Welcome to my NEW BLOG!

For many years my projects could be found at my previous blog - www.fatcatcreations.blogspot.com. Since my business has evolved and is now known as Cindi McGee - Behind These Eyes™ instead of Cindi Bisson - Fat Cat Creations - I thought this was the perfect time to launch a new blog. Since I've been on this creative journey for over 16 years - I have a LOT of project links out there in cyberworld! If you are looking for a particular project you have found on Pinterest, Facebook, FaveCrafts, HomeTalk, Twitter, etc. and the link is not working for you, please feel free to email me at cdjb11@yahoo.com and I'll be sure to get you the new link to the instructions. Have a creative day and remember to DARE TO BE DIFFERENT!

Soot Background Technique


Soot backgrounds are perfect for a dusky sky background on your Halloween cards or scrapbook layouts. They also make for an unusual backdrop for any stamped image.
Materials:
  • White glossy card stock
  • Candle
  • Rubber stamps
  • Dye based ink pad
  • Paper towels/tissues
Instructions:
  1. Cut a piece of glossy white card stock to desired size.
  2. Light candle.
  3. Hold GLOSSY side of card stock over flame (keep it moving…), close enough so flame will create soot on card stock, but not close enough to burn through card stock (practice is the key…..).
  4. Gently wipe away soot with soft paper towel or tissue.
  5. Ink stamp (black is my preferred ink color for this technique) and stamp onto dusky background.
