Exploring

For today’s post I’m featuring NEW product from the Annual Inspirations Idea Book.

The first project is this scrapbook page based off this sketch by Rochelle Spears.

A couple tips and tricks for this layout:

#1- If you’re trying to stamp a larger image and are looking for a crisp, clear image Archival Black Exclusive Ink™ is your best friend. I love that I can use my normal Spritz Cleaner to clean the archival ink from the stamp {versus StazOn™ Cleaner which I find to be greasy and messy, but absolutely necessary when using StazOn™ Ink}.

#2-Paper piece your images as I did with the “I want to make memories…” stamped image. It’s simple to do and adds so much dimension to your project. I simply stamped the image three times. Twice in Archival Black Exclusive Ink™ and once in Glacier Exclusive Ink™. I then cut out the Glacier (blue) globe and the Black “world” and layered them atop each other. I added a little 3D Foam Tape to the “world” to help it pop off the page.

#3- Give your titles and subtitle dimension by stamping them multiple times in different ink colors. I stamped my title using Glacier Exclusive Ink™ and then followed by stamping it again with Black Exclusive Ink™. By just slightly offsetting the colors it gives a shadowed appearance. I used the same concept using Flaxen Exclusive Ink™ and Black Exclusive Ink™ with the “This way, That way” stamps.

August SOTM

I wanted to show how versatile this stamp set can be! Can you see which image I used to create the petals?

CTMH: August SOTM What A Hoot!

I do not consider myself an expert when it comes to coloring/blending alcohol markers. I really hope to improve as time goes on, but I came across a few helpful hints as I made this card.

#1-If you are unfamiliar with alcohol markers, they are blendable. Meaning you can create multiple colors and shadow effects by layering different colors on top of each other.

#2- Dye Ink is not your friend when using alcohol markers. You will want to use Pigment Ink or Archival Ink and be sure it is COMPLETELY dry before coloring.

#3- If you’re short on time and need to color immediately use a craft heater to set {dry} the ink.
