Thoughtful Wishes for Colour INKspiration Challenge #167


Thoughtful Wishes Stamp Set has been used for Colour INKspiration challenge #167. The images make great silhouette images when stamped in black over a colour.

Welcome to my blog. Today’s post is for Colour INKspirations Colour Challenge #167. Our inspiration pic for this challenge was chosen by design team member, Bronwyn Eastley. Isn’t this fantastic for a colour challenge … Black, White and one colour (Pretty in Pink).

CI#167 will run for almost two weeks and will end at 7 pm (AEDT) on Monday June 24th.
For more details on how to participate in this fun colour challenge, scroll down to the bottom of the page.

Masking, Blending and Splattering …

Back when I started stamping, inks and stamps where our only tools (along with the magic of heat embossing). I love returning to those techniques and the almost monochromatic colour palette of the Colour INKspiration Challenge #167 seemed the perfect opportunity.

Thoughtful Wishes for CI167

I masked off a section of a Basic White card panel with low tack tape and then used an Ink Blending brush to apply Pretty in Pink ink … heavier tones at the top and lighter towards the bottom. Before removing the tape I splattered the piece with water, which removes the ink in droplets (too much liquid? … soak up the drops with paper towel) and then dry the piece with a heat tool.

Next up I added some white splatter. To create the White Craft Ink liquid for splattering, I popped a couple of drops of ink refill onto an acrylic block and then mixed in a small amount of water.

Once the white ink is dry and the low tack tape is removed, I stamped images from Thoughtful Wishes stamp set with Black Stazon ink. I filled in the open line images with Pretty in Pink ink and a Blender Pen.

I thought the card needed some more contrast splatter, so I mixed up some Black Memento Ink Refill on an acrylic block with a squeeze of Clear Wink of Stella to add shimmer. I added a fairly heft splattering of this shimmery, black ink across the card.

The sentiment is also from Thoughtful Wishes, heat embossed with white embossing powder on black card, die cut with a stitched flagged banner die from Stylish Shapes dies and mounted up with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
