It's my turn at Catch-The-Bug to show you a tutorial.. Now, I saw this technique a month or so ago someplace, I thought I book marked the site but for the life of me can't find it. I have never tried this before.... Yep, first time out of the gate I am make a tutorial so fingers crossed all goes well... I am going to show you how to make your own designer paper...
What you will need... A brayer, rubber bands, Versamark, embossing powder, heat gun and a piece of cardstock. You will notice a dryer sheet in the photo, I don't own one of the little bag things that you rub over your cardstock so that your embossing powder doesn't stick to it-you know what I am talking about! I thought a dryer sheet might do the same thing; you know-get rid of static. DO NOT DO THIS! It made it worse.
First put you rubber bands on your brayer like so-note to self... next time buy smaller rubber bands. Ink up your brayer-very important to just go in one direction when do in this, not back and forth, if you go back and forth you will move the rubber bands. Now Ink up your cardstock with the brayer- I had to do this twice. Add your embossing powder and heat dry.
This is what it looks like. After it completely drys do again with your next color.
I used red! Assemble your card.
This is what it looks like! Easy peasy. I am using these sweet little penguins found here at Bug-A-Boo Stamps. I can't wait to see what you make, if you use this tutorial leave me a comment with a link to you card so I can see it. I made this for the Forever Friends Challenge-Christmas is Coming.
