Rubber Cement-Papertrey Ink

The make it Monday Challenge at Papertrey Ink is to do a resist technique using rubber cement.  I had just been shopping and saw a number of brightly coloured tops that gave me the idea to try the technique using Papertrey Ink’s sweater die. I think it turned out rather well. I found it rather odd that I had no trouble with removing good old Elmer’s rubber cement from the from the finished card, while I have struggled in the past in getting expensive artist grade masking fluid to come off with out pilling the paper.  Who knew?


Supplies:  Papertrey Ink Sweater die, Elmer’s Rubber Cement, Loew Cornell watercolours,  Distress watercolour paper, Hero Arts card base,  MME Chalkboard patterned paper, Scor tape
