Holiday Card Workshop - Day 6 - Card 1

Day 6 class is about inking techniques.  I really, really liked the stained class technique but I don't have all the materials to do it.  But I will get them and give it a try later.  So I decided to try the other inking technique which involves inking up a card panel with Tim Holtz Distress Inks and then misting a background stamp with water and stamping on the inked card panel.  I changed it a little - I used Mister Huey's Calico Shine mist instead of water on the background stamp.

I never thought of inking up paper by rubbing a whole ink pad on it, but I tried that here and I really like it.  It was really fast; I just went in after with a blending tool and blended out the harsh line between colors.  Easy peasy.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day!
