Layered Inking Technique

I am loving the new "Clean & Simple 4 - Techniques made simple". Oh boy, do they show us some awesome techniques for clean and simple style. 

I do admit that some of the techniques are familiar but those have gotten an awesome twist...just fabulous!

This is actually the first card I started on today but due to long drying time you first get to see it now. 

This is the Layered Inking technique shown by Jennifer McGuire in class today. 


First I inked up my white front panel completely with Hero Arts Shadow Ink which is a dye ink. According to J. McGuire the HA Shadow Ink is perfect for this technique. 

Then I added a bit of darker blue with my ink blending tool. 

Now to the interesting part. First I used fun foam to create a stamp from the Antlers die. This DIY stamp I used to stamp with VersaMark watermark ink on my coloured front panel. 

Now the waiting time begins. Reasons is that the VersaMark will come to life if you wait a while....well I waited almost 4 hours before taking this photo. But it works! 


I then added a die-cut tiny little deer and the Dymo sentiment. 

Last thing was to add dots of black enamel. 

I promise this will be my last card for today. 

With this card I am participating in:

  19. Rigtig rigtig flot. Er vild med farverne (de må straks på min ønskeseddel:) ) Stemplede du med versamarken mens sværten stadig var "våd"?, det gjorde jeg, utroligt at det har ligget i 4 timer uden at blive helt vildt kraftigt. Mit lå nok 1 time i alt, og det blev meget kraftigt især da jeg "tørrede" papiret.
    Igen rigtig flot også med de sorte dots.
