June ATC Swap sign up
« on: May 28, 2015, 09:28:00 AM »
Hi guys #>
Here's the sign up for June's swap.
Sign up will be now through Sunday. I will post swappers sometime on Monday.
Your send by date will be June 16th

Technique requirement will be the black magic stamping technique
Heres a good tutorial on it
http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/resources/tutorials/blackmagic/

There's also several good videos available on YouTube.

I think you could maybe use pigment ink or crayons in substitute of the colored pencils if you don't have any?

Any questions, just post them here  ;)

Don't have white ink, but I've got something that should work so... Count me in, Pug.

I would think white embossing powder would work the same wouldn't it?

That's the 'route' I plan to travel, Kathy. And Staples has a deal on colored 'sharpies' that I can use in place of the colored pencils. I have 2 ATCs ready to color once I get the markers--probably tomorrow.

Kathy, I think that would work too. I thought maybe acrylic white paint but I wonder if it would crack once colored over it.

My allergies have been bad the past 2 days and I took an allergy pill last night and couldn't sleep! It makes me feel jittery so I ended up making 4 ATCS and one card with this technique. It's really fun to experiment with.

LeighAnn so glad you are back hosting again!

 Acrylic Paint can also react as a resist ...so probably coloring will take some creative thinking and experimenting.

Please include me in this challenge too.

Is there a different name for the technique when it is done on dark kraft paper?

Sign me up! :D  I have wanted to try this technique so I am so excited!

I did color an image the other day that I made using white EP and alcohol markers....and I cannot say if it's similar to this method as I haven't tried this one, but the one thing with using white EP was that the tip of my alcohol markers would be real light in color after I finished using them on the EP....I haven't gone back to check to see if the tip is back to normal yet (about to go do that), but I was hoping it the EP and alcohol weren't reacting to each other.

Melissa - I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that alcohol ink markers will react with some embossing powders.

Sarah I think I read that too years ago---  I thought I read somewhere that said that alcohol markers will EAT the EP.....but when I saw the Splitcoaster tutorial last week on making an image appear as "chalk" by coloring over white EP, I had forgotten that tidbit---that is until I saw my tips turning pale in color!
