Technique Tuesday - Stippling

This 6 x 6 layout was created by Heather Wartenburg, Close To My Heart Independent Consultant. I really like how she showed a few different ways to use this technique. Here are her directions:

  1. To draw, engrave, or paint in dots or short strokes.
  2. To apply ink to paper using a stippling brush.
Load stippling brush with ink and gently pounce it vertically on the paper to give a soft muted effect. Continue to load the brush and pounce, concentrating more in some areas than others.

Here is the card I made using this technique. I used bubblegum ink for stippling the edges of the main image and the dimensional element with the sentiment "for you". In addition, I used the stamp set Rustic Flowers and black, bubblegum, sunflower and white daisy cardstock. The background paper is a retired black pattern paper from CTMH. All products are CTMH, except for the ribbon and the silk flower I used on the main stamped image. My sister gave me a bunch of these flowers and I wanted to show her I finally used one. Thanks, Connie!

Here is a close up of the main image and the dimensional element with the stippling technique.

Now, it is your turn!
