Of course, you can use these Lattice Panels as they come … as Stampin’ Up! have done in their sample in the catalogue. They are part of the “Bloom Where You’re Planted” suite of products on pages 80-81 of the annual catalogue.
But there is so much more you can do with these lovely little Lattice Panels. Here is a card I created for my weekly Whimsy Wednesday Creative Live (click here to see the live) where I inked up the Paper Lattice with White Craft Ink, and added a few brushes of colour to add a vintage look.
And here is another project, also created by simply inking up the Paper Lattice Panel with White Craft Ink. See the full post here.
As you can see, the white craft ink does fade so you end up with a lovely aged ivory sort of look. If you wanted your panel to be a more intense white, you could re-ink once it is dry.
I was intrigued to see what else I could do with these panels.
Paper Lattice + White Craft Ink + Ink Blending
On the left is the original Kraft panel, then in the centre is the panel I inked up with White Craft Ink and allowed it to dry. Then for the panel on the right, I applied a mixture of Bermuda Bay and Just Jade ink over the top of the white ink with an ink blending brush. How gorgeous!
** Note: I would apply your ink to an acrylic block or other non-porous surface before picking up with the Blending Brush. No matter how dry the panel is, the White Craft Ink still transfers to the Blending Brush.
Now what else can we do?
Paper Lattice + White Craft Ink + Clear Embossing Powder
After I applied White Craft ink to the panel, I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. This gives it an enamel look shine, but aged … not new and shiny … love, love, love!
I then applied colour to the embossed panel with sponge daubers. The ink doesn’t really take up because the melted embossing powder is non-porous, but the ink does collect in any little crevices or parts where the embossing hasn’t taken. Polish the excess ink off after applying as it won’t dry on the embossing. It is a very subtle colour change, but really adds to the vintage look.
So let’s try something else.
Paper Lattice + White Embossing Ink + Colour
You can also create a much brighter white by applying White Craft Ink or Versamark to the Lattice Panel, and then heat embossing with White embossing powder… that is the panel on the left.
You can add colour using Ink Pads and Sponge Daubers, however, again because embossing powder is non-porous, it will mostly wipe off. I inked the white embossed panel with Just Jade and Bermuda Bay ink and then wiped off the excess ink with a soft cloth. The ink sort of “stains” the white embossing and stays in any little small speckles and bits that the embossing missed. A very soft shabby chic type look.
But maybe we can take it a step further ….
Paper Lattice + White Embossing Ink + Stampin’ Blends
I wanted a stronger colour on the white embossed panel, so I took the Bermuda Bay and Just Jade Stampin’ Blends and applied colour to one corner of the embossed panel that I had previously inked.
WOW!! It is like Verdigris metal. Those little pits and gaps in the embossing really pick up the colour.
I kept the top left corner as originally inked to show the comparison between the softly inked look and the stronger Stampin’ Blends colour. If you used red/oranges, it would look like rusty metal! LOVE!!!!
I will have fun creating with these panels … if you try this, I would love to see what you create! Pop an image up in my Facebook Group here!
