Fun with Ink, Straws and Stamps
Two posts in one week! I'm on a roll, haha....
I'm back to show you what I did with the photo papers with blown inks. Remember these? Of course you do! It was only yesterday, after all.
Here are the cards I made with some of them. I love quick cards.
I used a metal frame for my sentiment on this one.
A silver clock brad with real clock hands finished off this card.
To be honest, I took some markers to touch up the inks on this card.
In hindsight I would not spray the shimmer mist on top of the ink to make it more fluid, as it doesn't work well on photo paper at all. It leaves a film on top, especially noticeable if you use too much. Since I used a stamp over some of the cards, it didn't show, which is lucky for me.
I think they turned out okay - what do you think?
Have a good weekend!
