Stamping in Soot

You will need

Glossy Card Stock
Tea Light
Hairspray
Stamps



Hold the glossy card stock over flame and move about - be very careful that you don't set it alight!!!



This is what it will look like when done - be careful not to touch the soot - you'll end up with fingerprints on your work



Stamp in to the soot and then spray with hairspray or Acrylic Sealant to set - clean your stamps!!!

These are 2 atc's I made



Love the effect - now you try it!!!

How do you come up with these techniques, Hilda? I like the fact that you don't need any fancy equipment so will definitely be giving it a go!

Fab idea, love it!
Which ink is the best to use with this??

sam21ski said...

You don't use any ink, just stamp straight into the soot

Being away from crafting for over a month has dulled the brain cells some what!
