View Full Version : Print It!-Due: Dec 16th

10-31-2022, 01:53 PM
Due date: Friday December 16th

Number of cards: 3 for 3 OR 6 for 6
Number of players:unlimited
Media-open but NO embellishments such as stickers, jewels, scrapbook items

This swap is similar to one I hosted in the past. Your job is to print, but not with rubber stamps. You will use items that are really for some other purpose. The best example is punchinella or sequin waste. Your design can be abstract OR representational. You can use ink pads, distress ink, distress oxide inks, paint etc.
Your prints should be the star but you can use paint or inks for background. No white backgrounds, please.
I have been using foreign text as backgrounds recently.

Here is a list of items to use for printing( you might think of others):

rubber bands wrapped around a brayer or block.....pencil grips....pencil erasers....lids (you don't have to remove them)... furniture leg protectors.... corn or bunion cushions...go to Foot care products...they have adhesive & will stick to wooden block....sink drainers...jars or lids with raised up designs...bubblewrap...packing materials...scrunched paper towel...dice...

If you think of others, let me know and I will add them.

Please DO NOT use veggies, fruit or live objects.

Mailing info- Everyone should send a label or paper with your mailing address.
US players send one forever stamp.
International players-I will cover your postage.
I will provide envelopes for everyone.

Who is ready for an adventure in printing with objects?

Lots of things make interesting prints when you dip them in paint or rub an ink pad over them. Something interesting that you might explore.

Sign me up. Was just making some paper prints today!

10-31-2022, 08:33 PM
Well, I added you. also I got my returns from ScrapBin ATCs and there is one of your cards.

11-01-2022, 12:02 PM
I am lurking for the moment. How about lace with raised motifs, sponges, stencil brushes?

11-01-2022, 12:35 PM
Fabric sometimes works. Corduroy would be good.

11-01-2022, 02:41 PM
I would like to join. Sounds like a fun swap.

11-01-2022, 04:41 PM

Of course, your icon reminds me of gelli printing. And I think using a gelli plate would work for this swap, too.

11-02-2022, 11:02 AM

11-02-2022, 11:26 AM
I have used various gel prints, a fork, bottle cap, meat grinder plate, cheese cutter, and cut eraser stamp to make various marks on my prints. Such fun!!

11-02-2022, 11:36 AM
Sounds like fun. I'll lurk while I dig through my bag of mark making goodies I have saved for gelli plate printing.

Sign me up please :)

11-03-2022, 09:04 AM
I was about to ask it I could use a gelli plate; tho straight printing with the big box of junk I have collected shoukd work too. So many possibilities!

11-03-2022, 05:37 PM
Looks like fun but I'll lurk just a bit to see what I can come up with.

11-04-2022, 11:15 PM
Fun! Lurking :)

I love how each object-printed card is unique.

11-07-2022, 09:59 AM
Please add me! This sounds like so much fun.

11-07-2022, 10:58 AM
Yes, this is fun. A good place to look for objects is foot care at a grocery or department store. Little cushions for bunions are adhesive circles.

11-07-2022, 04:12 PM
My cards are done. One or more of the following items were used to create each card:
makeup sponge, bamboo skewer, shaggy, dry sea sponge, natural bristle vegetable brush, bottle cap, crumpled tinfoil, bundled raffia, cotton twine, metal knitting needle & a piece of silpat mat.

I used the mesh bag of the onions, a plastic thingy that is used to clean the garlic press (Sorry I don't know the name hehe) bottle caps, the tip of a straw, a shoelace, bubble wrap, twine, and some numbers from an expired debit card.
This was so much fun!

11-14-2022, 12:40 PM
I want to try raised numbers on expired card. I save those cards for spreading paint.

11-16-2022, 11:15 AM
I looked all over my art room and didn't find my collection of old credit cards etc. I am starting to make cards anyway.

11-16-2022, 11:16 AM
I got some cool circles in the Foot Care dept. And they are adhesive.

I'm finding my distress oxide inks are working better than my rubber stamps.

11-16-2022, 08:43 PM
LindyLu, your cards arrived and thanks for the host card. I see that once you got started it must have been hard to stop.
I began my cards and I will pick 6 when I am tired of printing.

11-17-2022, 09:18 PM

I will be out of state for a couple of nights. Back by sunday noon.

11-21-2022, 06:12 PM
I would like to play!
I have three cards complete and NO WHITE BACKGROUND
As soon as I clear some space in my room, I will do a few more as I have some further ideas in my head which needs to get out onto ATCs.

Once you start making cards for this swap, it is hard to stop. I've made many and also have some more ideas to try out. At least I don't have to mail mine.
