Today is Day 2 of JustRite's Newest Releases! I have a couple of cards using a beautiful new set called Vintage Rose Medallions. I used a fun technique that is certainly not new, but I hadn't used it for a long time. I've included a tutorial below on how I used this "Direct to Rubber" technique. My first card is a Mother's Day Card.....because May is right around the corner!
I made my own textured "cardboard" by running kraft cardstock through a paper crimper and giving it a light coating of white paint. The "cardboard" and main image were cut out using Spellbinder's Nested Oval's Die.
My second card uses the same technique but with a darker green for the leaves. It is an imperfect technique, the lines are a bit blurred, and the inks run into each other....but I love the look of it!
The main image was cut out using Spellbinder's Ribbon Tag Trio. I ran satin ribbon through it and added a few pearls.
Here is the set I used in its entirety.
The other set being debuted today is Elegant Fronds. I do have a project using this gorgeous background stamp, but it will be shown at a later date!
Here is the mini tutorial on how I created the multicolored image above. You will need water based markers and of course your stamps! I stamped my entire image with this pale orange color. You could just use a marker to color it in, but this was a bit faster and gives all over coverage.
Take your markers and color in specific areas that you want to color.
The ink will stay wet for a bit, but to ensure even stamping, I do give it a "huff" before I applied it to paper.
And that's it! Just stamp it on your paper. The colors will blend a bit...but that is the beauty of this technique!
The other designers are gonna knock your socks off with their projects! Be sure to pay them a visit!
Have a Great Wednesday!!!
