New to me - Paper Casting

Good Friday to ya!
Today I want to share something new  - PAPER CASTING.  Have you tried this technique yet?
Danielle Flanders shared a video for the EASY process for  Make It Monday #181: Paper Casting  at Papertrey Ink earlier this week.
The texture of casting is so cool!
Well, I have played all week with various stamps and dies...and yes, used up an entire role of toilet tissue.

However, a treasure basket filled with goodies to use later is the end result:)

 I'm just giddy with all these lovelies!  

I found, as Danielle did, that making the die cut FIRST and then using the stamp for the CAST, creates the sharpest images. I also cut some Bitty buttons from the left over stacks of TT.  Some of them I spritzed with Tattered Angels Glitter Mist!



 The Rustic Wreath die was so delicate and pliable...tricky to stamp ink on later though. But worth the effort:)

I encourage you to check out the video on the process . Get a roll of tissue and start CASTING:)
 I think these pieces look GREAT on a card. What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by today.
Have a Blessed Weekend!

  5. Try as I might, I could not get a good stamp image on that wreath for this challenge! You had much better success. Love your little basket of casting, all ready for some magic to happen. Nice work!

  9. I have done this same with paper pulp - also very nice to do (you can find them here: http://elliecreahoekje.blogspot.nl/search/label/papierpulp) , and then you can save on toiletpaper, and use that for what it's made for. :) PSSSSS I added a gadget to my site, just as yours : My hope is in the LORD JESUS CHRIST... thanks for the idea to do it this way... Glad I know HIM!
