BlogStar Rhea Weigand is back today with a fun card that will send you rushing down the aisles of your local home improvement store. She sure made our heads spin with the possibilities of this new medium.
Hi there, Rhea
here with an unexpected little something
What do you get when you use your favorite Stampendous image, a little glitter, and DRY WALL TAPE???
Yes, I used Drywall Tape to add texture for the background in this design.
For the image panel I used glossy paper with distress inks. I used Dusty Concord and Victorian Velvet to cover the panel completely. When completely dry, I stamped and embossed the image with Detail Silver
.Now for the Drywall Tape….this isn’t a very sticky tape so I cut my sizes and laid them on my craft mat. I then colored them with alcohol inks. Here I used Eggplant. Next I used Sookwang Sheet double-sided tape cut to the same measurements as the drywall tape. Peel off one side of the sized tape and attach to white card stock. Now peel the top side of the Sookwang and attach your drywall tape. Then cover with ultra fine glitter
brushing off the excess and attach to your card front with your finished image.
On the inside of this card I used the sentiment M129-R Thank Heaven using nesting die cuts for the shapes. Cover the edges of background with ultra fine glitter. For this one I used my tape runner to only do the exposed edges. Finally I punched out a butterfly with some of the left over drywall tape.
Have fun with Drywall tape Try to leave some at the hardware store for the construction workers…LOL
