Timeless Textures - project 3

Good Morning, today I'm sharing the third project we made at this months technique class. For this card we used an inking technique using baby wipes.                                                                            

The card size used is A6. Base colour is Crumb Cake with a matt layer of Whisper White which was used as a base for the main design.
  • Before I started building the design on my card I firstly made my own ink pad using the baby wipe technique.
  • To do this, take yourself a baby wipe and fold it a couple of times to make a pad. I put this into an empty stamp case so that it didn't dry out immediately and I could use it again later. Add a few drops of each of the inks you are going to use. I used wisteria wonder, blushing bride and crumb cake. Put to one side for a few minutes to let the inks blend a little. 
  • Using one of the edge stamps from the timeless textures stamp set, stamp along the edge of the whisper white cardstock on two sides with blushing bride ink pad using second generation ink. 
  • Next using the small grid stamp and crumb cake ink pad, stamp using second generation in along the left hand side and bottom and a little in to top right corner. 
  • Now using the ink pad you've mad, ink up the flourish stamp and stamp along the left side and bottom. You will find that the stamp image is fairly light and has a distress feel to it. 
  • Then using the ink pad again use the small dots stamp and stamp randomly over the card. 
  • Wrap a little linen thread around the bottom of the card and then stick to the base card. 
  • Decorate by adding a small flower and a few sequins. The flower I used was made using the botanical builder framelits.
