Technique School - This month we want you to play teacher and share a favorite process or new experiment. Document your findings with at least one process photo. We can't wait to see your technique tutorials and new ideas! Remember to use stamps or stencils or both!
Well I can't wait to see what my teamies have done! You can check it out here. They are super talented ladies - I for my part have gone for an oldie but a goodie - using fusible film and fibre. I used it to make the flowers in this project....
Here's what I did .... first I gathered my supplies ....
Stamps - this time from paperartsy - any rubber stamps are suitable for this technique and some clear stamps too - Clarity for sure - I have also used imagination crafts stamps with this technique but I would be cautious with other clear stamp varieties! I also have here fusible film, angelina fibres and a bag where I collect cut off waste that can be used in the 'sandwich'. More of that soon. I also have a craft iron which I switch on to heat up.
If you overlay your film on the stamp you want to use and make sure you cut it twice the length of the stamp. You can then fold it over to make the bread of the sandwich.
In between the sandwich add some angelina fibres - not too much but enough to make a filling.
With your stamps lying down on a heat proof mat ink them up with archival ink.
Add the sandwich over the inked stamp .....
Overlay with baking parchment and run over with the craft iron....
On removal of the paper the stamps with film and fibre should look like this.
and peeled off the film and fibre should look like this.
Having fussy cut my flowers I then went on to make my card...
The background is made using distress oxides - a nice contrast to the shimmer of the flowers. I also used a TH stencil in the background too.
A final view!
I hope you have enjoyed my lesson! Can't wait to see what my teamies have been up to!
