Ashley shows us how to use our ink pads to design our cards
on this week's Makeit Monday.
Totally fun and colorful way to be creative with the stamp pads.
Needed a few cards for Thanksgiving, so I made 2 cards for the challenge.
Cut a window in my Rustic Cream card stock with Limitless Layers oval, ran it through the Cuddlebug again with the Woodgrain embosser (both PTI), and then came the fun.
Using Canyon Clay inkad, I swiped it over the card stock. Really brought out the grain of the wood.
Spritzed it with water, to tone down just a bit.
Basket of Blessings copper embossed and selectively bleached. (Remember that tutorial?)
Autumn Acorn leaves and PTI twine.
2nd card used Basket of Blessings again (it was handy, and I love that basket!)
This time embossed in gold, and again used bleach.
(It was handy too!)
The sentiment was clear embossed before I applied the ink pad. I also spritzed it with water.
I think it looks like marble!
Sentiment is also from Basket of Blessings. I used my gold gel pent hilight the T and B.
