Today I am showing you a Distress Crayon Resist Technique! I used the Crafter’s Workshop Doodle Bloom template with the Picket Fence Distress Crayon. You want to pick a template that is large enough to apply the crayon into the spaces – therefore I used the 12×12 template on my card. Apply the crayon into the areas then rub with your finger so the crayon fills in the whole design. Then let it sit for a bit so the crayon dries and won’t smudge.
Once dry go over the design with Distress Ink. I liked that the flower absorbed the ink – but if you wanted it to be completely white, you can go over the flower with a lightly damp cloth and remove the ink.
In this video I show you how easy it is to make note cards using stamps from Rubber Stamp Tapestry! In each set you get a few peg stamps! The package gives you ink colour suggestions and step by step instructions to layer the stamps! In the video I make the card using the Southern Pine Stamp Set.
On the next episode I am showing you how to do two-tone foiling!
One of my favourite products from CHA was the Prima Fibre Arts Loom Kits! You get everything you need to make a Tapestry or 2! The kit includes not only the frame and accessories, but a variety of yarn and embellishments. Each kit contains the same products, but with different colour yarns. Once you use up all of the yarn, you can purchase other yarn and continue using the loom! The great thing is that you can make a wall tapestry in an afternoon!
In the video I show you what you get in the kit; how the loom gets put together; how to start a tapestry; basic weaving; and how to end a tapestry.
Today I am showing you how to add foil to fabric! Thermoweb has an Iron-On Adhesive that you can cut using your dies! I used the Waffle Flower Magical die to cut out a horse! You then place it on your piece of clothing, bumpy side down. Make sure the paper is still on your design. Use a piece of parchment to protect your iron, and iron for at least 30 seconds. Make sure that your steam is off! Remove from heat and let it cool down.
Remove the protective paper and place your foil over the design, coloured side up. Place your parchment back over your design and iron for about 40 seconds. Cool completely before removing foil! You can wash your clothing, but don’t place in the dryer!
