Ink Smooshing Feature Image Card

posted in: Blog, jeni | 0

I do love some ink smooshing with Distress inks!  Another stamp set that I haven’t really played with yet is this Altenew Bottleful Of…

All the products I used to create these cards are listed and linked at the bottom of this post.  All the supplies are available now over at our online shop

Bottleful-Of-Altenew

The first card doesn’t have any ink smooshing on it.  I used watercolour cardstock for all these cards.  On this card I stamped the bottle outline with black ink and the solid bottle with Forest Glades ink three times to make three bottles.  I stamped onto watercolour cardstock so I didn’t get a smooth stamped impression on this textured cardstock. I stamped the solid label in Tumbled Glass ink and fussy cut them out.  I stamped the words “kindness” “cheers” and “sunshine” on the oval labels and used some foam tape to adhere them.  I cut this piece to 4 ½” (the width is 3 ¾”) and glued it onto a mat of green cardstock.  Just above the watercolour piece I stamped “sending you a bottleful of” and added three dots with a white gel pen.  This is a standard 4 ¼” x 5 ½” sized top folding card.

To create this beautiful yellow inky background, I smooshed some Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed distress inks onto my craft mat.  I sprayed some water to get the ink moving and pushed my watercolour cardstock down into this lovely colour.  I smooshed and moved the watercolour card so that the whole card was covered in ink and let this dry.  There aren’t dies available for this stamp set, so I made a mask of the bottle outline, and cut it out.  I stamped the middle bottle first and covered this with the mask so I could stamp the two other bottles.  While I had the mask in place I also stamped the decorative label.  Inside the label on the first bottle I stamped the sentiment “sweet love” and stamped the rest of the sentiment “you are a bottleful of” onto a small watercolour strip and cut a banner edge.  This is then adhered to a standard A2 top folding card base.

 

I hope you like these cards I created with the Bottleful Of stamp set.  Which one is your favourite?
