Blog Candy & Treasure Hunt

Velvateen Greeting_SaK

My card today uses Green & Burgandy Velveteen papers. It was very hard to capture this in a photo.  The back of the velveteen was misted with water.  Then, I inked up the baroque background stamp with Encore Gold ink and left the stamp inked side up on the table.  Place the velveteen on top of the stamp and iron to transfer the ink and emboss the image into the velvet.  I repeated the steps with the burgandy after cutting the layer with Spellbinders curved rectangles set.  Placing an iron over the paper/stamp layer does not hurt your rubber at all.  It also works great on velvet fabric and can be used for home accents or anything that won't get wet as the embossed image will not remain.  Images available from Rubbernecker Stamp Co.

Arrrrr ye Matey's, it's Tuesday and ya know what that means. It’s Treasure Hunt Tuesday at Rubbernecker. Put ye swashbuckling skills to the test and plunder all the treasure that be waitin’ fer ya.  Set sail along with me mates and join us fer the first clue.  In order to claim ye treasure, place the image in yer cart, and then purchase only one other item.
