I’ve not had much crafty time this week but what little I’ve had has been spent following Fashionable Stamping Challenges' call “Let’s get messy and inky”.
This wasn’t my first attempt … you can see a couple of my rejects below.
For this card I dug out my Posh Impression inks that, I must confess, are hardly used. They come with a hard sponge and, while it all seemed a good idea at the time, I’ve always found the inks too intense.
For this background I used 3 Posh inks and slapped them on with a brayer . I stamped on top (Kanban) and added silver edging and self-adhesive gems.
These are two of my rejects. I really like the sunset one but the silhouette is a bit splodgy – I always have this problem with this particular stamp. The sunset is made from alcohol inks and the layered background is the Posh inks.
The other card was an attempt at ‘Joseph’s Coat’ technique over alcohol inks. I need to do some more experimenting with this as I didn’t feel there was enough definition on the fish.
As well as Fashionable Stamping Challenges, I’d like to enter the butterfly card for:
