Week #14 Blogger's Challenge


Here is this week's Blogger's Challenge card...we were to use our Spectrum rainbow pads. It's funny. I enjoy using them, but rarely pull them out any more. There are all kinds of fun techniques to do with them. This was is a basic Resist technique. I stamped the background Tres Chic with Versamark on Glossy paper (I like using Glossy paper the best because I think you get a more vibrant look with the Spectrum rainbow pads), then used Stampin' Up's Celebration Spectrum pad with my brayer over it. The Versamark resists the ink of the Spectrum pad and you get this look. Very simple and fun.

Check out the rest of the Blogger Challenge team to see how they've used their rainbow Spectrum pads this week!
