I’ve not played along with Papertrey’s Make It Monday before … mostly because I could never come up with what I thought was a good enough idea without going way past the deadline. This week’s different … I got my act together and am joining in with the Ink Pad Design challenge. I’m also linking this card as my last entry to SSS Monday‘s Got Ink challenge and to SSS Wednesday, where there’s a Thanks/Thanksgiving theme.
I tried the first technique that Ashley showed in her video … swiping ink direct from pads. My card is a coated one, and as the ink dried, the colours merged where they met … there are three colours here but it looks like five (to my eyes anyway!). After I’d swiped the base, I used a narrow panel of inked card, and stamped and embossed the sentiment in white, before mounting it on a white panel and adhering that to the base. The finishing touch was the scattering of gems in similar colours to the inks.
I might just make it back later with a little something … in the meantime, thanks so much for coming by, your visits and comments are always a joy! Anita 🙂
