More Inky Makes For The One Stamp Event

Good morming friend and followers old and new.  Today I have another couple of cards made for this weekend's One Stamp Event over at Oak House Studio.  Many thanks to all who took part, left comments on the Oak House Blog and here on mine too.

This first card has a very vibrant inky background.  The card was photographed standing on the remaining sprayed background which I may use to cut out some die cut butterflies or flowers.  The inky background was created by spraying Colour Chemistry inks randomly onto a pearlised pattern paper.  When completely dry I cut out my three squares, stacked them on top of each other and stamped and embossed the large outline daisy.  Each square was then mounted onto black card and layered with sticky fixers.

I die cut the left hand border and backed this with a strip of inky background paper, stamped a greeting at the bottom of the card and attached the inky daisy.  Another quick CAS card with the benefits of getting inky making the background.

I used both the outline and the solid pallete stamp for the background on this card, gesso was used to stamp the background flowers.  When it dried I blended the pink and blue pigment inks over the whole card.  The gesso daisies appear like magic as you add the coloured inks.  The outline daisy was stamped onto plain card with black ink  and heat embossed.  It was coloured with the pink and blues, fussy cut and added to the card.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed onto the card to finish.

I used the following materials for these cards:

Once again thank you for all your lovely comments and good luck to anyone who left a comment on the Oak House Blog for chance to win £100 of Oak House Goodies.
