I didn't get time today to create a card so I thought I would share another delightful card and technique from Mike Funke . . . the guest stamper I had on my blog last week. Remember this "Stamp By Your Man" post? The reader response was so supportive of his card making talent, I thought I would share this card, too.
According to Mike, the technique for today's card "incorporates a brass stencil and moulding paste found in the oil
painting section of craft stores. It comes in a jar and is the consistency of
frosting.. Please refrain from eating it – I was tempted! You can also find it
in the brass stencil section called stencil paste. It is available in colors,
but I opted to use white. Position the stencil on your card stock and secure
using removable masking tape. Apply the paste using a small putty knife in a
thin even layer and immediately – and carefully – remove the stencil and clean
with water. Be careful to lift the stencil up carefully without sliding or you
will damage the image. Let the impression dry for about 45 minutes to an hour." What an amazing technique . . . even more fascinating in real life!
Mike also shared the following thank you for the mountain of comments he received on his guest stamper gig:
Mike, it would be a privilege to have you as a member of My Stampin' Pretty Pals! I'll be back to creating and blogging tomorrow for Stampin' Pretty . . . frankly, I can't wait!
