Inky Grungy Background with Mica!

Standard

Hello Again,

Thank you for dropping by. Well here is another inky creation inspired by Craft Stamper magazine.

This is the finished article:

But i have made lots that i haven’t finished as cards yet!

So here they are:

They are made by using distress inks to ink up your background. If you want some grungyness then flick water onto the inky paper and blot with paper towel.

For the next step you must wait until any water splashes are dry (as mica sticks to any moisture)

Use a background stamp and distress ink on the dry paper and then sprinkle mica over the top (run in with a brush), Don’t forget to save the excess.

Then stamp away to your hearts content!

Hope you have enjoyed this inky adventure!

See you soon

‘Ikle Inky Quillt!

Standard

Hello Again All,

Well I love inky fingers! So this project was right up my street! It was inspired by an article in Craft Stamper magazine http://www.craftstamper.com/ (I’m sorry i can’t remember which issue).

I inked the piece of cotton lightly, then with a mask on top i inked again (guess what? My Mask has butterflies on!!) and then using Stazon ink stamped my images. I have hand sewn mine because i am rubbish with a sewing machine!

Here are some close-ups

I am thinking a will either use my ‘ikle quilt on a card or scrapbook layout.

Let us know if you like Inky fingers too!

Alice in Wonderland Canvas

Standard

Hello again everyone!

Well Sall loves Alice in Wonderland. Particularly this quote

The Mad Hatter ask s Alice “have I gone mad?”
Alice replies “I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers.But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are”

So inspired with that (and a digital stamp from the Octopode Factory) I created this.

A holiday inspired picture

Standard

We all love holidays and don’t want them to end don’t we? So inspired by that feeling i created this picture!

We picked up a map from the tourist information centre and used the paper as the background, I have circled the beach that this photo was taken at.

I sprayed ink and mica on the background. The paper is from We are Memory Keepers.

Enjoy your crafting!
