New technique.

Hello and welcome to and exciting challenge at 52CCT.
I always like learning a new technique. I see so many I want to try but often, the ideas are stowed away and I never get round to trying them.
Rosi has challenged us to try the Eraser technique this week so I actually got on and had a go.

Verdict - I found it simple to do and it gave a very effective result. I hope you'll agree.

Finding the right stamp is the key. I chose these geese and had a little play on some scrap paper.

All you need to do is rub a pencil on some sandpaper to get some graphite dust and then sponge it onto the paper.
Being a lazy sort of person, I used an emery board which was in the same room as me, instead of going looking for sandpaper.

Make a bit of graphite dust by rubbing the pencil on the emery board and the rub gently onto the paper. Then rub away parts of the image to expose the white paper. 

Here is a link to the instructions on the technique and a stunning card:

I really think this is the my favourite card I've made all year. I hope you like it and have a go at this fun technique. 

Thanks for visiting, enjoy your day. x

  7. Thank you Alison, I am very happy that you liked this technique. I was very attracted by this technique when I first saw it and I wanted to try it as soon as possible! I love the way it looks, but as you say, we have to find the right stamp or stencil!
    I love your geese! You made a very good choice and the result perfectly reflects this technique! Great work!!!
    Hugs, Rosi
