C025 Faux Polished Stone

There isn’t much too this! It is a bit messy though so cover your work area with scrap paper!
Using Versamark, stamp image 07.221.R page 27 on to white glossy cardstock (below). Emboss in black. Cut close to the image leaving a 1/8” edge.
Dampen your cotton ball with rubbing alcohol.  i purchased this from our local Drug Store.
Add a drop of Vivid Turquoise and Vivid Pink to your dampened cotton ball.
Dab the cotton ball over your cardstock.
You can dab lots or little – just continue dabbing and blending until you achieve the look you want.
The rubbing alcohol will cause the re-inker to blend together and essentially the paper is ‘resisting’ the ink you put on it.
Set aside and wait for the ink to dry before continuing.
Mount on to black cardstock then onto a turquoise card.

First taught this class on November 7, 2001.

M160 Special as you

Known as Wax Paper Resist.

Rose 14.223.H page 139.

Phrase Hero Arts.
Take a piece of Wax Paper slightly larger than your glossy cardstock. Crinkle it up and then smooth it back out.

Sandwich your wax paper between two pieces of Glossy Cardstock, with the glossy sides facing the wax paper, both top and bottom.  Using two pieces of cardstock yields two backgrounds in one step.

Iron over your paper "sandwich" without steam.

Take pieces apart and throw wax paper away.

Brayer over your glossy cardstock with Dye Ink. Cover the entire piece of cardstock.

Wipe over your cardstock with a paper towel. The ink will resist where the wax from the wax paper stuck to the glossy cardstock.

Finish your card!

C023 Watercoloring the MKP way

We had taken our girls to Disneyland in February, 2000.  I had the pleasure of meeting Mary Parker. She invited me and her friends into her house for an afternoon of stamping. It was so much fun! This is her recipe for watercoloring.
Cut two pieces of watercolor paper 4” x 4”.

Paint one panel with streaks of crayola paint using a wider paintbrush.  The one on the left is for my sunflower, the one on the right is for my background. 
For my sunflower, I used leaf green, bright yellow, turquoise and orange. When dry, stamp as much of the sunflower 09154.R page 166 on to the panel.
Highlight some areas with an orange pencil crayon. Pounce a 2 way glue pen in the center of the sunflower. Emboss with Crystal EP.

Paint the other piece with streaks of yellow, orange, mint and purple. This will be my background panel. When dry, over stamp with E.0253 page 171 using brown Vivid ink.

Cut yellow cardstock 5 x 10”. Fold in half. Set aside.

Cut out the sunflower. Sponge the edges with brown ink. Adhere to the bottom of the background panel. Trim edges. Sponge all edges with brown ink. Mount to mint then pumpkin cardstock. Adhere to the center of the card.

From my experience, do not use a no-name brand of paints. Their colors are just not bright enough. I have made many backgrounds using this technique. I have also used regular cardstock to paint on and it works just fine. Thanks again to MKP for showing me this technique!
