Paper Embossing with Rubber Stamps
Why not make your own embossed accents.
- rubber stamps or anything sturdy with texture, printmaking items
- paint brush
But you can also use anything with a sturdy surface that has texture, things you would use for printmaking, even bubble wrap.
Take a few tissues from your box and cut about 1 inch larger than your stamp.
Have a little water close by and a paintbrush.
Your stamps should be clean, if they have ink on them give them a scrub.
Lay a piece of tissue on top of your stamp.
Wet your paintbrush with water and paint over tissue. Use the bristles of the brush to push the tissue into all the spaces.
When you pull them off the stamp you will see the design embossed on the paper.
Now you can use your embossed accent on either side.
You can create your own accents for scrapbooking, mixed media compositions, etc.
