Use it Tuesday challenge #39

It is the 2th Tuesday of the month, so it is time for another challenge at Use it Tuesday!

The challenge is: Anything goes!  So anything you come up with is ok, it can be an old collection or a technique that you haven't used for a while.

***REMEMBER: All of our challenges call for you to use your hoarded supplies! A challenge requirement is to tell us in your post what you used!***

I chose to use a stamping technique. I have lots of stamps but don't use them that often. For this card I did a resist stamping technique with versamark. I learned this one at an online class by Jennifer McGuire.

A little tutorial how I stamped the glossy paper: I used the Hero Arts Large Lotus Cling stamp and inked it with Versamark. Then I inked a Reflection script stamp by Tim Holtz with walnut stain distress ink and stamped this one on the Large Lotus stamp. Yes that's rigth, you stamp one stamp on another one :-) Then you stamp the Large Lotus stamp on the glossy paper. Dry the glossy paper with a heatgun. When it is completely dry, rub a distress ink pad (I used Victorian Velvet) all over the glossy paper and wipe it quickly off with a paper towel and there it is :-)

I used a white card by Hero Arts and embossed it. On top of that I placed a piece of kraft cardstock and on top of that the stamped piece of glossy paper. I made the sentiment with my Cameo and the buttons and twine came out of my stash.

Please link your creation using Inlinkz by Friday September 21st on the Use it Tuesday blog. Please make sure to mention you are playing along with a Use it Tuesday challenge (a link is great too!) so we know you are participating.
As always, one lucky participant will be randomly chosen to be a featured guest designer in an upcoming challenge!
