Help! I'm tied to the railroad tracks!
Mmm , no, not really.
I just got all distressed out with Beate's tutorial this week. This is incredible. I really didn't believe it was going to be as easy as it looked, but it is sooo easy.
Start with a papier mache box.Cover your stamp with acrylic paint - the Ranger dabbers make this easy, but a foam brush and Delta or something similar would work.
Stamp it on the sides of the box. I used Polka Dot Punches so that you could see what fine detail you can get even with paint.
Paint the lid of the box too and sand the corners. Then, rub brown dye ink into the surface of the box and the sanded areas. When you have the color you like, take a damp cloth and remove the dye ink from the stamped image. You won't believe your eyes! I thought I had totally covered up my little heart, but I guess Celine was right - the heart does go on... :)
I'm so excited about this - I've made a bunch of them I will be selling at the Lone Star Ladies Show on April 17th - are you coming?
Now don't everyone run to the craft store at once.
Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :)
