Hey friends! I’m over on the Miss Ink Stamps blog today with a trio of super quick and awesome cards to share with you. This is a really fun way to use any of your large background stamps, no coloring but awesome colorful impact.
Here’s a quick look at the trio I made today. Now, these are all Halloween-ish color schemes when you look at them together but they don’t have to be, especially for this stamp set and the sentiments I chose. However, these colors are completely where my heart is right now so it was super fun to play with them!
Because of the height of the background stamp I was using, I masked off 3 1/2 inches down from the top on each of these panels. Then I blended the following two colors in distress oxide ink on each one:
seedless preserves and villainous potion
carved pumpkin and crackling campfire
twisted citron and forest moss
Then, I removed the mask and stamped the awesome toilet papered house from Roll With It on each one in black ink. I used VersaFine for this because it stamps detail wonderfully and sits on the oxide ink without getting chalky.
Once all of the houses were stamped, I came in with a different sentiment on each panel just below the masked line. Then I used the two toilet paper roll images in the set to add just a little something fun.
I feel like these inks take a moment to dry so I let them sit and then adhered each one to a white card base.
I wanted these cards for specific people but the process totally sparked my creative brain and I want to try the same technique with literally all of my awesome Miss Ink Stamps backgrounds. Wouldn’t this be an amazing, easy to mass produce, technique for your Christmas cards? Definitely stay tuned because those are coming!
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
