Over at Just Us Girls today Sue V has challenged us to a great Technique.
It’s called Inked Die Cuts and you can find a helpful video right HERE!
Isn’t her card wonderful!!!
If you just can’t get the hang of it, she is offering an alternate technique,
to sponge ink on the die cut while it is still in the die to shade around
your image or sentiment and give you a clean white/light border.
So are you up for the challenge?
I kept it clean and simple this week, but really enjoyed trying something new!
I used a Colorbox pigment ink called Treasure to ink up my spellbinders oval die.
I had to give it a second go around as I had ink everywhere
but on the die the first time around. LOL
The heart EF is from Stampin UP.
The sentiment and arrow is from Michaels.
Now here are the links to get you started!
And don’t forget to visit Melissa….our Guest Designers blog too!
