StazOn Blazing Red, Mustard, Pumpkin, and Jet Black
Tsukineko Sponge Dauber
12” x 12” sheet of navy blue, light orange, and dark
pieces of gold foil sheets
Stamps: Explore (Wordsworth), Compass (Rubber Soul), Two
- Tear your light orange and dark orange cardstock in
uneven strips about 2-3 inches high and 12 inches long.
- Crumple up one sheet of your gold foil sheet and then
smooth it out. Using circular strokes with Tsukineko Sponge
Dauber, apply Blazing Red, Mustard and Pumpkin all over the
gold foil piece. With a sponge dauber, blend the colors
together while they are still wet. You can layer the colors
or add more of one until you get the desired effect.
- Using your scissors cut a wavy strip about 2 inches high
and 12 inches long out of the gold foil.
- Cut two 2 inch by 4 inch rectangles out of your copper
sheet. Cut a 3-inch by 4-inch rectangle out of the copper
sheet as well.
- Using your Blazing Red, Mustard, and Pumpkin, directly
apply small amounts of the ink to the copper rectangles to
“tarnish” them. Take the Jet Black StazOn pad and rub it
along the sides of the rectangles to give them an even more
- After the ink has dried, stamp the “Explore” and “Two
roads…” stamp with the Jet Black on the two smaller
rectangles. Stamp the compass on the larger one.
- On the “Explore” rectangle, punch two holes on either
side of the word. Take three or four strands of fiber and
string them through the rectangle.
- To start to assemble your page, glue your dark orange
strip down first on the upper third of your navy blue paper,
then your light orange strip, and finally your gold foil
- Using a double stick tape, stick the “Explore” rectangle
down on top of the gold foil and wrap the loose fiber ends
around the sides of the navy paper, securing them with tape
on the back of the cardstock.
- Leaving about 1/8th of an inch border, mat the “Compass”
and “Two Roads” rectangles with the light orange cardstock.
- Mat your photos with the inked gold foil and the light
orange cardstock, leaving 1/8th of an inch border for both.
