Playing with Elmer's Silicone Rubber Sealant

Hi everyone,

Quick post for you today.  A few months ago, I bought this Silicone Rubber Sealant by Elmer's at the urge of my friend Angelle (go check her blog here). This stuff allows you to do 3-D embellishments on your card.

First, here's my card using a stamp from Inkadinkado. I love lighthouses; they fascinate me. I stamped it on a piece of Baja Breeze cardstock and added some white with a Prismacolor pencil.

So basically what that silicone allows to do is add curved embellishments on your project.  You start by adding "globs" of this glue underneath your embellishment or fill the inside cavity to the brim kind of like filling a boat with water. The silicone dries hard while retaining its shape. The only drawback is that it takes a least a day to dry. But so worth it!

I also sponged Baja Breeze, Daffodil Delight and White ink on the cardstock to give it a bit of shading as well as some Northern Lights embossing powder (source unknown).  The sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes by Stampin' Up!

Have a nice stampin' day !!!

Moi aussi, j'avais pas réussi a t'envoyer mon commentaire, mais je trouve ça superbe! Du ton de la carte, aux couleurs, a l'effet du jaune dans le ciel, en passant par les brillants et le phare bombé, puis le blanc sur le bleu, si vibrant, j'aime! Tout ça malgré la gastro qu'Arielle, maya et moi on traine depuis 5 jours maintenant et qui continue de nous hanter même en Floride! D'ailleurs c'est pour ça que je t'écris a 4:00 du matin! LOL bref, j'adore ta carte!
