers helping us beginners.
