AIR16 Nighty Night Challenge

I made these backgrounds and the card in the next post for my AIR16 Nighty-Night Challenge (Pillow-Top Background Technique). I learned this technique from Gina K.’s video tutorial on Stamp TV. Here’s a link to the challenge thread: There are details and links in the Discussion Thread. Also there are lots of tips from participants.

Pillow-Top Technique
Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80-lb. Cardstock
Memories Ink, Soft Sage (For Hero Arts Shadow Stamps)

The first five of these were done with a piece of plastic marked at 5/8” to guide me while making the stripes. I found that it was best to tap the inked ink applicator along the edge of the plastic and then move it onto the cardstock. For the last two cards, I used an EK Success glass mat with grid lines to help me keep track of the lines, and I made them ½” apart. I also used soft colors and used a lighter touch. I like the way they turned out best.

In order:
Distress Inks: Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Barn Red, Mustard Seed, Shaded Lilac
Memories Inks: Soft Shade, Soft Rose

Wow! You are a pillow top master! These turned out really nice and puffy looking. I like the bright ones and the softer ones.

Wow, you really went to town with this technique! I think you will be able to find uses for all of them. Cindi is right, these do look poofy.

Your pillow tops have more white in the middle then mine did. You must have a light touch. TFS
