Inky Techniques

I had some fun this morning using a new technique from Jennifer McGuire's new Holiday Thinking Inking video.
For the red panel I trimmed a white piece of cs to size and using Jennifer's example covered it with Fired Brick Distress ink. Then I spritzed some Perfect Pearls water on the Holly Flourish stamp and stamped it on the red piece. It was fun to watch the stamped pattern emerge as it dried. For the background I tapped some Antique Linen Distress ink on my craft sheet and spritzed on some PP water. I used this to ink the Holly Flourish and stamped it on the white panel. The tree was stamped with Artprint Brown Memories ink, some Crushed Olive Distress ink was blended on, then Vintage Photo around the edges. I stamped the Holly Flourish one last time with Galaxy Gold Brilliance ink on the card base. I love it when I can make a card with this much color that uses only white card stock.

Ephesians 3:17 ~ "Then Christ will make His home in your hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God's love and keep you strong!"
