The first credit card bill has yet to arrive BUT....you KNOW what you did!!!
Suddenly all those people advising you to cut up your credit cards seem to be wise beyond their
BUT WAIT!!!! DON'T cut them up!!!
I have a MUCH better idea!
Let's "paint" fabric with them!! (The added value is that you can't use them in a credit machine again!!!)
Here is the list of supplies....very simple
Credit, Gift, Dinner Club (etc.) cards
That's it and you're ready. Take a deep breath and let the panic of debt fall away for just a minute.
For this technique it is a good idea to tape your fabric down so that it is very stable.
I am using a piece of white PFD for this first part so you can better see the different elements.
Next the paint. I just used some very basic acrylic paints but glittery and marbly ones would be way cool as well.
Now the fun begins. Just take the side of your card and draw it through the paint like a knife through butter. Then make your mark! I started using the card like a paint brush, making swirls switching from one side of the card to the other is an "S" move. Also made some that were more closed circles.
Then I took the corner of the card, dipped in the paint and made dots with it.
NOW.....(drum roll)....the winner of the Mystery Technique 1!!!
Just a quick note: It was appropriately mentioned that awarding the first correct answer in a group so wide spread as this did not afford everyone an equal chance. Correct. So, wanting to be fair to all, the winner will now be chosen from all the correct answers.
The prize is the piece of frabic in the mystery!!
The technique is pounded fabric!! If you are interested in this technique, I did a mini presentation on the FIRE blog April 28-30, 2014. All the instructions are in those three days. Happy Pounding!
For this piece I did use some Lumiere paint I had left over from a project which is why there is the metallic bit in the fabric.
Now for the winner!!!
PAM HARRIS !!!!!
Pam if you can send me your mailing information (kelly@KellyLHendrickson.com) I will get the piece of pounded fabric out to you right away.
That's it for today all of you! See you on Wednesday for some more credit card fun!
