a good rubbing...



We love a good rubbing here at the gypsy workshop.  
You know... the take a fabulous vintage image and rub it onto anything kind of rubbing??
(not following? then read on gypsy...)

We simply adore that rubbings can go so many places and on all kinds of surfaces (trust us we've tried it all).  If you haven't mastered the art of stamping you'll delight in the crisp & clear results you get from using a rubbing instead AND they are super easy to use.

1.  cut out the image you'd like to rub
2.  peel off the protective backing
3.  place on surface
4.  rub until you can see the image has transferred


Here are just a few of the places a rubbing can go...
photos

glass
metal
fabric


wood



or how about ornaments, crystals, baby spoons...


they also look great rubbed directly to any of our trays!
