Sock Monkey-Rubber Thwamping Technique

One of the techniques I taught at this week’s Technique Tuesday class was called Rubber Thwamping.  Interesting name…very fun and unusual technique.  Here is the card we made using Sock Monkey/Sock Monkey Accessories plus Teeny Tiny Wishes:


I love using household items in my stamping – and this technique fits the bill! 

For this technique, you will need:

  • Plastic or laytex gloves (if you don’t have these on hand, you can also use plastic sandwich bags)
  • Dry goods item like pasta, rice, or beans
  • Inkpad(s) and Card Stock

Put the dry goods into a glove or plastic bag.  Make sure the air is out of it.   Ink up the glove or bag in one inkpad and then pounce all over the card stock!  It really is that easy.  It may be best to have one bag per color, but I did find that with the plastic bags, it was very easy to clean off the excess ink.   At my event, I did use the laytex gloves – made it seem a little bit "ghoulish"!

Different dry goods leave different marks.  I inked Elegant Eggplant with rotini pasta – and inked Pumpkin Pie with white rice.  I made lots of fun samples too! 

Thanks to Pat Huntoon and all the TJers for this fabulous technique!
