I’m not sure if I like this card yet, (it’s growing on me) J
however, with CTMH’s Convention taking place in Orlando this week (check out tomorrows blog post for some pictures of Convention), I didn’t have time to revamp or recreate another card.
Let me share the main item I used in creating this card…
I wanted to use PIGMENT ink on this card…so, I used pigment ink on TWO different places on this card.
1. I used the Enchantment pigment ink set, to stamp the cherries in the center of the card.
I LOVE the 1” cube size of these inks!!!
You can ink up a small portions of the stamp images with multiple colors!
I used the Ruby & Olive pigment ink cubes, and then took my watercolor pencils and blending pen to color in the image!
2. I also used colonial white pigment ink to stamp the cherries as the background image. I LOVE how pigment ink stays bright and bold when it is stamped.
In this case, I wanted to tone the ink down a bit, so I used the Distressed Backgrounds stamp set (mesh image) to stamp over the cherry outline design.
Other products used on this card…
Corner Rounder (new one arriving Aug 1st!)
