    Technique Challenge 65 (8/17/10) Reverse Faux Letterpress

    Technique Challenge 65 (8/17/10) Reverse Faux Letterpress


    With the new letterpress plates on hold with SU!, I think this is a great time to try a similar technique. Trina reminded me of this with her awesome Christmas Swap Creation here:

    Trina's Lovely Ornaments

    So I had to try it for myself....

    The ink is applied to the texturz plate and instead of going out onto the embossed portion of the plate stays on the flat unembossed portion of the cardstock. (My reason for calling it Reverse.) But I think it does a good job of showing a similar look to the new letterpress dies we will be able to order from SU! next month. (Faux Letterpress)

    I took a couple of pictures just to illustrate though they are likely not needed:

    Step A:
    Ink the texturz plate and place your cardstock on the plate.

    Step B:
    Cover the plate with typing paper and run through the Big Shot as usual.

    Step C:
    Remove your cardstock and admire your work.

    Step D:
    Finish your card.

    You can work on this challenge whenever you want. There is no time limit. Please post your work in the Technique challenge gallery with the phrase Tech65 in the keywords and post your link here, so we can all see it.

    I hope you will find time to play and Have fun!

    Since many of us are SU! enthusiasts, I’m going to give you very early warnings about upcoming challenges, so that you can order if needed. You will need glossy cardstock, the dot border punch, pastels, and embossing folder and a candle soon, but not all in the same week.

    I love the step by step pictures. I would have totally forgotten to cover it with typing paper. Thanks for saving me a big mess. Your card is really pretty!
