More Splash Ink Cards

Posted by Picasa

Splash Ink is fun!


My friend Karen Thomas has developed a great new product called Splash Ink. I taught several classes using it last week. In additional to its great watercolor-like properties which gives you beautiful detailed coloring abilities, you can also use it like this:

Drip the Splash Ink randomly onto regular white cardstock using all four colors in the set or just the ones you want. Place a plastic lunch bag on top of the wet ink and squish it around. Peel off the plastic bag and squish it again on a new sheet of cardstock for a more subtle effect. The ink dries quickly so you can emboss right on top and make some super pretty and colorful cards. Use the left over bits to punch out a few flowers as shown in the finished card. Fun and addictive!

New Digital Stamps - Black & White Grid Panels


I'm doing a card class in black & white. Here's one of the cards and the grid panels I designed for it. I added a few punched out flowers and Viva Decor Pearl Pen dots in black and white to relieve the severity of the grids. Just print out the panels and give B&W a try.
