Numbers Under the Sea

  Hello All,

Today I will be playing along with Mod Squad and The Male Room. I have a lot to talk about on this card. This post will be very similar to my other post here. What an effect, but of course you be the judge. So, without further ado here is my card for today, enjoy!

A quick disclaimer. These names, addresses, and phone numbers are from the commercial white pages. Meaning all numbers are advertised and public. I am not giving any personal information away. Plus, this phonebook is at least five years old.

So this is the phonebook page. When I want to iron off some embossing I go to the trusty phonebook, pick a page, and iron it off. That is exactly what I was doing when I thought of Mod Squad. I ripped out the page and found it translucent where I ironed off the embossing from the other project. This was so amazing and never saw anything like it. 

This is the reflective paper I used for this card. It is like a mirror. In the corner of the paper, you can actually see my phone taking the picture. I thought the reflective surface would be a good fit for the translucent phonebook page.

To some, this stamped scene may be a familiar sight. It is from the Hero Arts MMHK for July 2020. I have been wanting to use it for quite a while. You will notice the phonebook theme is also part of the ruins of Atlantis. I distressed it by brushing on Hickory Smoke and Mermaid Lagoon on the image.

You can see the reflective paper through the pages.
Take a look at the video below to get a better idea of what I am seeing.

Like I mentioned in my last post; I hope I explained the phonebook iron-off technique well enough for you to possibly use it. I am sure it will work on other types of paper just as long as it thin. If I was as clear as mud, please contact me and I'll explain further. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and I do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. Lots of good crafting vibes headed your way. I hope you all have a fantastic day and stay crafty my friends.


All the best,
