It's time for another Our Creative Corner mid-week challenge! This challenge is hosted by Julee Tilman, who wanted us to get a little inky with our Verve stamps. The challenge is to give your Verve projects a vintage glow with a technique called Vintage Values. To play along, upload your creation to your blog or gallery. If you upload to SCS, remember to use keyword: OCCC.
************Here are Julee's directions: Vintage Values How-To: Requires 2-3 shades of the same color of ink and a craft sponge. Starting with your lightest shade of ink, use a craft sponge to sweep ink from the outer edges of your cardstock inward as far as you want your glow to touch. Repeat with your next shade of ink, but only sweep about 2/3 as far in (so some of the lighter color still shows in the inner sections). Repeat with the darkest shade of ink (if desired), sweeping with short strokes, only about 1/3 of the way in.
