Bandanna Technique

It's Evelyn here.....sharing one of my favorite  techniques:  Bandanna from Aug/Sept 2008.   I have all the new Distress Inks and have wanted to use them for something.   This particular card was created with Stormy Sky, Chipped Sapphire, and Pumice Stone.   ( I also tried a piece of glossy cardstock to see how the colors looked, but the Pumice Stone shows up better on the regular cardstock, as is used on this card.)   The blue layers are Bazzill's Bling line, and the flourish stamp is from Stampington.  The sentiment is from Verve stamps.

One note:   I've tried every kind of white pen, often with frustrating results.   However, I've discovered that the best pen for dots is a Galaxy White Marker, which is what I used for this card.   It has a bullet tip, so doesn't do fine lines.  But it does dots very well!
