Morning, yep posting early this morning whilst playing catch up with Broadchurch...don't tell me la, la, la...fingers in my ears!
Who did it?
Could be so many different characters I usually have a stab but am reserving judgement with this show...why? Because I haven't a clue!
So many twists and turns....anyway back to crafting and today I am starting with my 3 cards from my inking techniques class.
I have created similar cards to these in the past and love playing with the Distress inks to make backgrounds. Working with these inks (Broken China below) is all about practising and getting a feel for the ink. We started by just applying one colour creating light and depth here.....
It's all in the movement, little circles and not too much pressure then you don't get lines. Also I find dabbing off initial ink helps, a bit like the dry brushing technique. It is much easier to add light laters over and over till you are happy than try and rush it.
The stamped image is by Marion Emberson Birthday kisses and the sentiment is by Hero Arts Anytime messages. I did of course have to add a bit of Spellbinder magic into the mix using the Classic square die together with Fleur de lis square to create the frame.
This is again a very much less is more card, the style I seem to be favouring just now.
That's all from me today, now I can't decide to iron or tidy my craft room....oh the decisions. I'm fancying making a Key lime cheesecake instead. Nomm, nomm.
Have a super Thursday. x
