Out of A Hat Challenge 23

 A very few did take part and made wonderful altered Mousetraps for the challenge last week so Thank You Ladies for joining us. It was a very different challenge but great fun, maybe if you ever have a spare Mousetrap you will have a go.
This week we are looking at Favourite techniques or products now come on we all have those don't we :) I found this really hard as I love so many techniques and use all types of products. However I have always loved the resist stamping technique but confess not to have used it lately. The technique is described beautifully on Sam's Technique Zone blog. There is a raft of techniques on this blog so well worth a visit. It is where I learnt about it. Very quickly, I used glossy card and stamped the swirl with clear ink, once dry I rolled ink with a brayer and then gently rubbed with a damp cloth to reveal the resist stamping. You can see this below. I must admit a couple hit the bin LOL. I then stamped butterflies in black ink to finish. Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Please do look at Florence, Janet and Chrissie to see their lovely projects. Hugs Sandra XXX 
PS Thanks to Sam for her brilliant Technique Zone
