A mouse pad works well for under the paper cushion, but I prefer under- the- rubber- cushion.
Here is a really cheap cling back DIY foam you might want to try. It worked for me!!
Using two sheets of regular ol' craft foamy stuff: I glued the two sheet together, and then glued the rubber on top.
I used this Jewelry glue because I had it and I thought it would be the right glue for this job.
It worked perfectly, no doubt you will have something in your stash too.
After the adhesive dried ( about an hour later) I added Aleenes tack it over and over to the back side and let that dry for a few hours.
This works beautifully with my mega mount
I stamped a couple of the back ground sheets.
And then made the main image for the card:
Taking my color que from this little piece of paper
I brayed a background - a tip here, only roll your brayer in one direction.
I stamped over this with the fish image, Added a layer of Versa mark ink by pouncing it over the brayered ink.
I then heat embossed in clear over the whole thing.
Colored and fussy cut a few fish, added nail polish with iridescent scales.
and here is the finished card:
Try the foamies for you unmounted's it costs pennies, it is super easy and you get great results!
