"Rockin' and rollin' and whatnot" - a technique challenge

First up, name that movie!

Here's the final - for now - challenge that's currently happening over at the Helping Hudson blog.  It's a technique challenge, the technique being Rock and Roll.

It's a fun and simple technique that is achieved by choosing two colours and first inking your stamp in the lighter one.  Then before stamping, you "rock and roll" (mostly roll!) your stamp around in the darker colour so that just the edges of the stamp get the second colour on them.

Here's what I did with this challenge, a much brighter and funkier challenge card than the previous two...

Can you see what I mean about the graduation of colour on the outside of the dandelion-ish bits?

This retiring stamp set is Good Friend, which has only been around for this last catalogue year.  I went nutty with it when I first got it and love that it's such a versatile set.

In the background you will also notice Polka Dot - a delightful background stamp that is also taking its final bow this month...

So there you have three posts in a very quick row featuring some fantastic challenges from the Helping Hudson blog!

I hope you can join in the challenge fun too!
