Burnished Background on Paperclay




Happy Stamping Saturday from Kathie McGuire! I'm here again with another "twisted" TJ technique. I always seem to have my fingers in Paperclay lately, so here's another Paperclay project with a Technique Junkie technique. I did this technique 2 weeks ago, but I'll explain the details again here. LOVE IT? See my previous post (scroll down a few) to see another project using Paperclay with this same technique!

This is from the Agust/September 2011 newsletter. I gave it a bit of a twist by using the background technique on ©Paperclay and instead of burnishing along the lines of a stamp, I pressed a Cuttlebug embossing folder into the clay and burnished with Distress Inks along the lines the folder created. As a note, I rolled the Paperclay out onto a Teflon crafting sheet to the thickness of a nickel, pushed the folder into the Paperclay, and then baked it in my oven for 15 minuntes at 250 degrees. Then, I applied Ranger's Distress inks using the Burnished Background technique.

Paperclay is so light, that I was able to attach it to my card base with double sided foam mounting tape. The background stamp is from The Rubber Cafe; it was stamped onto Kraft cardstock with Distress Ink.

I hope you enjoy the card and thanks for stopping by today!

Beautiful as usual! I can always tell one of your creations before I see the name!
I was wondering why you did a different paperclay creation in the microwave and this one in the oven. Does the microwave make it puffier? Also, can paperclay be rehydrated if is somewhat dried out?
Thanks and God bless,

Beautiful Kathie. By the way the link on your email to TJ blog has an error on it. But I got there from google's correction.
