CS Take It Make It: Watercoloring with Inks

Hello everyone!! I’m here with CS Take It Make It: Take a Technique Challenge Inspiration for June.

Our theme is Take a Technique: Lets Get Inky!!

For this month’s challenge the technique we would like you to use more then one type of ink on your project (ink pads, ink sprays, stains, acrylic inks, etc.)  Or more then one color of ink on your project…and don’t forget to include stamping somewhere too!!

This should be super fun to see what you come up with.

Take a look at my card:

Truth (CS Take It Make It)

My new Alex and Ani Art Infusion Feather bracelet is the inspiration for my card this week. When I saw this bracelet, I knew I had to have it.  Its purple and the feather was so pretty.  I immediately wanted to make a card that represented my bracelet.

I stamped the feather from Papertrey Ink What the Doodle: Feather Mini Stamp Set using Versafine Ink.

Then I sprinkled Colorbox Sterling Silver Embossing Powder and heat set it.

Then I used Distress Ink Seedless Preserve to watercolor the feather and the card. I heat set the card then colored more ink on top give the different saturation of this pretty purple color.

Once the card dried, I stamped the sentiment using Concord and 9th Sophisticated Script stamp set using Versafine Black Ink.

The feather represents Truth, Light, and Virtue!!

“Keep Your Heart Light” is what the motto!

So what do you think? I love how this card turned out.

We have two prizes to offer this month, the first is our sponsor prize. This winner will be chosen randomly from all of the entries in the challenge! The sponsor for June: PaperArtsy!



Prize: 5 bottles of Infusions

Infusions are water soluble particles with 2 components: dye color pigment suitable for paper/ fabric, mixed with Walnut Stain. The color powder particles dissolve faster than the walnut crystals, so you can control the color-to-brown stain ratio!

Now if that isn’t a reason to play along I’m not sure what is!!

I can’t wait to see what you come up with.
