Over for J & C Creations I am combining a bit of thrift with a technique and using a Penny Black stamp of Flying Stars, together with Distress Stains in black soot, picket fence and vintage photo.
Firstly you take a piece of card and some masking tape. Tear off strips of masking tape and put them on the card making sure that you cause ripples, folds and generally mess the tape on the card. After you have filled the card, roll over it with a brayer or rolling pin type product to flatten the masking tape.
Take a piece of glossy cardstock and stamp onto this with versamark and WOW clear embossing powder and heat set. Use dye based inks such as distress inks and go all over the card covering the stamped image. The image should come out from the ink. Once filled buff the cardstock with a piece of kitchen towel. The ink will come off the stamped image.
Take the image and cut around parts of it. In this case I have cut around 2 of the flowers and then matt this onto dark card. The same dark card is used to matt the masking tape background.
So go raid your garage, home decor box and get that masking tape used!
