“Ink inspired takes us on an inking journey with wonderful possibilities. Some ideas may be new to you, some will be old favourites and some will have you reaching for your stash. No matter what, I hope you are inspired to try some new ideas, to use your inks, to experiment, to play, to learn, but above all to have fun on your creative journey. ” ~ Jowilna Nolte
Above, I created colourful ink dots on white cardstock using Memento Dew Drops and sponge daubers. For the top layer, I stenciled white circles with Brilliance Moonlight Dew Drop and a sponge dauber.
Below, I transformed my inked piece with Memento Nautical Blue Dew Drop by inking directly over my work. The Brilliance Moonlight Dew Drop creates a wonderful resist effect.
Layering using your Dew Drop inks is fun and easy. Pick some colours and stamp onto a plastic packet. Mist the ink on the plastic packet with water. Flip the packet over and stamp the colour onto white cardstock. Repeat to fill your cardstock with colour. You can use your heat gun to dry the layers in between but I like leaving the ink to dry naturally.
This is how I used a piece of inked cardstock, to create an interesting background. Select a few VersaMagic Dew Drops and one at a time dab the ink onto your craft sheet and mist with water. Dip your paper into the ink and lift. While the ink is still wet, repeat with a second colour and then a third colour and then dry with a heat gun.
Use a combination of navy and black VersaMagic Dew Drops to add stencilling detail over your background. Stamp a sentiment or phrase onto your background using StazOn ink.
Create a beautiful rainbow by directly sweeping ink across a piece of old book paper using a selection of Memento Dew Drops. To finish, mix 1 drop of Delicata White Shimmer with water and paint a thin layer over the inked background to create a shimmer effect.
