stampin up demonstrator uk Zoe Tant
In my previous post I mentioned that one of my party hostesses asked me to do something with ink. Over the past couple of weeks I have been playing about with reinkers, distressing kit and many other bits and pieces. I also recently saw a lovely card by Donna, an american demonstrator, who has done some fabulous effects with inks. It inspired me to play about with a few more products and see what I could come up with. I have no idea whether this is anything like what she did, but thanks for the inspiration Donna.
Now I've incorporated my ink and stuff technique into my Less is More entry this week. This challenge is to make and clean and simple card and include ribbons and or buttons. I've done both to compliment my butterfly. I've used the Flight of the Butterfly stamp set to add antennae to the butterfly and Every Moment for my sentiment. The other supplies are listed at the end of my post. I will come back with more examples of my 'Crystal Ink' technique. I've really enjoyed venturing into the use of products that I have until now shied away from, so really it's thanks to Marj for asking me to do something with ink that I've become a little bravier and tried something different.
Funniest thing is that unfortunately Marj's 'artist' friends couldn't make it to her party in the end because the driver was ill. However the ladies had a fun time experimenting with this card. This too fits, with the challenge at Less is More for the ribbon, but is too much for a CAS card. I wanted to share it with you anyway.
I hope you enjoy your weekend whatever the weather and find time to relax.
