Technique Hop – “Inky Fingers”

Welcome to the Inky Fingers Blog Hop!

This month we are exploring techniques that use inks. If you are coming from MELISSA ROBINSON’s Blog, you are on the right track! If you get lost you can find a full list of participants HERE we have about 12 makers participating in this hop.

I played around with resist and oxide inks. I used the Distressed Watercolor paper and then used VersaMark ink with the snowflakes from the Elegant Snowflakes Stamp and Thin Cuts. I then used White Embossing Powder on the snowflakes.

For this card I sponged on the Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire on over the embossed snowflakes. I then used my spray bottle and my stencil I created to use with the bokeh with a wet paper towel. I placed the stencil over the cardstock and then dabbed the wet paper towel to create the circles. Then using the Stitched Rectangle Thin Cut to frame the cardstock. I then used the spray bottle to add the variation on size. I then added a 3/4 inch strip of velum. I then used the Yuletide Borders with Silver Foil Papers.

With this card I repeated the first steps with VersaMark ink, Snowflakes, and Distressed Watercolor Cardstock. This time using I stamped the Oxide inks on my All Purpose mat. I then spritzed with water and then smooshed the cardstock on to the paper and drying using my heating tool. I repeated this process adding layers of color. This time I used Vellum and Black Cardstock with the Yuletide Borders.
