Bandana is here again!

Hello stampers!
Here is Hetty again with a technique from the past.
Didn't we all love the Bandana technique way back in August/September 2008?
I haven't seen it for a long time, so I got out my distress inks and my white gel pen. Especially now with all the new colors in destress inks it is a pleasure to work with these again. The white gel pen is great to use for accents, dots and lines. It gives the card something extra. All images you see are by Firecracker Designs by Pamela. But really any image can be used for this technique. If you don't like spongued backgrounds, if you more of a neat type of person, how about this bandana mandala card? Use the distress inks to color your stamped images with a small sponge or as I do, I love using those fantastix ( a reusable applicator by Tsukineko) and than use the gel pen for accents.

Happy Crafting,
Hetty Sanders
