Highlight of my day!

I absolutely loved Paula Whittaker's article in this month's Craft Stamper (issue August 2012). Such a brilliantly simple idea! She has used ordinary highlighter pens & Distress Ink to make fabulous backgrounds. I couldn't wait to try out the technique.

Here's what I made.





I used Inkylicious Satin Silk ArtCard for the highlighter backgrounds, and stamps by Inkylicious and IndigoBlu.

If you haven't yet got your Craft Stamper, you can see a gorgeous bonus project by Paula on the Craft Stamper website, though you'll have to buy the mag to get the instructions for the technique. Well worth it, I reckon! I had a lot of fun doing it.

They all look very effective Lynne, especially like the one with the music which is of course very you.

I've not had Craft Stamper for months so a bit out of touch with all the great techniques it always has.

I loved this article too, Lynne, but haven't had time yet to try it out or even dig out my ancient highlighters!!
I love what you've done with it though, the added background is gorgeous and I love the splatters on the panels. Might have to have a play tonight, it's the right weather for it!!
Hope you have a lovely weekend.

I musr admit that your cards made me think of a mixed media project. But it's amazing to see how you are able to create something stunning with the brilliant use of a fairly "simple" but striking technique:)Love this!XX

These are just beautiful Lynne! I loved Paula's article too and felt very privileged to actually see some of her samples irl when she spent a little time with my CSQ buddies and I in June.

I love the stamps you chose to work with and don't think I could choose a favourite. Glad you enjoyed your play with the technique.

Hugs
