July Ingenious Inking DT Challenge––Resistance is Futile

inginkresist_2015jul28


Hi, all, welcome to the MFT’s July Ingenious Inking DT Challenge. This month we’re challenge to do some embossed resist on our cards or projects.


MFT_IngeniousInking_SideBar

This is one of my favorite inking techniques and I had fun getting inky! I started with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. Then, on a piece of Ranger watercolor paper, I stamped Tiny Stars Background with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder. To do my resist technique, I used Blueberry dye ink. First, with a water brush, I dampened the watercolor paper, then loaded my brush with ink and swiped it on. It took about three “layers” to get the depth of color and coverage that I was looking for but it was so worth the effort.

I dried it with my heat tool and popped it up on foam mounting tape after tying around some hemp baker’s twine at the top. Next, I stamped the two sentiments, from LLD Count the Stars, on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder before popped them up on foam. I cut the “Star” from LLD Stars & Wishes Die-namics from Silver Sparkle card stock and popped that up, as well, before adding some smaller stars in silver and glue glitter paper.

I started my card with a Sweet Tooth card stock base. I added a strip of Steel Gray card stock, stamped with Split Diagonal Background and Steel Gray dye ink and then a panel of Sweet Tooth card stock swiped with MPD Scallops Stencil and white embossing paste. Next I stamped up some LJD Wildflowers Die-namics, cut from Sweet Tooth card stock, with Ripe Raspberry dye ink, Jellybean Green dye ink, and Limelight dye ink, tied them together in a bouquet with some baker’s twine, and popped them up on foam mounting tape. The sentiment was stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder before also being popped up on foam. To finish off, I added some enamel dots.

Be Silly–SSSC #279

SSSC279_2015jul26


Hi, everyone, it’s time for a new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Love this sketch—it’s a circle so of course I had to do a shaker card ;-)


SSSC279

I started with a Grout Gray card stock base, then cut LJD Jumbo Peek-a-Boo Circle Windows Die-namics in a Sweet Tooth card stock panel. Next I stamped the image from PI Clowning Around on Neenah Classic Crest Cover, Solar White Smooth, 110lb with Black Licorice hybrid ink and colored it up with Copic markers. I was almost done when disaster struck…

…that moment with your heart sinks to your feet. I opened a Copic marker that was obviously over-filled and a huge drop fell on my image.

If it *HAD* to happen, I guess this was the best scenario because it was fixable. Another millimeter lower and I’d have had to start over. As it was, I redid the hat and paper pieced it on top of the original and you can’t tell anything ever happened. Whew! Disaster narrowly averted!

So, when that was done, I finished my shaker element and carried on. The sentiment is from the set and was stamped on Black Licorice card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white detail embossing powder, then popped up on foam mounting tape. The balloons are from BB Birthday Bears, were also colored with Copic markers and popped up on foam, as well.

And that’s it! We’d love to see you playing along at the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! Thanks so much for stopping by today—see you soon!
