It’s no secret that I am a Tsukineko lifelong ink junkie and fan – good quality inks are their game and they are at the top of it. So today I am showing you how I use my favourite inks to create a beautiful shiny village.
I use my VersaMark Ink pad for embossing and techniques because it is perfect for all kinds of techniques and not just an embossing ink pad. And today I am teaming it with my Couture Creations Anna Griffin Mix and Match Pigments.
Select your colours to work with, I chose the pink, mint and yellow.
Stamp a shadow image onto the smooth side of your white AC Cardstock using VersaMark Ink.
Use a small soft paint brush and lift some pigment powder onto the brush. Dab the powder with the brush onto the inked area.
[box type=”bio”]TIP: Don’t brush the powder on as this may cause the ink and powder to mix and cause streaks. If you dab the powder onto the ink it sticks to the powder and won’t smudge or cake together.
Once done, use a larger soft paint brush and dust off any excess powder from your image and cardstock.
Ink the line image using VersaFine Onyx Black and stamp over the shadow image.
Lightly mist the image with water to set the pigment powder. This will prevent them from wiping off of your cardstock.
[box type=”bio”]TIP: Pigment powders that do not contain Gum Arabic tend to wipe off and need to be set with water or a fixative spray. Hair spray will also do the trick.
Create an entire village of colourful houses to use on a card or layout – a fun element with some bling to add to your next project.
