Techniques Class – Fossil Stone

Thursday, November 8, 2012

First the blog candy winner is: Sandi Dailey
Congrats Sandi; please email me your address so I can send out your New Double “D” Bow Maker!

Today’s technique in the Online Techniques class is the Fossil Stone Technique.

Here is the card that is done in the video:

You may have noticed if you purchased my PDF file that the Fossil Stone technique is out of alphabetical order. I missed it and I had someone proof read my files too and they missed it as well. I guess it was meant to be. If you printed your pages single sided no biggie you can move your pages around, if you printed double sided like me then your fossil stone is out of place; sorry.

Anyways this is a beautiful technique with lots of fun results depending on what ink colors you choose to use. In my sample I used the Riding Hood Red and Daffodil Delight ink.

Here is a close up of those beautiful leaves:

I think it makes a big difference to use the packaging paper to do the leaves as they are so life like. They are delicate though as you see in the video I did rip it. How do you get your hands on the packaging paper? Well it is as easy as placing an order on my website for some Stampin’ Up! products. The packaging paper comes in the order. 🙂

Here is the video showing the fossil stone technique:

    First time I’ve seen this technique. Can’t wait to try this one!! Thanks so much. I have not printed my pages off yet so, would it be better to print on only one side instead of both sides ? Didn’t know wheather the album will hold the cards and the extra sheets. Just wondering.
