How did I get all those yummy textural impressions? Glad you asked, because I am dying to share my little arty find with you!
I was in the dollar store to get a couple of neck cushions for our flight, and I always have a peek in the craft section. I was rushing through, but there I spotted it, textured fun foam! I though it would be great, if it worked, and tossed it in the cart.
Today I pulled it out to give it a try. I lightly ran my distress ink across the foam and placed my tag on top and rubbed. I was really pleased with the results! So. I thought I would share. I am going to give it a try with my Gelli plate, too, when I get a chance. I'm not sure if the pattern is deep enough to work with the plate and the paint, but nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?
The sheets are 20 cm x 15 cn (7.8" x 5.9") and there are 2 of each per package. I may try cutting out different shapes and using them as stamps. I will let you see how that looks when I do it.
I got my textured foam sheets at Dollarama. I think they may only be in Canada, but I'm sure this foam must be available in other stores. So if you like the look of this texture, keep your eyes open in the craft or kids section of your local store.
