TGIF!!!! Happy Friday my friends!! Do you have anything fun planned? Well I have to work tonight and Sunday but I also have another job interview today. It is way closer to home than the other job I got and that I am supposed to start next week, so as long as the hours are right and they don't pay less than I think it will be a good thing.
Today I have an awesome tutorial to share with you that our Delightful Designer, Karen, put together for us using the rub-ons included in our August kit.
Since the rub-on sheet is clear and the tissue safe backing is only a bit cloudy, position your rub-on over your working place to get a general idea of placement.
Cut the image apart from the rest of the rub-on images, making sure to include the backing as well. This way you won't have to worry about any stray parts of other images getting onto your project. Remove the backing and apply the rub-on to the paper. I don't use the stick included in the packaging, rather I use the stylys from my scoreboard. This makes the application more smooth, and doesn't impair the texture of your card stock when applying. After you've rubbed the entire image, you should no longer see any of the image on the transparent portion. Remove this transparency slowly, and lay it back down and continue to rub if there is a portion of the image you've missed.
You should end up with a clean, crisp image on your paper.
These rub-ons can make for wonderful clean and simple cards that are easy for mailing and pack a punch with their stylish design.
Don't forget to play along with our sketch challenge this month, you are playing for your chance to win your choice of our September card or scrapbook kit. :-)
