Happy New Year!!!
Thank you everyone for your good wishes over the passed few days.
I hope you are all enjoying the festivities and having fun.
Today I would like to share two cards that I made with embellishments made from air drying clay.
For these two cards I wanted to keep the style of card very simple.
I rolled out a small amount of clay.
I inked up my stamp with VersaMark ink and stamped into the clay.
Tip: Deeply etched stamps give better results.
I used scissors to cut out the section of the stamped clay I wanted and left it over night to dry.
Tip: To smooth edges, dip your fingers in a little water and just gently rub and smooth out the surface of the sides. You need to do this immediately after you cut the piece out or before it starts to dry.
I painted the piece with black craft paint and left it to dry.
I then rubbed over the whole piece with gold relief paste. Gold wax should work equally as well.
I made up the cards as seen, attaching the clay pieces to my card using hot glue.
Due to the weight of the clay embellishment, it is best to use 300 – 350 gram card stock for your base card.
Chocolate Baroque Stamp used: Klimt Panel.
Thank you for looking.
Have a wonderfully crafty 2015!
