Alter It

This week I thought I'd experiment with my paints again. There is a technique at Technique Junkies called smooched cork. I thought I'd try using CI paints instead on the cork. I had purchased a bunch of cork hot pads at IKEA some time ago. I thought I try using the paints on the cork. I stamped the images (all Stampotique) on the pad with Jet Black Archival ink. I used a water pen with the paints to color the images. I used a sponge with sky blue paint to sponge color on the sides and around the edges. The paints worked quite well on the cork and the images really shimmer. Now, I can use the cork mat as a wall hanging or to hold hot pots.

What a cool idea! I love substituting the CI Paints in place of H2O's and Smooch. :-)

Great idea to use the paints on the cork, terrible effect and so "textured"!
