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!
