For my card this week I used one of the brand new release frames Plate 10400 and the sweet “Beach Time 4503-K” Repeat Impressions stamp. The technique is from a Kit & Clowder “create & learn tutorial using alcohol inks. I started by stamping on specialty stamping paper with Versafine Black Onyx Ink, then heat embossing with clear powder. I then colored with Tombow markers. I did use a craft knife to cut out the middle of the frame so I could pop it up and have my sweet image show through.
The Crafty Nurse here sharing more inky goodness with the newly released Stylized Rose image from Technique Junkies April release. This is a fabulous stamp and perfect for so many occasions. I paired it with the “Live, Love, Laugh Frame SD662″ which as you can see fits perfectly with the stylized rose stamp.
The background was created using Copic Various inks blown around with a straw over glossy card stock. To color the roses, I directly applied Tombow markers to the stamp and spritzed with water for a watercolor look.
I hope you’ve all had a chance to visit the Technique Junkies store to check at the April release. See you in a few weeks with more inky goodness.
