Bisque Pottery - Technique Challenge at SCS

Hello blogging friends! Today, I have a card to share with you using a new technique, Bisque Pottery. The technique is from the Try A New Technique Challenge - TLC361 - over at Splitcoaststampers. I don't do challenges very often but after I saw a beautiful card by my sweet friends Debbie Seyer I knew I had to try this technique! Click HERE to check out Debbie's card.

Here is the card that I did with the Bisque Pottery technique. This technique is so easy to do and I LOVE the results!! One of my favorite color combos is White & Ivory. Click HERE to check out all of the details about this technique.

Here is a close up of the background paper. I used Old Paper Distress Ink from Ranger to do the technique. Just simply use your brayer and a light brown or grey color (other colors can be used) to ink on the flat side of an embossing folder, place your paper down on the side of the folder without ink and then emboss as usual. I used the New EL-002 Regal (B side) M-Bossabilities Folder from Spellbinders to emboss my paper.

I used the New S4-353 Labels Twenty-Four, S5-086 Bitty Blossoms and S5-085 Mix'd Media Elements die templates from Spellbinders to create all of the die cuts. I stamped a sentiment from CL-02170 Spread Your Wings from JustRite Stampers onto the Simply Smooth White label using Rich Cocoa ink and then inked the inside edges with Old Paper Distress Ink from Ranger. For the bird I used Simply Smooth Ivory and used the same inks as on the label. I used old book pages to create the flower and leaves and then added some color with Copic markers. I added some ribbon with a bow using Satin with Scalloped Edge Ivory from Really Reasonable Ribbon. I also added You're So Fine Glitter Diamond Clear Cool Highlights from The Rubber Cafe to the bird, rose and leaves for a little bit of sparkle.

For a finishing touch I added some Pearl Jellie Dots from The Rubber Cafe for embellishments.

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Now it's time to go clean off my desk and get back to creating--I am trying to finish up CHA projects. Can't wait to share some of the New products with you!! I hope you have a wonderful and creative day!!
