Soot Technique

I have to tell you it was a wonderful weekend hanging out with my upline Nicky Marling. Her class this weekend was sooooo awesome that I just have to share some of her projects this week. I would like to claim that these are my original ideas, but sadly, no :(

Would I make more of them and are they a jumping off point for similar cards and scrap booking----a resounding YES!

I am not a fan of playing with fire. I burnt my fingers when I was a little girl--I learned my lesson--or so I thought! However, this technique left me no choice but to burn my fingers yet again. Sigh!

But look at the results and it is soooo easy to do. Okay Nicky I hope I get the colors right but here goes nothing:

  1. Cut your basic card base in Very Vanilla CS.
  2. Cut the Soft Suede CS by 4 x 3.25" and scrunch lots!
  3. Cut a piece of Pretty in Pink CS by 3 1/8 x 2 1/8".
  4. Cut a piece of Glossy White CS by 2 x 3".
  5. Now take your brayer and with Tempting Turquoise Classic Stampin' Pad bray all over the glossy white paper.
  6. Light a candle, take the colored glossy paper and run it over the flame until the paper is black.
  7. Take any stamp you want and just place the stamp on the blackened card stock in any pattern you want. Just make sure every time you lift off that you clean the stamp before stamping again.
  8. When your done take a matte finish spray (any craft store) to set.
  9. Take your card base,the 'En Francais' background stamp and stamp with Sahara Sand Classic Stampin' Pad. Stamp the card base.
  10. Attach the card with Snail Adhesive and your done.
I really liked how the the Sahara Sand Classic Ink added such a touch of elegance to the card. I found it really pretty. I hope you enjoy this card and I shall see you tomorrow.
