Family Challenge - Soot Stamping

Judy picked out this very cool technique for our latest family challenge:

She makes it look SO easy - haha!

Hmmm, I’ve invested time in the past to making my candles NOT spew forth ribbons of black soot. This challenge had me working hard to get that candle to billow extra soot.  What I learned is that if I held the glass jar on a great angle, allowing the flame to lick up the side then I was rewarded with enough lovely soot for this project.

SUPPLIES:

Candle

Fixative Spray

Stamps

Cardstock

Stick on Letters

 

I chose to use a few new stamps I treated myself to last weekend - a Lost and Found Acrylic of an old time camera

and an Imaginisce Acrylic stamp of… a sunshine - but I just used some of the “rays” to create the effect of a flash going off.

And added these Teeny Alphas letters by Glitz for the sentiment! 

I don’t know about you but I’m clearly excited to hop on over to my sister Nina’s and sister in law Judy’s blogs to see what creative ways they came up with for this uber-cool technique.

  5. I had to laugh as I just read a book on the cave painters of the Chauvet Cave in France, I loved the parts where they spoke of the tools, and 3500 years ago soot was a high on the list contender, love love what you have done with it, hugs
