Cardmaking and Papercraft - - 6 Ways With… Pencil Erasers -

Trans­form one of your favourite pho­tos into a Pop Art style card us­ing this fun tech­nique! En­large a photo, then trace the out­line. (Find a tem­plate for this im­age on p87.) Stamp rows of dots across the dif­fer­ent ar­eas us­ing fun colours. The rows should be hor­i­zon­tal and off­set so that the dots sit close to­gether. You can ei­ther mask the shapes us­ing an­other print­out or use pieces of pa­per to mask the area you’re stamp­ing. Go over pen­cil lines with a black marker, add sen­ti­ment and at­tach to base. Who would have thought that pen­cil erasers could be so much fun? But be warned – this minia­ture stamp­ing tech­nique can be se­ri­ously ad­dic­tive! You can use the plain eraser to make dots and spots, or cut a sim­ple or more in­tri­cate de­sign into the rub­ber. Draw the de­sign first with a pen­cil and take care when cut­ting so that the craft knife doesn’t slip. Cut away about 2mm down so that the shape stands out for stamp­ing but also so that you can see where to place the im­age. Shapes can be used in all sorts of way, so do ex­per­i­ment and use your imag­i­na­tion!
