Distress Inking & Mask Stamping

Good Evening Everyone

I've been playing with my distress inks and my IndigoBlu stamps (no surprise there then!) and thought you may like to see what I did.... and, more importantly, how I did it...

I've used

Wee Stamps Digi Image

This is what I did

  1. Printed the digi image onto my super smooth white card
  2. Trimmed the card to 14cm square
  3. Punched a circle from thick cardstock
  4. Using a removable tape pen, masked over the image
  5. Inked the card (lightly) with Stormy Sky, all the way up to the circle.
  6. Inked from the circle outwards with the Brushed Corduroy, to create a soft brown shadow.
  7. Inked the outer edges again, this time with Faded Jeans, heavier on the corners and edges.
  8. Stamped the Stylised flowers using the Brushed Corduroy, blotting once onto scrap paper to soften the colour.
  9. Punched the butterfly from thick  cardstock.
  10. Inked through the negative of the butterfly punch with Faded Jeans, effectively using it as a stencil.
  11. Removed the punched circle and voila! A lovely clean image surrounded by even more lovely inkyness! :o)

And here are three little photos to show you :o)
Hope you find this useful... I love this technique!

All I have to do now is take a photo of the image, coloured in!

Happy Crafting!
