11/17 Rub On Samples

Ok, I'll be the first to admit that I'm not much of a Rub On fan. I seem to rub them every which way but the right way. Could that be lack of patience? Lack of persistance? Lack of skill??? Well, I decided that I would do my best to master this technique and I created two Rub On cards. Now, if I were a fan of making many unique one of a kind cards . . . I think I would be won over. But, I like to repeat my efforts. Afterall, if I make the effort in the first place . . . it's nice to be duplicatable. Rub Ons are not like stamps . . . I can't use them over and over and that my friend is what I find so frustrating. I tried the Rub On band wagon. Now, I'm going to get off. I'm quite the party pooper, aren't I? And the sun is shining!! Whatever.

I am with you on the rub-ons! I wish they had these images in STAMPS---I would use them lots & lots & lots! Esp that little Santa in his sleigh! But you did a great job with the big tag......my rub-on is still sitting lonely in its package, waiting for the rub!
