About Me

My photo
Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an eclectic kind of crafter delving into many pots. I am just about managing to keep up my Scrapbooking Diary (usually about 6 months behind), plus any cards as required. I have a new found love of Watercolour and Bible Journaling plus recently Faith/Art Journaling too. I've challenged myself to make an art journal page a day for this my 60th year. Previously I've also dabbled in ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Mixed Media, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband, our son has left home now. For exercise I usually play Badminton and go Ballroom and Latin Dancing. I also like walking/Geocaching and sometimes do a bit of Bouncing on my Rebounder (mini trampoline). I have been learning to play the harp for the past 10yrs. I am now officially retired. I am a born again Christian, currently worshiping at my local Vineyard Church.

12 Months Technique Revisited

Not happy with the results of my first attempt at the Rubber Band Embossing Technique from the 12 Months Challenge site, I decided to have another go.

Thought I'd do an A4 piece of card so I could use it for a few projects. Not the best move with respects to the embossing powder going everywhere from such a large surface but the resultant card was good.

Here are a couple of photos having done the embossing in each direction. I used a piece to make the baby card for a swap on my craft group UKPC. So yes I left the inking stage until I need it.

I also had a go with the rubber banded brayer using just inks. I softened the lines with rubbing with my cut and dry foam over the lines before the ink was completely dry. Yes I like this technique.

Beautiful work.

This is just lovely, BJ! And such a good idea to leave the inking until you need to use a piece of the card. The baby card is very pretty - love the wee teddy. Elizabeth xx
