To Stick or Not to Stick...That is the Question!
The Stampendous team received some unique products for our hop this week with Tombow USA. Nothing overtly cute and crafty and pretty, but all necessary items to make YOUR creations come to life! We received some awesome little Fastener Tabs...think thin hook and loop, for sticking and removing with no added bulk. We received a cool glue pen for adding hints of glitter to your projects. And we received XTreme Putty...a moldable, pliable, tacky product for sticking something on to a wall or other surface, but can easily be removed and reused again. This is the product that I'm featuring for today's post.
By now you know that I'm not the person who's only going to use a product as intended. I have to experiment with what else I could do with it. So...I think. And think. And think some more, until I have that "what-if" moment. You know what I'm referring to. Here's what I came up with...
Here's how the Xtreme Putty comes packaged, in little connecting squares to use as much or as little as you need.
I tore off about 4-5 little squares, and began warming it in my hands, and rolling into a ball.
I used an acrylic block to flatten it into my medallion shape on my non-stick craft mat.
Frantagé Aged Embossing Enamels (Aged Copper in photo)...
I Inked my cling rubber stamp with pigment ink, and pressed it into the molten surface, leaving it in place until cool.
Here are a few that I did using various parts of the Cling Stamps (Time for Love...I used the zipper portion for one, and the heart from the key for another), and the lovely swirl shown before from the Cling Elegant Scroll.
Here's a close-up of all the detail and shine!
Now I have to say, that what I've posted today, is only part of something more involved that I'll be posting later this coming week as we feature our brand new Embossing Powder Techniques from A-Z book by Fran Seiford. We'll be showing these techniques all week, so check out the Stampendous blog for links!
