Rock N Roll Technique with Distress and Dye Inks

 Hello Crafters! 

Happy Friday!
Whoo Hoo. 

Today's cards are super quick because let's be honest sometimes you need a fast one. For me it's usually because I have forgotten and I need to make it last minute.
Story of my life. 


We're using the rock n roll technique to add shading to out balloon bouquets. You can do this technique with pretty much any ink you own. I did my two examples with dye ink and distress inks. Just make sure you're working on watercolor paper for the distress inks. 


All you need to do this is two ink colors in the same color family, one light and one dark. I stamped my circle one time with the light ink. Then I inked it up again with the light ink but held it on an angle so that only the edge of the circle went into the dark ink. It's super easy and can add fun effects. You don't have to stamp it once it the lighter ink but I think it gives me a more blended result. 


With the distress inks I skipped stamping in the lightest ink first. Distress inks stamp splotchy regardless so I felt no need to do that stamp. I just inked with the lightest color, held it at an angle and got the edges in my darker color, stamped it down. BOOM. Shaded balloon. 
Once it's stamped I do like to go in with a little bit of water and a small paint brush to help them blend. 

You can see both cards from start to finish and hear about Peanut's first day of camp in the video below. 


It's pretty easy to see the difference between the two inks. The dye inks dry back softer and smoother while distress inks are much brighter. Their shading is also more noticeable. Either way I think it's a simple fun technique to try! 


Thank you guys so much for stopping by! 
I'll be back tomorrow with another video!

Alcohol Ink Stencil Lift with Gold Foil Accents: June Pretty Pink Posh Hop

 


Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to day two of the Pretty Pink Posh June Release Hop! 
If you've been hopping along you should have arrived from the amazing Dana Kirby   If you're Just stopping by you can head over to the Pretty Pink Posh Blog so you don't miss a thing! 

Pretty Pink Posh is generously giving away four $25 gift cards to the store across the blog hop from today and yesterday. You have until 6/17/2019 to comment for your chance to win. The winner will be announced on the Pretty Pink Posh Blog. 

Okay ya'll this tropical release had me all giddy but ultimately you know I couldn't resist the flowers. I had to use those hibiscus!


I was chatting with my crafty friend and she sent me some pictures of her experiments with Alcohol Pearls. I've had mine for awhile and just haven't used them. I figured it was about time to change that! 


I started by dropping some Alcohol Blending solution on my Yupo paper then added 4 different yellows, greens, and blues. I knew I wanted it to be a background for the flowers and this color combo felt like a great match! I let it dry for quite awhile before I added the gold foiling. You can see an entire video with that process here. I love the gold foil accents but I wanted to try a more subtle way to add interest. 


I decided to try a stencil technique I saw Jennifer McGuire do quite a while back. You can see here full video here. It's super easy and fun! I laid my stencil over my background then dipped a foam ink blender into some alcohol blending solution. I swirled the foam over the background to remove some of the color and leave the stencil impression. It's really subtle because that's what I wanted but you can get really dramatic with it. Also, I didn't remove or damage my gold foil at all.  


As my focal point I stamped, copic colored, and fussy cut my flowers and leaves. I opted for a bright yellowish orange so the colors would pop off the background but still be complimentary. 

Here's a couple close ups of the foil and stenciling.  


Foil is so hard to photograph but it's so pretty in real life it's worth it. 

You know the deal, there's a video but it ain't done yet :) 

Your next stop on the hop is the amazing Eloise Blue   

Thank you so much for stopping by!
