Hullo there everyone.
Before go further just want to announce that finally did the promised PanPastel post down below - so if you want to see it please scroll down or click here - have methods + tips there.
Well, another big BLINK!! and here we are ready for another mid week blog hop on WOYWW, starting over at our hostess’ Julia’s blog - to all the wonderfully inspiring desks around the world. Come and join in the fun at Julia's Stamping Ground! Having some wonderful inky fun here .. over at OSA Card Layout Challenges
they have a colour challenge using Red, Yellow Black.
Desk 1 - the night before. I was playing the Barbabra Gray Plastic wrap method - but changed it ( see here for original method)
I used gloss card as she did but used Distress inks not dye (as best red and yellow were DI). Did not brayer but added the ink onto gloss card straight from pad, covering most of white gloss card randomly - adding more red than yellow.
I laid down the water-spritzed crumpled up cling wrap, evening out the colour spread, removing any bubbles. Left it then removed plastic after five mins of drying (not completely dry, just partially). Resulting in no wrinkles as with proper method - the colours, because they were DI, become quite washed out when dry. But have just covered the dry sheets again with neat yellow ink from pad, it then popped all back to life, as shown!
Wanted a feature embossed piece. Lightly spritz the black card before embossing to get deeper impression, but heat dried it before wet embossing (Sizzix leaves - Embossing Folder) with black card. Used Versamark and red embossing powder, had to double emboss to cover surface area with the lovely molten gloss.
Here are the two finished cards - first is plainer, has rounded corners (as suddenly found my punch :D from Fred Aldous, Man. UK ) + handmade paper from Paperchase, also in Manchester, UK :D
|This one has the EK Success arrow punch on side and few other features.|
