Friday Focus — Distress Inks #1 & Online Card Classes Flash Sale

Hi all! Happy Friday! Before I get to the card and video for today, I wanted to give you a heads up. :)

We’re having a Flash Sale at Online Card Classes this weekend. All past classes are $5 off the regular price. So if you’ve been wanting to try out a class, now is the time!

For today’s video I wanted to start a new Friday Focus miniseries focusing on Distress Inks. I think they are so fun and there are about a million different ways to use them. I played with them tonight and this is what I came up with…

To try the bands of color, I first inked up the Wide Stripes background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, sprayed it with a bit of water, and pressed some watercolor paper on the stamp. Then I took the stamp and stamped it onto a Craft Sheet, leaving droplets of color on the Craft Sheet. I picked up the droplets of color with a new piece of watercolor paper and it created these fun stripes of splotchy color.

Be sure to watch the video below if none of that made sense. LOL! :)

Anyhow, enjoy the video!

Copic Markers & Newton’s Nook Flirty Flamingos – Color Wednesday #50

Hi all!

Whew! It’s been a few days since I’ve posted here at my blog. So sorry for my absence! I was out of town over the weekend and am just now getting back into the swing of things. Is it like that for you guys, too, when you return home after a few days away? It’s like my brain is still on vacation. :)

Anyhow, for today’s Color Wednesday card and video I thought it would be fun to use a new stamp set from Newton’s Nook called Flirty Flamingos. These little guys are too cute! The stamps are from their latest release and I got to play with them for their blog hop last week over at the Simon blog (CLICK HERE to see my card).

I stamped and colored the flamingo with Copic Markers, and created a background with Distress Inks in Antique Linen, Brushed Corduroy, and Tumbled Glass.
