Elegance with Rubber Bands

Hello dear friends and welcome.

Today' I'm sharing another card using Rubber Band Stamping.

Using Rubber Band Technique, Inlaid Die Cuts, Watercolor and Stamping.

We're having a lot of fun using rubber bands for stamping thanks to 
Julia, who is hosting CAS Mix Up this month.

If you're unsure of this technique, check out the challenge site. 
There are videos that will show how to do it.
Let me warn you, it is addictive!

First I die cut this beautiful flower from a piece of Mixed Media Paper.

I used re-inkers in my pallette with a water brush to color the die cut flower.

While the flower was drying, I put thin rubber bands around a discard wood block,
inked it with Antique Linen Distress Ink and stamped around the outcut. 

When the watercolor was dry, I popped it back in the outcut and 
layered it onto a card.

I had a little glitter dot, a gift from The Foiled Fox with an order,
and I popped it over the center of the flower.

Your card speaks to me of spring in those glorious colours. It's a feast for Vancouver eyes that are so tired of grey and rain. Love the inlaid flower die and the subtle rubber band stamping!

This is very pretty!

Loll said...

Such a beautiful spring card Bonnie. There's nothing happier than a yellow flowers. :) Great idea with inlaying the die-cut. Using the rubber bands on the out-cut before adding your flower is so clever. xx

I got my brayer and made the background. Now I just have to decide what to put with it. Your flower fits nicely inlaid in the panel with the wonderful yellow borders to match, Bonnie.

This is such a great idea, Bonnie! Love the rubber band technique used to create a subtle background without overwhelming the card! I'm also fond of inlays so this is a card I may have to case! Beautiful!

Jill Vickers said...

This so lovely, Bonnie - the subtle inking from the rubber bands adds the perfect amount of interest to the background of your beautiful yellow flower. I love the layered yellow panels as well. So happy that you took some Time Out to play along with us! Jill

Gosh, this is so pretty, Bonnie ... the flowing lines of that lovely bloom contrast beautifully with the sense of energy and randomness in the rubber band stamped background ... fabulous! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

This bright card is an exception beauty Bonnie. Loved how you perfectly dosed the amount of rubber band stamping. That flower especially steals the show, it is AMAZING!! Loving the alternating layers of white and yellow/orange. Great work xx
