Paper Craft Planet's Super Novas have partnered up with Stampendous to bring you Fran*tage Fridays! For several weeks we'll be showing you a technique each Friday using the new Fran*tage line of stamps from Stampendous. The best part is..... You can win the stamps shown in our demonstrations just by leaving a comment on the Paper Craft Planet Blog!
Alcohol Inks (I used Oregano and Red Pepper)
Alcohol Metallic Mixative, optional (Gold)
Alcohol Blending Solution (Copic Colorless Blender Re-Inker also works)
Alcohol Ink Applicator and Felt
Cut metal sheet to size you need for project.
Squeeze a few drops of one of the alcohol inks onto the metal.
With the felt attached to the applicator tool, begin tamping over the inked area until the colors are distributed on the sheet; let dry. Feel free to twist the applicator a bit when tamping to create different shapes.
Repeat Step 3 with the second color.
STEP 5 (optional):
On the same felt, apply some of the Gold Metallic Mixative (outlined in gold) then add a drop of the blending solution next to it (see blue circle). Apply randomly onto the metal sheet. This will add a bit of shimmer and the solution will help blend and distribute the color. The blending solution is also used to lighten color.
Cut sheet with a die cutter.
Emboss with an embossing folder.
With a sanding file, sand the raised areas.
Be sure to visit Paper Craft Planet to see the previous Fran*tage Fridays and don't forget to leave your comments on the PCP Blog for a chance to win the set of stamps I used today!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a wonderful and safe weekend!
