It is like another one I did a couple years ago. The technique is fun but a little challenging. The idea is that you hold a paper over a flame and get soot on it. Then you stamp your image with no ink. This lifts the soot off , Finally you seal it. I have learned the following hints from doing this before.
- I didn't have any luck with photo paper. I have really loved using the Ultra Glossy cardstock from Paper Temptress.
- Use a taper candle rather than a pillar.
- Get the paper right down in the flame, pretty close to the wick.
For the card here, the tree is an older stamp from Rubber Stampede. The pumpkins came from a scarecrow stamp from I Brake For Stamps. The embossed background is from Cuttlebug. The buttons were an embosslet from Stampin Up
