Making Multiples Zany Zebras Etch A Sketch

Today I’m sharing the project I made on this week’s Facebook Live video.  You can watch the replay on YouTube or Facebook

Another demonstrator posted this card designed by Paula Skeen that she received in a swap.  I fell in love immediately, and knew I had to make several of them. (If you’ve been following my blog for a while you may remember the last time I made Etch-A-Sketch cards back in 2015! That used a different technique for the screen – check it out.)

When you watch the video you’ll see how I set up my Stamparatus to be able to easily stamp multiple panels with the zebras. I also give some tips about masking so that one zebra appears to be behind another.
The sentiments are stamped in Versamark and heat embossed in gold, just like on the real Etch-A-Sketch toy.    I did 2 as birthday cards, and 2 as welcome baby cards.
