Rubber Band Technique

Yesterday I went to my local, monthly crop and craft day.  I was lacking inspiration of what to do, so I decided to take along the things I needed to try the 'new to me' technique using rubber bands.  I saw the technique used by the DT on the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge HERE, including useful links to video tutorials.  
I made the background using rubber bands and a brayer.  The rubber band pattern was embossed with silver embossing powder on white card, before rubbing over with shades of blue and turquoise Distress Oxide inks.  I made the frame using Memory Box 'Postage Square' and 'Stitched Square' dies, attached the inky background behind the aperture and attached to the card blank using foam tape.  The die cut in the centre is Poppystamp 'Small Tilda Swirl', cut twice and layered.  I added a silver pearl to the centre.  The sentiment is a stamp from the Happy Little Stampers 'Dandelion Wishes' set of stamps, stamped with 'Salty Ocean', one of the Distress Oxide colours I used for the background.  

I am joining in the following challenges:

  3. So glad the technique gave you the inspiration to make this fabulous card Liz. Love the colours on the background and that you stamped the sentiment in one of those colours. The silver rubber band technique is such a beautiful and unique effect. Such a pretty swirl die in the centre too. Thank you for joining in at The CAS Mix Up Challenge with this beautiful card x
