Make it Monday #181 - Paper Casting

Good morning friends.  Attempted to play along with the Make it Monday challenge this week where Danielle shows the centuries old technique of paper casting.  I have one tag to show for my efforts, but I will definitely try this again, as I really do love the looks of this technique.  I think my lack of bolder lined stamp images, and impatience contributed to my lack of success.  I ended up using one of my "Fancy Flake" dies for the one that turned out ok...take a look:


Using a stamp versus a die definitely makes the image bolder and easier to see, but after adding ribbon and tags to dress it up, it will still look great on a gift!  Hard to see in this first photo, but I sprayed silver Glimmer Mist  all over the ornament and IRL it really sparkles.  Here's a better shot to see some of the sparkle:


Check out Danielle's great video and beautiful tags all right here .

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Wednesday.  (I get to go see my new granddaughter again today...yeah for me!!!  Really, being a grandma is just the best!)

  6. Terrific tag, Marcia...this is going to look fabulous on a gift at Christmas!...maybe "baby's first Christmas gift...or better yet, maybe you should make a "baby's first Christmas tag" with this technique! It sure is unique!
