Plaid Background Technique, my first try

One of the cool things about Stamp shows or Scrapbooking shows is watching all the vendors reveal their techniques.  Of course watching these are mesmerizing and some how, some way, money that I wasn't planning on spending willingly springs out of my wallet!  That ever happen to you?  Now I'm not lacking for supplies, although, she who dies with the most, wins - I bought a lot from the Stampland booth.  Darlene and William are two wonderful people who are in the process of moving and not traveling with these shows any longer.  They are, however, updating their blog with videos and shopping and links and everything stamp related.  Their site is supposed to be up sometime in October.  My best buddy Becky and I watched Darlene work her magic.  Here is my try:

I used a stamp and die from The Stamps of Life, bicycle2stamp.  First time I made a mask from this wonderful product, Art Masking Tape and once I used it, it went in the stamp packaging for the next time I need it.  Several colors of blue were brushed to get this effect.  Doodling, clear bling that I colored with copics and a touch of ribbon finish this one.

Have a great day and keep on crafting.
