Pencil Eraser Stamping
I am always looking for something fun to stamp with.
I don’t buy tons of stamps because although I like stamping very much, I love so many other ways to make cards.
It just doesn’t seem frugal to buy a lot of stamps.
So usually I just buy ones that seem multipurpose.
That being said, I also love to stamp with found items.
Have you seen what you can stamp with cut potatoes? the bottom of a celery bunch? soda bottle bottoms?
I mean, how cool is that…to stamp with something found?
What about back-to-school items? I mean, I don’t know about you, but school supplies are just so much….
…I don’t know, fun, delight? Unused potential.
That notebook full of unmarred paper.
Freshly sharpened pencils, a clean eraser.
Let’s go with that. A clean unused eraser. What can we make with that? Pencil eraser stamping?
How about some fun and bright cards!
Let’s get started.
You’ll need a pencil or two, white cardstock, a mask ( just a shaped piece of cardstock) and some ink.
Lay your mask on the cardstock. You might want to use a tacky adhesive to keep it in place.
Simply dip your eraser tip into the ink, then dab onto the paper. I dabbed the fresh color around the mask, then dabbed a couple more times to get the lighter looks.
Let your first color dry, then change color and dab again. Use as many colors as you want.
I loved the bright colors on this card. So I used some fun snow people stamps, the look reminds me of a snow globe.
A heart shape makes a fun card. Add some valentine colors, and make a fresh new look to a friendship card.
Want to highlight a busy stamp? The more plain background of the circle allows this balloon stamp with it’s many lines to be seen, but you still have a bright and colorful card.
Couldn’t you see this being used for an elegant style? I love love this look.
It reminds me of Bokah in photography – beautiful for this pretty flower and butterfly card.
You know you can’t wait to try this look! I would love to see your cards, link me up in the comments.
