Wow...summer is now in Northern Japan! Thank goodness, too...I was beginning to think it forgot about us all the way up here. ;)
Unfortunately with great weather comes less craft/computer time for me. I usually end up outside throwing balls to my kids who are just starting baseball season. I actually LOVE baseball, so it is as much fun for me as it is for them. :)
Now...on to why you really came to my blog...LOL. I was seeing a lot of this "reinker" technique all over the blogisphere. I just knew I had to try it for my in-law's Anniversary card. They were thrilled with the results.
It took all I could do to not add anything to the bottom right corner. My DH kept saying "less is more"!! Oh, maybe just a little piece of ribbon...or paper piercing...:)
Stamps: Fifth Avenue Floral, Watercolor Garden, unknown sentiment
Paper: Shimmery White, Rose Red, White, Wild Wasabi DP, Close to Cocoa
Ink: Rose Red, Regal Rose, Wild Wasabi, Close to Cocoa, Barely Banana
Accessories: rhinestones :)
In case you are wondering how I did it...I used shimmery white cardstock, stamped the image in white craft ink and sprinkled it with white embossing powder, heat to set. I then misted my paper with water. I took my barely banana reinker, put some in my ink pad lid, and picked up the color with my aqua pen. You just barely touch the paper with the brush tip and it takes off! I repeated the process with the other colors. At first, it did not look very pretty, but once it dried I was much happier!
As always, thank you for taking the time to visit!
