Day 19 - January 19, 2010

Now you see it?? A work in progress


220 Screen
Glow in the dark Yudu Ink
Cardstock in pale yellow, red, purple, and blue


Grandma will celebrate her 79th birthday in a few days. It would be great to give her a birthday card that has a little extra to it.

First we prepared a transparency with an assortment of sizes and fonts that said "Happy Birthday". We then used the transparency to create a screen. For this project we are trying out the 220 screen as it is advertised for use with paper. Once the screen was prepared and dried, we inserted into the Yudu. Using Glow in the Dark Yudu ink we loaded the screen with ink and made several images on cardstock. We tried a variety of colors and decided the pale yellow will work best for our birthday card.

The photos that follow show the completed screen, the pale yellow cardstock after it has been screened, and the what the cardstock looks like after the lights are out.
