Seeing I was playing with the rubber cement technique to create my ATC's in my previous post, I thought it might be fun to do a tutorial for everyone on this technique. As you can see by my card I have used the rubber cement to create a particular pattern of lines. You can if you wish just drizzle the rubber cement randomly over your card which will give you a completely different look again. Experiment and see what look you like the best.
What you need:
2 to 3 colors of dye ink
White Gloss Card
Adhesive Remover (Optional)
1. Apply the rubber cement to your gloss card as desired. This can be done in lines, squiggles, dots or whatever pattern you wish. Allow to dry.
NB: My rubber cement comes in a tube so I can just squeeze it on but you can also get rubber cement in a jar. If your rubber cement comes in a jar use the brush that comes with the rubber cement to apply it.
2. When dry use your brayer your lightest color ink
over your card and the rubber cement.
3. Apply the rubber cement to your card again this time over the brayered areas of your card. Remember you can do any pattern you wish. Allow to dry.
4. When dry, brayer your second color over your card as you did in step 2.
5. If desired apply a third lot of rubber cement and ink on your card.
I have only applied 2 layers of rubber cement and ink to my card it just depends on the look you want.
6. Once you have finished apply all the rubber cement and ink to your card and it is dry, you need to remove the dried rubber cement from your card. To do this you can either use a adhesive eraser or you can use your finger to rub the adhesive off.
7. Use your rubber cement piece to create your card as desired.
