Hello Lovelies! Thank you for joining me for my little experiment! I am using foam to create a lightweight magnet that is layered with Distress-inked cardstock.
I honestly don't remember what made me decide to turn the Mountainous Cover Plate into a magnet, I think it totally started out as a card and then I went off the rails.
I also made a foam magnet with the Soaring Bird Wafer Die, but because of it's delicate design, it can be a little fussy to assemble and don't think it's ready for prime-time. LOL
Today, I'm using a golden oldie Distress Ink technique to create a water-splattered effect on the cardstock.
Now, let's take a look at the key supplies.

Our magnet will NOT be quite as powerful as this one...

MOUNTAINOUS MAGNET - Distress Inking and Layering
Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2
Today's color combo is all from my well-loved Distress palette - Forest Moss, Mowed Lawn, Blueprint Sketch, Barn Door and Mustard Seed.
Die-cut the Mountainous Cover Plate using 110lb Cardstock. Mark the back of each section with the color that you plan to it with
Spritz each section with water to create the Distress watercolored effect
Die-cut 3 foam sheets using the same cover plate
Adhere the dried sections to their matching foam piece with Craft Tacky Glue
To create dimension, some pieces will get 2 or 3 layers of foam backers adhered to the inked die-cut
Adhere each section to a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" 130lb Cardstock base
Finish with your preferred sentiment!
The water splatters enhance our colorful mountains cape.
Lovelies, I hope this was a fun detour from our usual cards. I will try my hand at another magnet sometime soon, using a another layered diecut but one that comes with a base that is fully intact, as my birdie was a challenge to assemble and I was too lazy to trace and cut out my own base.
