Hurrah – Friendly Plastic Success

Hurrah - Friendly Plastic Success

I decided to get back on the horse and have another go with the friendly plastic (I bought a stash of it so I kinda had to!) I tried one of my least favourite stamps with a clear ink pad and left it to go completely cold before peeling it off. It worked, so I tried a few other stamps and here are the results! Has anyone else tried working with friendly plastic? What kind of things do you do with it?

I Found My Blitzer!

After seeing this post http://thefrugalcrafter.wordpress.com/2014/01/22/beautiful-cityscape-i-love-this-stamp/  by the Frugal Crafter and seeing the machine Tim Holtz and Stampin Up are peddling, I thought….I have one of them from when I was a kid, but it’s called a Blitzer. My Mum had saved it in a cupboard and it’s in good nick considering it’s 15-20 years old! I thought it would be perfect for stenciling as I have found it pretty difficult to get a crisp image all over the stencil! You add pens (I used Promarkers) and pump air through it and the ink kinda bursts onto the page. Some pens put splodges and some more find sprays of ink, fab for stencils though so I’m really chuffed!

The second image is just where I have added colour restoration when scanning it in. Interesting to see how the colours change!

I have been experimenting with a new stencil I made using the Silhouette Cameo machine. Here I have used modelling paste through the stencil on backgrounds I created earlier. I like the way it picks up some of the ink 🙂
