Throwback Thursday's-Geek Chic

Geek Chic

Well anyways, I have a pretty fun card to show you guys using Geek Chic and I think you will really love the technique. It only takes a few supplies and a few steps and the results are endless. :)

Check it out:

I made a custom background with matching twine! To make the stamped images set apart from the rest a bold contrast and a few embellies!!! Fun huh??? Well I made some easy instructions for you to make this card.

Here are 3 easy step by step instructions on how to get this look:

 Hint: You will want to probably get out your craft mat for this and have some baby wipes handy :) I usually measure out how much twine I will need by wrapping around the card base I will be using and tying a bow. Then I give myself a couple extra inches.
I used Natural Twine from SRM.

Hint: Once you have sprayed all your colors roll the twine around in the excess spray on your mat til the twine is completely covered on all sides. You can either set aside to dry, which may take a bit or carefully take your heat tool and use to help speed up the drying time. Make sure that it is COMPLETELY DRY before using, otherwise you will get color marks all over your creation.
I used Heidi Swapp's Color Shine's in Mustard, Peach, and Primrose.

Hint: It is easier to work in coats. Spray a light coat of each color let dry and then do another until you have reached the desired color shade. It helps to prevent bleeding and blurring of your image. After you remove your screen you can leave as is and make a card or you can do what I did (see above picture of card) and just cut into strips or whatever you like.
I used The Crafter's Workshop 6x6 Mini Star Shower template. If you have never used these before they have a plethora on their website to choose from check it out HERE. I suggest browsing around their website too. (They don't sell directly from their website but you can go to their locator to find the nearest place to buy them) I have a few of them and LOVE them soooo much. You can use them with so many different media's(mists, inks, paints, just to name a few) it's quite addicting.

Ok so here are the supplies you will need to try out this fun technique:

And My card just incase you forgot what the end result looked like:
