Just Us Girls - Sketch

I made the background of this card using the technique of wrapping rubber bands around a brayer to make the wavy lines. I thought that it mimicked the pattern of the foliage on this Stampin' Up image quite well and  I also decided to emboss the middle section with a Cuttlebug folder with a similar stem pattern.
The rubber band technique is part of the Christmas challenge from Stamp TV.
I seem to have got out of the habit of card making over the Christmas break, I think I'd better try to get into the groove once more!

  2. A great card Chrissie x All your work is great ! I wish I had the energy and motivation to even enter my craft room let alone make a card but I will try soon ( I promise ) x

  3. Chrissie, this card is gorgeous!!! I have to check out that rubber band technique - the results are fabulous!!! WOW! Love the colors you used too! Wonderful take on the sketch! Thanks so much for playing along with Just Us Girls!!!

  4. Fab card - like the embossing - works really well with the stamping on the card - very impressive technique with the brayer.

    Out of the groove? I thought you'd have been making cards all Christmas LOL...
