Hello to Monday and this week’s hippity hoppers!

Have you ever layered ink colors on a card? It’s a neat technique that gives depth to your stamped images. You can stamp in a light and dark tone, 2 lights, 2 darks or even more than 2 ink colors! The possibilities are pretty open.

Think of all the colors that are in patterned papers today – like I have in my sample below. There are 3 colors: light blue, red and pink. I used 2 similar ink colors when stamping, one light and one dark. If you’re using this combination, the lighter color can be used as a shadow color, background or just as an accent. Open your mind, it really is fun and gets you using more ink pads that you may otherwise have sitting around!

Ranger has a great color strategy in their Adirondack colors. There are lights, brights and earth tones which all complement each other, especially if you want to stay with monochromatics. Fun indeed!

Happy Earth Day! Welcome to the weekend!

I have a fun card to share with you today. It’s a little plump birdie mixed with white and navy sophistication.

The birdie and branch were stamped with dye ink onto the white cardstock then punched out. Using a water pen, I touched the brush tip to the ink pad to get some color on it, then colored the wings, belly and leaves. Go light on squeezing the pen to release water. A little goes a long way especially when you’re doing small areas like this. When you’re done, squeeze the pen to get water to flow into the tip and clean the color onto a paper towel.
