Bandana Print card



I was wowed by a couple of demonstrations and examples of the "Bandana Print" technique. Most recently, I had seen a video of a demonstration at CHA using Rangers' Inkssentials pen. Well, you can't find that pen, just yet, at any of my local scrapbook or art supply stores. Instead of the Inkssentials pen, I used the Gelly Roll pen by Sakura. I've heard that the Souffle pens are also ideal for this project. I'm going to Archivers this afternoon, and will pick up a couple of white Souffle pens to see if they are better. You can purchase the Gelly Roll pens at most craft stores. I bought mine at Joann's. The stamp I used is by Stampabilities. It was PERFECT for this technique, don't you think? The background stamps are by Stampin Up (True Friend and One of a Kind.) I heat embossed a couple of the small flowers from One of a Kind and used the Boho Blossoms punch. Sentiment stamp is by TAC. Thanks for stopping by!

OOooooo Ethel! This looks fantastic! I love this technique and your card is wonderful!

Great job on it. You've inspired me to get my white jello roll pen out and give this a try!

Great card. I used the gellyroll pen to do this technique on an invitation last year. I found that I had to go over it twice because I was using textured Bazzill paper. I think it woul work easier on smoother paper.
