Today I'm sharing a new technique that my friend Karen came up with
and challenged us to use at Splitcoaststampers.
Karen is always trying new ways to use our stamping stuff.
This time she found a new way to swipe our credit cards!
I used the same colors of DOX ink that Karen used because I loved the color combination.
I pressed the ink pads on my craft sheet one at a time, spritzed with a little water,
swiped a used gift card through the ink and dragged it on some Neena cardstock.
After drying the ink, I repeated with the next color and so on.
After I was satisfied with the colors, I squirted some white paint on my craft sheet,
pressed the edge of the gift card in it and pressed it on the design piece. I did this
several time and got some splotches (I was being messy) and dragged the edge
across and up and down the piece.
For some added contrast, I pressed the edge of the card in my black ink pad and
did some cross hatches with that.
I have a twofer too.
Merry Monday is looking for rustic this week.
so this time I used some neutral Distress inks and left off the paint.
I had finally got the mess of paint cleaned off from the first card.
I think it's magic paint and it duplicates itself.
I squirted a little and swear I cleaned up a whole bottle full!
What a mess!
I found this piece of holly that I'd watercolored and not used
and plopped it on my "barn board".
The sentiment is heat embossed.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
