I love the Rock 'n' Roll technique -- especially with leaf cards. It's pretty simple in theory, but sometimes takes a few tries to get a feel for it. Once you get it down, though, it adds a lot to a card with only a little extra effort on your part.
If you get ink on your block you may want to wipe it off before you stamp, just to make sure you don't mess up your project. Also, be sure to clean your stamp before re-inking. Otherwise you'll leave dark ink on your light pad.
One of the fun things about this technique is that each one can turn out different. To me, it makes the leaves look even more natural. After all, they don't all turn at the same time in nature.
Here's another card I made with the Rock 'n' Roll technique. I did the sentiment as well as the leaves on this one. The stamps on both cards are from Colorful Seasons.
We are making the top card in this month's class, along with two other cards. There is one session left, on Tuesday night. If you are local and would like to come, let me know. I can be reached at the email address in the header or message me on my facebook page.
Have you used this technique before? If so, leave a comment to let me know which set you did it with. Or maybe share your favorite technique. I always like hearing about a new one. And now on to the next blog in the hop, Sue Stapp, who will have another technique for you. Happy Stampin' and thanks for dropping by.
