So Suzy & Crackerbox Stamps - Gone from Your Side

Hi Everyone,

I want to introduce you to a technique I just learned and totally love it. I saw it on my blogging friend Gundi's blog Papierelle and knew immediately I had to try this! You should try this, too. it is super easy and Gundi has a linky party  - try it, link up you card and you might win a super cute little snowman stamp!

But since this is my So Suzy blog post I used So Suzy stamps for my card. the wonderful stencil you can get in the So Suzy Store. The big butterfly you can find HERE and the little ones HERE.  the sentiment is HERE.

What else do you need?

Sandpaper (I used a block), a pencil, a sponge and an eraser. I like the knead-able rubber eraser - you can form it into any shape.

Use the sandpaper to create graphite dust from your pencil. Adhere your stencil to your card base, so it does not slip and start sponging the graphite dust with your sponge, joust like you would use ink. 

Stamp you stamps over your stenciled background. Use the eraser to erase any parts you would like to be white. Use hairspray or some other fixative to fixate your card, as the pencil has a tendency to smudge.

Go and try the eraser technique - it is so easy!

Easy peasy? For you but I'd have graphite everywhere. Still...I love the effect. It looks amazing juxtaposed next to those gorgeous butterflies.

Die Karte ist soooo schön und hat eine unglaubliche Leichtigkeit. Danke, das Du die Technik ausprobiert hast und an meiner kleinen Challenge teilnimmst. Danke auch, das Du die Technik noch einmal erklärt hast, aber ich hoffe, das mein Blog jetzt auch noch besucht wird ... *zwinker*

Your card is absolutely gorgeous. What a great design.

What a great idea, Cornelia. It would make it easier to do a one layer card when you can erase.

Fabulous tecnique and love that you can rub out the pencil dust.....great idea. Love the monotone colour of your card and the perfect layout for the card X

Was mir an deiner Karte besonders gut gefällt, ist dass du nicht die ganze Fläche der Flügel ausradiert hast - sie sehen aus als wären sie an manchen Stellen durchsichtig und das gibt der Karte diese unheimliche schöne Ausstrahlung und Leichtigkeit!! TOP!!
....wünsch' dir einen schönen Sonntag und Danke für den Tip und den Link!
