Drywall




I did these cards a while for the ladies in my local stamp group. Today we went, we stamped and we ate …lol I mixed a little latex paint into the drywall mud so they would be a little more flexible. Then I “buttered” some lightweight matt board with the paste and stamped into the goo for texture. Then I popped it in the oven at the lowest setting 170 ° and left the oven door open a crack. After about 20 minutes they were dry with no cracks. Then I just painted them and brushed them with a black inkpad. The images were colored with chalk and then cut out.

Inka is amazing! I got to hold and admire all of these cards before they found new homes and can vouch they are gorgeous. She stamped several designs into the wet spackle for a varied textured appearance.

My hubby already thinks I'm nuts when I go with him to the hardware store and what will be think now when I want to purchase spackle?

Thanks, Inka, for another great idea and directions too.

btw: I am not sure if I had commented here or not (besides the comment I just posted) so sorry if you get three comments. I know I wanted to comment but it was late last night so not sure if I did or not. I thought not, now I am not sure.

And I am not participating in the blog candy below so wanted to say here that the baby really is beautiful!
