Believe in Magnets

Becky Conley

The Duetica Lettering System is both fun and easy. You can personalize and create fun things like cards or even Fridge Magnets!! Here’s how. First select your favorite page of sheet music. Pick three colors of acrylic paint radomly with your brush letting some of the notes peek through. The blocks I used in my document are 2×3 inches so I can layer it onto something else. For the magnet, I used a piece of Stampbord 2 1/2 x 3 1/2. Create a document the same size as your project and insert text with the DT Mandolyn font. Stamp flowers using the “huffing” method. Use a sheet of paper as a mask so that you won’t stamp into another square. Add color to the flowers with alcohol pens. Stamp/flourish with Lettuce Adirondak ink. Stamp the flourish with Clover Adirondak ink. Spray the entire project with a light coat Krylon Matte Finish. Make sure it is completely dry before continuing on your project. Print your word document onto your project. Stamp the butterfly using Sail Boat Blue Adirondak ink. Heat set the entire project and spray again with Krylon Matte Finish. Cut squares apart. Spray the Stampbord with Lettuce Color Wash and Blue Hawaii Memory Mist. Heat set. Stamp the Stampbord with Versa Mark and emboss with silver embossing powder. Adhere the paper square to the front of the stamp-board. Use a drill or dremel tool to pierce a small hole in the bottom right corner. Attach the large beads to wire and twist the end, place through the hole and secure. Apply glue to cover the hole and sprinkle with small glass beads. Attach magnet to the back.
