Well I am sooooo excited to be at ClubScrap Retreat RIGHT NOW!!!
After a bit of brainstorming with my sister, she came up with the fabulous idea to incorporate a Treasure Hunt into this years swap for our ATC recipients. More about that in the next blog entry. But because we were going to incorporate a treasure hunt, I wanted to make my ATC cards to match that treasure hunt theme.
1. I bought a 12x12 piece of 1/8th inch thick plywood at Joann's Fabric and cut it into the 2.5x3.5 pieces. Used a belt sander and sanded down the corners to round them off and to make the edges nice and smooth.
2. I painted each of the wood pieces with gesso paint. Let dry.
3. I used gelatos and spritzed water on the wood along with my trusty finger to rub the gelatos around. The first one blow shows the purple drawn on, after spritzing and rubbing the watered gelatos around, it looks like the 2nd one below:
4. Used rubberstamps and stamped images with black ink, use heat gun to fully dry:
The majority of the materials used in this project are from ClubScrap.
