Hello there my lovely readers
It's been a while since I posted or indeed made anything which could be posted. Truth be told, I'm feeling a bit dicky at the moment. I pulled a muscle in my back over the Easter break. It healed very quickly but then other ailments followed. It didn't stop me from attending boxing lessons with Nick though. I felt sore from using muscles that have never, ever had to be used before, which was to be expected. However, the nausea and headaches have persisted.
So I really haven't felt like being creative this week. Until today. Today I thought I'd try an experiment with inks.
In the online world of card making, watercolour is the current trend that's been around for a few months. And indeed, having seen so many beautiful examples, it can't help but to rub off and inspire me eventually.
So I grabbed some white card, a pot of water and a brush. I didn't reach for my watercolour paints though. Instead, I grabbed my bottles of acrylic ink (you may recall I used them to produce some beautifully vibrant backgrounds for art journal pages). They are gorgeously intense in their saturation and it only took a few droplets of each colour which I swiped at with my brush.
I didn't take a "before" photo of the colour sheet but the scrap left behind after I ran it through the die machine should give you a good enough idea.
I stuck the die cut to a piece of black card and stamped a sentiment in the bottom right hand corner and added white embossing powder. And that's as easy as it can be. And I love the vibrant rainbow of colour against the black.
Right, off to rest my weary head. Hopefully I'll be back in full creative force soon
And for those of you in the UK, hope you have a fabulous bank holiday weekend!!!
