Secret garden using white re-inker technique

Hello, I am a little behind with my blogging this week and have just remembered I still have the class cards to show you from a couple of weeks ago

Both cards used the same technique of painting with the whisper white re-inker as a base. 

For the first card the flowers were stamped onto a separate piece of crumb cake card and heat embossed with white embossing powder. They were coloured in with a wash of whisper white re-inker mixed with a little water and left to dry. The flowers were then painted with a couple of drops of coloured re-inker, again mixed with some water and painted over the top. Colours used bashful blue and summer starfruit.

Stamp sets used are Secret Garden and Sassy Salutations.The sentiment and leaves  were stamped on to plain whisper white card in lucky limeade and marina mist.  This was then run through the perfect polka dots embossing folder

When the painted flowers were dry they were cut out using the framelits and placed on top with dimensionals. 

The second card used the same technique but were stamped and painted directly onto a piece of crumb cake card which was matted and layered with whisper white and raspberry ripple. A piece of gumball green stitched satin ribbon was tied around and placed onto a strip of so saffron punched with scallop trim border.

 Re-inker colours used raspberry ripple and summer starfruit.

A variation of the above card, made into a larger square card. 

Thanks for stopping by
