Itching to get inky.

February 2, 2011

I’m stuck in class but totally wishing I was at home so I could make something. I think my mojo is back, but I need to sit down so I can actually harness this energy. Ha. Anyways, I’ve been super interested in the process of starting out with a white piece of cardstock and just using distress ink lately. For this card, I used this CL482 Dots and Flowers image, stamped it, and then masked off the flowers and inked over the entire piece with green distress inks. Then, I peeled those masks off, masked off the leaves, and then inked the flowers and the background with blues. This is the end result:

Here’s a close-up:

Supplies: Cardstock- Papertrey Ink (White and Kraft), Stamps- Hero Arts (CL482 Dots and Flowers CL497 Find Joy), Ink- Ranger (Distress Ink In Forest Moss, Crushed Olive, Peeled Paint, Tumbled Glass, and Broken China) and Tsukineko (Memento Black), Ribbon- Papertrey Ink (Spring Moss), White Pen- Signo Uniball.

I also wanted to say that Hero Arts rocks! I helped them with their flower project (featured on their blog today) and they sent me a sampling from basically every set they just released at the end of December. They basically rock and now I have more stamps to make pretty things with. It was hard work to make a 100 of those flowers. I think I probably spent about 50 hours total doing them, but they made it worth my while. Just one more testament to why I adore this company.

Okay, have to run off to class again. After I make it through today, though, I’m in the home stretch for the week. Woot!

    Your card looks great! I can’t believe you colored that all with masking and distress inks! It almost looks like patterned paper! Great job.

    And WOW on the Hero Arts goodies! How generous of them!
