Group of Seven Using Plastic Wrap

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

This month the Group of Seven Cardmakers did an older technique:
Smooshing with Cling Wrap.

You can find tutorials for this technique here.

I did a few backgrounds using re-inkers for my color and store brand cling wrap.

Here are the four cards that I made from them.

First up, I used a full panel using Stampin' Up! re-inkers, Marina Mist, Fresh Fuschia,
and Gorgeous Grape.  All it needed was a sentiment and a few pieces of confetti.

Next up is from a panel using Shaded Spruce Emerald Envy, Ballet Blue and 
Brilliant Blue re-inkers.  I added a die cut flower colored with blending brushes
and Simon Says ink. 

This was made using the same colors as the card above.

I left off a sentiment with this.  I think it will be used for a Christmas thank you card.

Using the same re-inkers as the previous two cards with a bit more blue,
I think this is my favorite.  It made sweet ornaments.

I used Mixed Media cardstock with a vellum finish and found that it worked
very well for this technique. I wet the paper before I added the re-inkers with a wet
waterbrush, then spritzed to make sure it was really wet for the colors to pool
in the wrinkles of the cling wrap.  It did take a long time to dry.

I hope you check out what the other Group of Cardmakers did. Then go to their blogs
and learn the tips and tricks that they discovered. 

If you try this technique, we'd love to see and hear what you think of this
fun technique.

I'll have to try it this way with re-inkers, Bon. You got incredible results and turned them all into beautiful cards! (I think you are a pro with using the ornament dies and your various snippets this year.) My favorite result is the one you made into a sympathy card. Wow! Hugs, Dolly

I Card Everyone said...

Looks like another fun technique to try, Bonnie! Your results are fantastic! My fave is the first one!
Sadly, I don't have any reinkers besides close to cocoa and ripe avocado - could be yucky, and also tells you how old they are! lol
Off I go to watch the video! Thanks for sharing!
