Playing with Inks

Hi, everyone! Spent the night getting inky trying out the techniques shared during Day 2 of the Background Online Card Class.

Left Card: pigment ink on top of dye ink
Middle Card: stamping on top of stamping
Right Card: resist on pattern paper
first attempt at plaid

Lessons Learned:
  • Jennifer, Kristina, and Laura are unbelievably talented. They just make it all look so easy and effortless!
  • In spite of the stash I have, I never seem to have just the right stuff to achieve the look I want from these techniques, like those stamps used by Laura to create her plaids and the pigment ink used by Kristina. Hmmm...
  • Need to go to Pinterest and search out nice color combos for plaids.
  • Can't wait for Day 3!

Speaking of stash, there's a new bling challenge going on at Shopping our Stash. Here's my card.

Canson watercolor; Distress Ink ble
Hero Arts image, heat embossed in Distress Ink with Zing powder
Stamper's Anonymous stencil inked in DI spiced marmalade and mustard seed with Ranger blending tool

Love the cheeriness of this little card. Think this one is going in my SAS4Kids box.  :)

Have a great day! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
