Welcome to our mid month post where the current challenge for the Design Team is to 'try something new' and this month it's Tracy turn to share, so I will hand you over to her:
"It's my turn to do the mid month inspirational post were we need to 'try something new'. So I have tried two different techniques. I normally shy away from inky projects, they do scare me! I think I'm what they call a clean crafter, so I got some inky fingers and watched a few tutorials and came up with this card and gift bag".
So I used Distress Inks to make my background, after I had stamped my images I coloured them in with a black pen to make them into silhouettes.
I made a background paper by stamping fairy dust and adding sparkle. I don't have a grass stamp so I drew it in. I surprised myself with the result.
I used a different technique for this gift bag, I put my Distress inks onto an acrylic block and sprayed it to give a water colour look. Then I embossed a dandelion and brought it to life with distress inks and Glamour dust, then stamped the smaller dandelion. To finish off I made a backgound paper.
There's probably room for improvement, but I enjoyed doing it even if I got very inky LOL!!
Many thanks Tracy, I am sure you will inspire other "clean crafters" to get inky.
