I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
Thank you for the comments you left on my last post.
Tonight’s little project is another quick and easy card.
Thank you to Jean and Malcolm at Crafty individuals for the image.
It may not look like a card because I did put a drop shadow on the image but it is.
The base of this is coated card stock.
I swished the white card blank in some diluted Distress Inks.
To dilute the Distress Inks, pat the ink onto an acrylic block and spritz with water.
I added a bit of pattern using a mask and Distress Ink.
I then stamped all the images, again, using Distress Inks.
I started with the lighter colors in the background and worked to the bold black images.
I fixed all of the inks with a spray fixative.
No masking, just quick and easy.
Tip: Using bold stamps. If your distress ink pads are new and a bit juicy pat them onto a Gelli plate first and then pick up the ink from that. I usually keep the older pads for using with bold stamps, especially when using coated card stock.
To get rid of any puddling, place a piece of copier paper over the stamped image and gently press down with your hand. This will take any excess ink off.
