Young Crafters Unite - Challenge #14

Today I have my card for the new YCU challenge to share with you. Please go check it out on the YCU blog

Here's my card for this challenge:


This month the DT are all using stamps from Neat and Tangled =) Our theme this month is "learning is fun", and the challenge is to use a technique you've learned recently or one of your favorite techniques. I chose to use one of my favorite techniques on this card, which is reverse/mirror stamping. I reverse stamped that adorable little bee image, and added a tiny circle to the cheek of one of them to look like it's blushing =) I made a video about reverse stamping a while back, showing the clear stamp block I use for reverse stamping and how to do the technique. You can check out that video here, if you'd like =)

Now, I'f you haven't checked out this challenge over at the YCU blog, you can use this link to get there:

That is such a great technique! I've often wondered how people stamped the reverse image. Thanks for leading me to your YouTube page so I could subscribe and watch ALL of your videos the rest of the night! (I really will.. hee hee)

Your card is adorable. I can't wait to play with the challenge!
