Bandanna Technique















Today's featured technique on SCS is really an easy one, all you need is a white gel pen.
For the first card I used the retired Pretty Paisley background stamped on Pretty In Pink. Highlighted with white gel pen and pink marker. Anya rock star image was colored in Copic markers, added Dazzling Diamonds to guitar. A Little Somethin' sentiments were embossed in silver.
The red, black and white card was one I had done earlier in the year. I used a glossy white cardstock, stamped random images using black StazOn and then brayered in Real Red before adding my gel pen highlights. You can use just about any stamped image for this technique which is one of the things I like about it.

I saw this technique on SCS and didn't get a chance to try it yet. It looks like a lot of work! Love the way yours turned out. I'll give it a go tomorrow.
