Just Add Ink Challenges

This card combines a few things. First of all, the current JAI sketch challenge plus an earlier colour challenge and finally a technique I wanted to do for my stamp club next weekend called emerging colour. Let me tell you how I did this card. First of all I took a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and sponged random sections of three colours, More Mustard, Rose Red and Sage Shadow. Next I took the gorgeous new Medallion stamp set from the Mini Catalogue and stamped it in Versamark over the top. I quickly poored over clear embosssing powder and heat set it. Then I inked up my brayer with Sahara Sand and brayered over the top and wiped the excess ink from the embossed image - wha la! So easy but very effective. I enjoyed working with this colour combination too. The tag is from the new Sizzlit 4-pack Dies in the Mini Catalogue. Sentiment comes from the Occasional Greetings stamp set in the main catalogue. Thanks for looking :)

I think I'm going to have to get this stamp!! This is just one of so many great cards I've seen using the medallion stamp and I'll have to try that technique too

This is fantastic! I love the idea of sponging on the chalks, clear embossing, then brayering over the top - no random powdery bits, and a great end result. Love the technique; thanks for sharing.
