Red Rubber Designs - Paper Cast Heart


Happy Tuesday to you!
Yesterday I played along with the Technique Lovers challenge (TLC582) at Splitcoaststampers.  Sabrina's challenge was to paper cast with toilet paper or paper towel.  I tried both and found that the toilet paper gave me a better result.  


I took 6 pieces of two-ply toilet tissue and placed it over one of the heart stamps in the I Heart You stamp set from Red Rubber Designs then spritzed with water.  This heart has a fabulous design with well-defined lines so I just pressed the wet tissue all around the stamp then gently lifted and placed it in the sun to dry.  When it was dry it looked great both from the front and the back.  I can't wait to play with the technique again!


For my background, I used my go-to technique of dipping mixed media paper repeatedly in distress inks spritzed with water. 

The sentiment I used is also included in the I Heart You set.

Here's a look at this versatile set!  (I used the heart with the loopy border)

  4. Wow, what an impactful card you've made, Angie! Someone will treasure this stunning creation forever!! I have a question (which you've prolly covered in your blog and I've missed it, sorry) about the background. So do you spritz the mixed media paper first and then drop the ink, or drop the ink and then give it a blast with the spritzer? It's just gorgeous and I could experiment, but you've already created the wheel, so I thought I'd ask! darnell dot knauss at g mail. Thank you!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

  11. Oh my gosh! Toilet paper casting. So many 'blasts from the past' techniques are coming around again. I didn't try many the first time. Maybe this time since you've inspired me with this wonderful dimensional heart.

  13. Very cool! I don't know which I like better. The casted heart or that background, both are fabulous and really nifty together. My mom knows about toilet paper casting and she's not even a card maker, but she does sometimes try to make me cards to send to me.
