New challenge - Inky

Well was not impressed with this card and had I not left it till the last minute I would have started again, anyway I am not a messy inky person, can't stand inky fingers but thought I would have a go, the first stamp pad I tried fell to pieces lol, I them used a momento pad in silver over textured black paper and dabbed round the edge in lilac, the next layer on top of the mirror card was again white textured paper which I went over with the lilac ink pad.  The colours are much darker on the photo than in true life, Anita's stamp stamped with the same lilac ink pad.  Flowers were mounted on the corner to take away the bareness.

  4. GLOVES are a good thing when using ink...the industrial know...for cleaning drains or the ones vets use!!! Or get a "little-man" in to do the messy bits of your card! lol. Still gorgeous though Julie!! XX

  5. Make sure you 'cover up' I managed to dye a really nice lilac skirt with a large blob of Starburst Stains (I can see where the stains part of the name comes from now) when I made my CCM DT card.

    Looking forward to working with you Julie.

    Hugs Lin

  6. Now why don't I think of using textured paper! Beautiful card.
