Just rub it on....

More cards, I know....but they are my thing - Today, I'm showing cards that are made only using the new Tim Holtz Remnant Rubs.....there's more to these than meets the eye (or something like that!)

Products used from A Sprinkle of Imagination
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Remnant Rubs: Words; Elements
Distress Paint: Mustard Seed
Distress Ink Pad: Salty Ocean

Bee Card

Basically, I added some Distress Paint directly on to the card front and rubbed it out with a paper towel. Then I added the Remnant Rubs - take a piece of sandpaper and sand all the edges of the card and go over the paint and rub on image.....be careful not to rub to hard over the rub-on.

Balloon Card

This time, I added the balloon rub-on to the card first, then went over the top with some Salty Ocean Distress ink. Again, I took the sandpaper and sanded all the card edges and sanded over the ink and rub-on.

Who needs stamps! (only kidding) but just these look brilliant just using rub-ons.
