Rubber Band Stamping

First of all welcome to my new follower JANETTE.
I was trawling through you tube and saw this technique which reminded me I used elastic(or laggy bands as we call them lol) bands round a piece of doubled up cardboard a few years ago and would you believe still had it in my bits and bobs jar!!!So fished it out and had a go -I masked off a centre section and used oxide ink pad on the bands instead of pens and didn't spray with the water,I then sponged on a lighter colour.The image is from Inkylicious and the stamped sentiment was a craft mag freebie.I was also inspired by the new "Up to one third" challenge at AAA Cards.

Love the concept of this design. Trendy and fun way to add color to the image as well.

You share with us so many techniques I have never come across before, thank you. Very curious design and a great way of including colour.

So very cool - your compilation of techniques - and brilliant to use the middle third of the panel for your design.

Really amazing design Carol.

You card is fabulous. I haven't done that technique in ages. I will be digging my old rubber bands out to try this again. TFS.

Mia said...

This is stunning, Carol. I wouldn't guess you used elastic bands to create these beautiful stripes. Very inspiring. Hugs, my dear friend.

Leslie Miller said...

This is a cool technique that I haven't done in forever! We used to wrap the rubber bands on our brayers, but your method gives you more control. It's somehow perfect for this image. Very graphic and artsy!
