Water colour effects using ink and stamps.
Posted on 29 Jun 2015
This week has been a colorful week what with dealing with all the loadshedding and being creative at the same time!
So I kept working with some dye inks to make pretty pastel coloured cards. I just love the effect you can achieve.
I created a quick and easy card with some bling of course.
step 1 – Adhere your acrylic stamp to the Chiswick stamping block.
Ink up the stamp with the dye ink colour of your choice.
step 2 – Lightly mist the inked stamp with water and stamp the image onto smooth white cardstock.
step 3 – Cut out the image.
Stamp a pink heart in the same manner to create a watercolour look. Cut out the heart too.
step 4 – Add some foam dots to the back of the cut out heart.
step 5 – Adhere the heart to the assembled card.
Add a layer of dimensional glaze to the heart.
**For the step x step I did not adhere the heart to my card first – but by doing this you will prevent the glaze
from running over the sides as the heart curls up before the glaze dries.
step 6 – Lightly sprinkle some gold glitter onto the wet dimensional glaze and let it dry.
The glaze captures the glitter inside for a shiny effect.
step 7 – To create the washi tape strip, adhere the washi tape to a scrap piece of white cardstock
and then cut into a flag.
By adding it to a thicker base you can create a firm cardstock type element or strip to use on cards and layouts.
I used the following Products available from Chiswick for this quick and easy card project!
