Marbled Paper

Marbled Paper by JudiKins is always an image I have loved because it reminds me of old books, I used to love browsing the old bookstores in Cambridge to find the interesting looking books to add to my bookshelves.
Brenda Weatherill created these cards, the top card is Marbled Paper stamped in black over a coloured background and the bottom card is Marbled Paper embossed in white over several layers of dark blue card.

Intaglio Style Shrink - Arabesque

If you saw our show on Hochanda Tuesday you will have seen how I created these cards with the Arabesque background and white shrink plastic.
I used Stazon Pigment inkpad to stamp the background onto white card and then I tore some pieces of white shrink plastic, heated and then stamped into each one with the Arabesque background.
The photos don't really show the texture that you get but Intaglio means engraved and pushing the design into the hot shrink leaves the design embedded.
