Background Stamping: 

In this sample I rolled some clear plastic wrap to form “rosettes,”  (top left)  in the middle sample I crinkled up some clear plastic wrap and pounced it on the paper.  The last example I wrapped a piece of paper towel around a block, inked it then stamped on the paper.   Other items around your house that make for great backgrounds include onion bags, bubble wrap, orange sacks and many other everyday items.  I would love to see or hear about your creative background stampings.tagclub_bckgrdstamptag_bckstamp_ins

Sanding Cardstock:

Sanding cardstock is a great way to add texture or interest to your work.   With CTMH’s white core cardstock, you have great opportunities  to customize your work in several ways.    You can crinkle it then sand.  You can sand just the edges, sand over objects like a key, paperclips or coins, and you can play with directional sanding to bring interest to your work.

Here is the sample from club night.

Here are the stamp sets I’ve used in this example, and many of the other tags that we will be looking at in the upcoming posts:

    Can you believe I had forgotten about using plastic wrap and paper towel? These technique tags are wonderful for jogging the memory and sending your creativity in new directions. Have you ever used an old “brush roller” from the back of your drawer of hair care products? Should be an interesting pattern.
