Not just any ole card would do for our college-inspecting star...so I turned to the Splitcoast technique challenge from last week for a little inspiration. This unique background effect was made quite simply by wrapping rubber bands around a block, stamping the block in Versamark, then randomly across the cardstock. Next, I used gold embossing powder and my heat tool to bring out the crisscrossed imagery. Cool, huh? This could be adapted to SO many different styles of stamp sets - but I stuck with the masculine moment and resorted to his school colors of black, red, and white.
