Make & Take Friday 28th October

This is the card we are making this weekend for our Make & Take.
The background is made by sticking masking tape on to a piece of card overlapping it each time, then rub over with shoe polish which picks up more at the edges of the tape.
Come along on Sunday if you would like to make this card.

Make & Take Friday 28th October

For our Make & Take tomorrow and Sunday, 
we shall be usingmasking tape and shoe polish.
I will upload a card that I make later.

Foil Technique

I have just been playing with a silver foil technique that I saw whilst browsing the web, using kitchen foil.
Take a 30cm x 30cm piece of foil and scrunch it into a ball, be careful as you need to undo it again.

Now flatten it out so it keeps all the creases, then roll over it with a brayer.

 Now dab 2 or 3 colours of alcohol ink all over

Now dab a Vesamark ink pad all over(I found that the colour came on to my Versamark pad so I made my own using Glycerin on to a piece of "Cut n' Dry" pad, works just as well as a  Versamark pad)

 Then cover with embossing powder and heat.

Here are 3 samples that I have made.
the first on the left has been embossed using clear ep the centre has been embossed with Kaleidoscope ep and the last one on the right is using a clear glitter ep, although the glitter doesn't show uo in the photo but they do look lovely.

Make & Take Friday 21st Oct

Using a brass rubbing effect with a wax candle on to the back of the folder then rub over with the Distress Stain and then wipe with a baby wipe, then heat with a heat gun this will dry it off and also makes the wax disappear into the card ready for stamping.
Come along on Sunday if you would like to try it.
