My first Challenge for today is from Arty Girlz Challenge No. 47 - "No Patterned Paper". I have used a stamp from Dimension Fourth Ltd, called "Showgirl". She has been coloured in using Sukura Gel Pens, and my "No Patterned Paper" background is a background I have made myself using Moonshadow Inks. This technique used is called the "Clingfilm Technique", and is very easy. All you do is get a normal piece of Copier Paper, spread your chosen colour/s over the whole sheet. Make sure that your paper is quite wet, then take a piece of "Clingfilm" from your kitchen cupboard, and lay it over the wet page. Press it down, and move the Clingfilm around with your fingers, and then just leave to dry with the Clingfilm still on the paper. After a while when the paper is dry remove the Clingfilm, and where you have had the creases in the wrap, is where you will get concentrations of the mica from the Moonshadow Inks. Really very easy!
The card was then finished off with some Ribbons, and lilac Brads.

Hope you enjoyed your vist, and please come back soon! Thank-you.
