Hey, there, everyone! Welcome to this month’s MFT Design Team Ingenious Inking Challenge! This month the theme is color-on-color. Fun!!
My card has several layers of color and I have a video showing exactly how I did it. You can view it HERE on my YouTube channel or click on the button below.
I’ll also give a quick run down of the steps here. On a piece of Ranger watercolor paper, I stamped Sheet Music Background with Kraft hybrid ink due to it’s waterproof properties. Next I stamped three images from LJD Peaceful Wildflowers with Steel Gray hybrid ink. Then I stamped the image from Jumbo Abstract Art first with ink and then Versamark using Sno Cone dye ink, Berrylicious dye ink, and Blu Raspberry dye ink, heat embossing with clear detail embossing powder as each color was applied. Next I sponged Peach Bellini dye ink and Coral Crush dye ink on the bottom and Berrylicious dye ink and Blu Raspberry dye ink at the top, blending them together. The reason I used watercolor paper is for the next step: splattering the dye inks with clear water so the ink would move and create a cool effect. Finally, I stamped a sentiment from LJD Spring Tulips on Steel Gray card stock with Versamark, heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, and popped it up on foam. To finish off I added some enamel dots.
Another sentiment from LJD Spring Tulips was stamped on the inside.
And there it is! Layer upon layer of color to create a one layer card with lots of visual dimension. Thanks so much for stopping by! See you soon!
