Thanks for the comments here and on facebook about yesterday's card . As promised today's post will be a "photo how to.." to achieve this result. Trust me it is straightforward :-).
You will need:
One unloved tan embossing mat
Stamp of choice and rocker block
Spray bottle of water
Primary elements and the powder binder*
Using the bigger end of the scoop in the Primary Elements kit measure out roughly half a scoop of pigment to a generous scoop of binder and add about 9 drops of water - mix well to a syrupy consistency.
Lightly and evenly spritz a bit of paper with water and leave it to one side whilst you drop paint on mat and spread it out using brayer.
Stamp into "paint" firmly and cover with paper, spritzed side down.
2 quick light but firm passes of brayer and peel away immediately and done!
And finally add a light coat of spray and shine to seal it.
As you can see I road tested this several times hence the different colours in the pics ;-)! Spritzing the paper with water and getting the consistency of the paint right will ensure that the paper peels off easily.However if it does stick ( and a couple of mine did initially) just rinse the mat with water to clean it and start again!!
*The powder binder in the primary elements kit is gum arabic powder which is widely available.
Don't forget to watch Sheena's shows tomorrow on Create and Craft at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Have fun playing :-)
