Ink Play: Definitely Dahlia

Good Morning, Inker’s!

It’s Saturday, and the air outside is getting a bit too brisk for this chick…
that makes it the perfect day to put on some soup, and get creative!

Ink Play: Definitely Dahlia

Ink Play - Definitely Dahlia

For this card I went with the Baby Wipe Technique, it’s an oldie, but a goodie!

 I love experimenting with ink, and it’s always fun to revisit a great technique! Today I used three ink colors to get this look…Crushed Curry, Elegant Eggplant and Cajun Craze. I tend to use the same colors, so I pulled out some of my least used colors and challenged myself to use one of them as the focal point in a card. Today’s winner was Elegant Eggplant (which I still call Eggplant Envy).  Even though I love the color purple, this ink (or card stock) rarely gets used around here, I can see that will have to change!

The liner for the envelope is made using copy paper and the “lines” from the Stamp A Bag set.  I stamped off each time I inked up before stamping on the liner piece, I wanted a lighter color to go with the dahlia.

As many of you know, I can be a bit of a clutz in the craft room, I’m usually wearing more ink that what makes it onto the card, and often find myself on the floor looking for lost items. Today’s project is no exception…the cute little butterfly was added to cover up the nice blue thumbprint that I somehow left on the card (after I washed my hands!) from another project. It was in my stash, already made, so I thought why not… turns out it added a nice pop of color, don’t you think?  Crisis averted!

Until next time…
