I've made a set of five cards using Stampin' Up! Easy Events stamp set and the neutrals colour family card, inks and designer papers. Here's the first one:
This one is on Sahara Sand card, whereas the others are on Crumb Cake. All images have been stamped with Stazon ink and then coloured. Firt of all I used Whisper White reinker - poured a little on a plastic lid and coloured all the images with the ink using a Blender Pen. Leave to dry and then colour over with various inks by squeezing the ink pads together to get residue in the lids. Pick this up with the Blender Pen and colour over the white base. You can do this without the white ink to start but it doesn't give such good coverage.
The inks I used to colour my images are Early Espresso, Chocolate Chip, River Rock and Soft Suede.
to give a little extra decoration without going over the top, I used the Itty Bitty Punch set to create a row of shapes at the base of each card and stuck coordinating Neutrals Designer Papers on the inside of the card to show through.
To make sure they were as even as posssible, I measured 1/2" up from the base and drew a pencil line, punched the first shape and then measured 1/4" along before punching again.
I like this effect and will use it more often now! Looking forward to the weekend as I'm off perusing charity shops tomorrow afternoon with a friend, always manage to find something fab for my home and then Sunday I'm off to collect a dressing table to transform too.
