Be Colour Brave | Ink Smooshed Line Art

|

Hey Crafty People! In this week’s Saturday Inspiration I am striving to be colour brave. I am creating a fun ink smooshed background with black, line art stamping. I chose the Love You Bunches stamp set from Trinity Stamps and then I took inspiration from their packaging & branding to select my colours. Trinity use quite an unusual & striking colour combo for their packaging, and I’m trying to stretch myself artistically by finding inspiration for colour combos everywhere.   … Read More

Colouring the images…   Skin Tones: E000, E00 … Read More

Any kind goes, I used mostly Distress Oxides, one Catherine Pooler dye ink and a generic pink pigment ink. Smoosh and blend til you’ve got no white space left. Let them mix as much or as little as you like. Only … Read More

Rainbow Birthday Wishes Card by Sarah

A bit of ink smooshing from me today.   Process Tap your red ink pad directly onto your acrylic stamping block, roughly filling in the first inch in from the end. Spritz the inked block with a little water and press it down onto your card front with the edge of the block at the edge of the card – let the ink smoosh rightwards across the card front, sometimes it’ll bloom out further, sometimes it’ll stay about an inch … Read More

Time for some metallics and glitter! Process Blend up a background straight onto your card blank in green and blue inks. Add a gently curving swoosh of embellishment mousse in from each side with a tissue, then put the card aside to completely dry. Stamp and heat emboss the mandala and leaves on vellum paper. I did the mandala just in silver and the leaves in silver first, heated til only just melting, then allow to cool, reapply embossing ink … Read More
