Hey there! Happy Sunday! I'm way behind on my homewrok for Clean and Simple Card Making II class, but I'm trying to catch up. Day 8 was about some inky techniques and here are my humble attempts to put to work what I learned in class.
First, a tribute in the form of a tag to the queen of stamped plaid, Laura Bassen. Her video for the class was awesome and super funny! Franckly, stamping lines, inking, cleaning, inking, stamping and so on is as relaxing as stamping hundreds of dots (see here). I loved the process!
I finished the tag with sequins and a heat embossed bubble sentiment. The embossing allowed me to sponge some ink on it to color the letters.
Next, a bookmark that has already been put to good use by my husband. I tried to reproduce Kristina's cool technique with salt, but it didn't worked. I used Inktense pencils for my background instead of Distress Markers, so maybe it has something to do with that.
The process: I scribbled with the pencils on a die cut bookmark, and then went over it with a water brush and blended the colors. After heat setting with my heat gun I used and alpha stamp set to stamp "here", and an arrow. Finally, some of my brand new washi tape. Aren't that triangles gorgeous?
I'll try to be back later with my homework for day 9. Wish me luck ;)
Thanks for visiting!
