Carding with Fantasy Fiber by Anam Stubbington
I adore the Art Glitter Fantasy Fibers – they have that translucent shimmer quality – like mermaids in the sea. And they can do anything!!
Art Glitter Fantasy Fiber: Cotton Cloud
Art Glitter Fantasy Fiber: Cameo Rose
Rubber Stamps & Permanent Ink Pad
Household Iron & Parchment or brown paper. Make sure your paper is bigger than the stamp as the fibers will melt to your iron.
Card blanks (mine have been embossed with cuttlebug folder dies)
(note if you use acrylic stamps, be very very careful as they have a tendency to either melt or get soft under the iron)
The basic instructions on the pack work wonders: ink up your stamp, add the fibers on top of the stamps. Then a piece of brown paper and then iron for a few seconds.
I don’t like to iron the fibers completely flat at the edges so i can pull off any loose fibers and give it a feathered look.
