Kim Hughes is back with us today to share a project using some fun rub-ons. Here’s Kim’s project:

Have you ever collaged before? With stamps or cut papers perhaps? How about using rub-ons? American Crafts has the most amazing rub-on packs that contain the perfect images for this technique. I hope you give it a try.

Step 1: choose a rub-on set with multiple colors and different size and shape ranges


Step 2: Cut out the images that you can collage with. Typically a few different colors and sizes and a border that has a simple pattern


Step 3: layer the rub-ons to see where you’d like them to go. Take note of where they over lap.


start with the bottom layer


then the middle layer



and lastly, the top layer of rub-ons. cut the card base, add a hand written sentiment and tie a coordinating bow at the top.
