Thinking of You

I had lots of fun playing on the weekend. I'd seen this technique before and had wanted to try it for a while. I don't know what it is called, but it's stamping in versamark then inking over the whole card (white gloss card) in a light colour then stamp again in versamark and ink in another colour and just keep going until your happy with the result. I did three layers. Each layer is a different colour. It works really well with a brayer. I haven't got a brayer yet (on my wish list) so I just wiped the ink pad across the card. In between each layer polish with a tissue. I was so happy with how this turned out I did a couple more with different stamp sets and colours. Which I will show you soon.

Stamp Set : Petal Prints
Ink : Versamark, Ruby Red, Cameo Coral, Summer Sun
Card : White Gloss, Whisper White, Cameo Coral, Ruby Red
Punches : Large oval, corner rounder
Accessories : white grosgrain ribbon, paper snips, dimenionals, tissues

If you know what this technique is called please let me know.

My order just arrived so I'm off to play for a bit until I meet the girls for lunch.

Enjoy your day.
