Technique Tuesday – Masked Rubber Band Technique

At last month’s Technique Tuesday class, I taught the Masked Rubber Bank Technique.   The technique uses some basic supplies – clear block, rubber bands, sponges, and a DIY mask for your cardstock.

Here is the card we made:

How did we do the technique?  Here are the instructions:

Supplies

  • Clear Block
  • Various-Sized Rubber Bands
  • Coordinating Inks (at least 2)
  • Sponge
  • Mask
  • Glue stick or light adhesive
  • Neutral Card Stock

Instructions

  • Create a mask, leaving about a 1”-2” opening.  I use three small pieces of grid paper, taping a top and bottom with an opening in between.
  • Dab a little glue on the back of the card stock.  Sneak card stock under opening.
  • Put rubber bands over clear block – spread them out for best coverage.
  • Ink rubber banded block in darker ink.
  • Stamp block on the unmasked card stock.
  • Take sponge and lightly ink all over unmasked section in the lightest ink color.

You could sponge first and then stamp with the rubber banded clear block.  However, I like how sometimes the ink gets blurry with sponging – it gives a little more depth to the background.
