I’ve been getting ready for my Big Shot club tomorrow and one of the things I’m going to show them are the Textured Plates and the different techniques they can do with them.?? One of the techniques I like to do with the textured plates is to brayer the plate with ink and then run it thru the Big Shot.? I really like this technique done using the plate that looks like wood grain, by brayering the plate first with ink then running it thru the Big Shot you get a very nice wood grain look.? Here is my sample of the wood grain look:
Another thing you can do;?instead of using card stock use the chipboard or the thick cardboard that comes with the 12 X 12 Designer Series Paper; run it thru the Big Shot and then ink using your ink pad directly to the textured images to make them pop.?? This was the technique used on this card sample here:
On this sample the chipboard was first run thru the Big Shot on the Top Note Die, then again using the textured plate.?
On this next sample the card stock was run thru the Big Shot using the Textured plate and then the ink pad was swiped over the top like a stain.
So now break out your Big Shot and the Textured Plates and give these techniques a try.? You will love the results!
Have a Great Day!
