A fun technique!

Have you ever tried paper casting? I just discovered it a few weeks ago and couldn't believe how easy and fun it was! It's very addicting. Here is a card I made with it, the purple background is the paper casting technique that I did with a script stamp that I had...
This is the stamp that I used:
Tag: Creative Cafe
Stickers, pearls, rub ons: Melissa Frances
Clip: Making Memories

Ribbon: Offray
Twine: craft supply

Glimmer Mist: Deep Purple
Stamp: Stampin' Up!

Wanna learn how to paper cast?
To see the full instructions, go here to the Label Tulip blog.
Here are a couple more samples.
In other news, I was asked to guest design for Pencil Lines this week! I was so excited, they have a fabulous team and awesome sketches. Here is the sketch for this week:My little one is so in awe of her older sister, can you tell? ha These pics were taken last fall and they've grown up so much since then!
Dream Street papers, rub ons and white chipboard letters
Pink Paislee black Fashion script letters
Melissa Frances pearls

Thanks for stopping by! I'll have more info about my upcoming classes in Massachusetts for National Scrapbooking Day (May 2nd) soon.

Hi Danielle. I loved this technique so much and I've been looking for a project with which to incorporate it. I've made a mothers day card and posted it on my blog. I just wanted to let you know in case you would like to have a sticky beak. Thanks, Kim
