Inky Stuff

Sorry i didn't blog yesterday, i had planned to but by the time i went to take a piccy of my card the battery died - typical esp as i didn't have my charger at work, but never mind!!
I have spent the last few days experimenting with inks, sprays and messy stuff and have to say i am soooo loving it and want more - now!! I have two things to show you up first is a lil card that i might turn into a tag...
This was a bit of a experiment as i had not really done anything in this style much before. This is the first thing i have made with my fabby new PanPastels. You may have heard about them but if not they are a new medium to hit the craft industry... they are great for creating backgrounds and you can add colour anywhere to your products. Tehy are very similar to distress inks and can be used to create the same style look. They are so creamy and sooooo easy to use and you are hardly need any to create a lot of colour! I infact only used one colour here and managed to make it blend rather than using several colours if i was using inks! I will def have to get more of these! The stamps are my new Studio 490 set, pretty pricey at around £23 but i LOOOVE them and they stamp perfectly everytime too.

My next card is one i made last night...
I am really pleased how this turned out as it was literally a plain white piece of card to start with!
I created the background with some Ink Sprays and left to dry as i left my heatgun in the shop! I then added lots of bits and pieces from stencils, stamps etc. The flowers are Steampunk Flowers from Creative Expressions, we will be expecting these in the shop soon!
