ODBD November Challenge & OWH Sketch #145

ODBD November Challenge

This month the challenge is to dust off a rarely used tool or technique and use it on your card.

I watched a video tutorial a while ago to learn the straw blowing technique.  It was interesting but didn't try until today.  I used my watercolor ink refills (SU 2012 In-colors).  Every piece of paer turned out differently depending on blowing.  Whew... it was a bit of challenge for me.

To try this technique, you will need a glossy paper, watercolor ink refills, a straw and a Klenex tissue.

This was my first attempt on to a whole sized (8.5" x 11") card stock.  I was ambitious.

Next, I cut a card stock into 4 pieces and it was easier to play with.

 Here is a completed card and three more to go based on the OWH S&S Sketch Challenge #145 for this week.


Thanks for stopping by!

  7. Seongsook, you did a great job on this technique and your cards are stunning. I've seen this technique before but have never tried it. Now you've got me wanting to try. :)

  8. Seongsook, that technique looks like a lot of fun and I like how each background comes out unique on the sets of cards. I also like the white text on the flowers and the circle sentiment. Thanks for sharing how you made the backgrounds for your gorgeous cards!
