... if you're like me and went wild over the new Papertrey Ink burlap impression plate that goes on sale today.
I NEED that. I'm dying for more choices of subtle backgrounds.
But then I thought...
Wait a minute, don't I have burlap? Wouldn't that be just as good as a piece of metal trying to be like burlap?
Folks, it turns out that it is!
I cut a piece of scrap burlap the same size as my foam pad, and ran that through my Big Shot.
I can't believe how well it works!
Now maybe you all already know this and I've just been on the slow boat all year, but you would not believe how excited I got in my craft room today. Then I started thinking about all other textures.
(eta: turns out misting masks work just as well too, see post here!)
You can bet there will be some experimenting going on when school starts up and I have more time for crafting/blogging. Even the burlaps I tried were different. One is pretty even and has lots of holes, one is more random with thin and thick strands that don't run straight. I love it!
In the meantime, I thought I'd share my excitement with you and perhaps save the $16 for that impression plate for some other awesome Papertrey goodies that you can't duplicate at home.
Thanks for looking!
