I finally got around to trying the fabulous reinker wash technique that was going around like wildfire a few years back! And boy is it fun! This card is based on one by Amanda Mertz. We’ll be making it at my Flower Frenzy card class coming up on May 1st. Let me know if you are interested in coming and learning this great technique!
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, All Holidays
Ink: VersaMark, Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Pretty in Pink (reinker), Daffodil Delight (reinker)
Paper: Shimmery White, Pretty in Pink, Chocolate Chip
Other: White Embossing Powder, White Satin Ribbon
The basics for this technique:
Stamp an outline image on shimmery white card stock using VersaMark and emboss with white embossing powder. (Yes, it has to be shimmery white card stock.) This rose from Fifth Avenue Floral is one of the most popular. Spritz with water so you have puddles between the lines. Spritz a little more just to be sure you have enough. Pick up some reinker on the tip of an aqua painter and touch it to one of the puddles. It will spread through the water in that section. Keep doing this until you get the look you want. Be very patient while you wait for it to dry. Cut out your image and attach to your card!
