1. I love it that we have the option to purchase unmounted deeply etched red rubber! It comes on smart cushion so all I have to do is use my acrylic blocks and I'm all set! This is wonderful because it saves me a lot of money (not paying for wood blocks) and storage space (don't have to lug around said blocks) but I am NOT compromising the quality I get with red rubber. The techniques I can do are endless with rubber.
2. The CHF forum is fantastic! Chalked full of ideas and techniques. It is very educationally orientated and I love to learn new things....this is what keeps this craft so fresh to me. The girls on this team are always willing to share their helpful hints and advice. Did I mention that I (((((heart))))) the design team girls!
3. The variety of images. This is where I want to show you a couple of examples. If you feel like coloring, there are images for that...ie. Thomas Kinkade, Tom Allen's Friendly Kritters just to name a couple. I colored a small Kinkade vignette below to show you some coloring.
The detail that is achieved in this red rubber is amazing! All I needed to do was add some color with my copics! If I don't feel like coloring I can always just stamp and let my ink be the color. For example below:
This card is made with the Nature Silhouettes and Beautiful. The Cornish images could be describes as ornate, modern, classic, playful, darling.....I could go on.
