|Corrines Gourd with 7 Gypsies Rubons
This gourd was cleaned and colored using Tim Holtz Distress Inks, then I applied 7 Gypsies Rubons to the
gourd and sealed with Claudine Hellmuth matte medium.
These are the new rubbings for Summer 2010. They are wonderfully done in the steampunk style that
is currently so popular. I love the steampunk style and even though I have loved all the rubbings 7 Gypsies have done
in the past, I particularly love these.
Rubbings are a great way to personalize a project and make it your own. Use on transparencies, glass,
paper, metal, books, candles, etc.
To Use, just cut out the rubbing style you want and use the handy-dandy applicator tool (popsicle stick)
and just rub it over and it will transfer to your surface of choice.
7 Gypsies Color Rubbings-Tickets~This is a beautiful color set of ticket rubbings complete with your
rubbing tool you can use over and over-ha ha- popsicle stick- low tech. It is efficient though. This has 17 different
tickets of various sizes and colors. For a frame of reference, the top right tickert measures 1 1/2" wide and approx
2" high. There is a ticket for transit commissions, win a car tick, carriage check, some foreign ones and one that looks
like an invoice. Very pretty. I personally love the rubbings 7 Gypsies does. They always look nice when
you use them. I recently used some of the black and white ones on a gourd I colored. I sealed them with matte
medium and hopefully soon I will have a pic up of that.
7 Gypsies Color Rubbins-Apothecary~This apothecary line has been very popular and now they are carrying
it over into the rubbings. This sheet contains 18 different labels. Some include lime water, astringent tincture,
lavender water, ammonia, arsenic, salve, chloroform liniment and more. The color is very nice- looks like the real deal.
As a frame of reference- the label on the top right measures approx. 1 3/8" wide and 1" high.
