So while creating and playing with my Alcohol Ink and Gina K. Fancy Foils, I decide I wanted to try using Gina K.’s Amalgam Ink on one of the panels. Well, I inked up my stamp and after I stamped it, I though… it didn’t work. But what I didn’t realize, was that what ever the Amalgam Ink was made of, it reacted to the Alcohol Inks. I was able to do a Ink Lift with Gina K. Amalgam Inks. I was so excited to share it with you! Here is a video I made to share the fun with you all! I do hope you will try it soon! 🙂

Here are two cards I did some ink lifting on!

Up Next is Hugs and Wildflowers Stamp Set and matching Dies! I love creating with this New Set by: Lisa. I wanted it to look like watercolor and a bit whimsical so I did off set on the flowers line art and the solid image.

Monthly Mix Challenge!

This Months Challenge is Hosted by: Mindy Eggen!

Her challenge is to create some Ombre Inked blending for your card. Here is what I came up with! I used Gina K. Designs Bold and Blooming Stamp Set

Along with some Oxide Inks for my background. I Blended them together with Picket Fence – Life Changing Blending Brushes.

I love how easy these brushes are to blend ink and to clean up! I don’t have the full set of Oxide Inks but I do have some and here are the three I used for this card! Fossilized Amber, Twisted Citron, & Peacock Feathers.

I used a little water and some reindeer – Black Onyx to add the droplets on the background!

There is still a couple of weeks left to join us in the Monthly Mix Challenge, and remember there will be 3 winner picked! Gina K. Designs a $25.00 Gift Certificates for those winners! ❤ To Join in the Challenge click – Gina K. Designs Monthly Mix Challenge

Tent Topper Card Video

I used the the same supplies as the card above, just added a extra butterfly instead of the lady bug, and then made it a Tent Topper Card.

I have been having lots of fun creating with these New Sets and Glitz Glitter Gel. On this card I used the Crazy Daisy StampnStencil Stamp Set, & Stencil. I used White Pigment Ink and some brushed and applied the ink over the stencil, then stamped the Crazy Daisy Flower in the White Ink as well. Grabbed my Prismacolored Pencils and colored the Flower and Leaves. Used a Gel Pen to add little highlights to the flower and stencil. Stamped the Greeting in Jet Black Amalgam Ink.

Crazy Daisy!
