Got a little inky today. 🙂 And I wanted to share a new card!
This card just happens to made in response to the latest Ingenious Inking challenge with the My Favorite Things Design Team. We were challenged this time to create something cool with resist!
I created that whole colorful background panel with an embossed resist technique. And I did a little masking too. 😉
The process went a bit like this.
I started out by embossing the Abstract Background Stamp pattern with white embossing powder onto cardstock. Then I set a couple sticky notes onto the panel and gently sponged ink onto it.
I removed the sticky notes and got something like this.
I ended up with something like this.
And then I just repeated the sticky note and inking process over and over until my panel was completely covered with ink. It took a little time, but I think it turned out pretty cool!
So I used the panel really as a patterned paper for my card.
It seemed a little plain by just using the paper so I added the sequins and star. It’s a little hard to tell but I did add a little vellum under the star. I felt like it just helped mute the paper a little and made the star stand out a little more.
So that’s what I have for you today. Be sure to bop over to the MFT Blog to see who else else got inky today.
And be sure to check out the list below for clickable links to products available from MFT that I used to make this card.
Thanks for stopping by today, guys!
