At least I’m not Gizmo! That would be bad! (though, it would fit right in with how 2020 is going, right?)
So, I decided I was going to add some water to my ink! So I grabbed a piece of acetate and picked a paper, and then chose an ink. Believe it or not, both of these cards were done with the same ink color, and that was fern!
So, let’s walk through the steps, shall we?
So, first I grabbed a couple of pieces of white daisy cardstock, and used some versamark ink and stamped the little mushroom scene from the Gnome Matter stamp set. (LOVE that set!) and embossed with some white powder. Then I put some fern ink directly onto some acetate and grabbed a water brush, added some water, and then swirled it around. I then smooshed the ink and water mix onto the paper with the embossing. I dabbed it a few times, then did some heat setting. Then, a bit more ink and a smidge more water, mixed, and smooshed again some more! Then a bit more drying and the first one was done.
I decided to see what would happen if I put some ink on the back side of the paper, directly, and then added some water from behind. It gave a completely different result! But, still so fun!
I ended up getting more browns from my inks than I expected! A bit of red, too!
So, to finish the card, I cut the circle out with the solid circle from the shaker window and confetti die set. I cut the frame from that set from white daisy cardstock. I used the B&T from the Mix In paper pack. I stamped a sentiment from the set on vellum with the versamark and white embossing powder. I lined the B&T with two rows of the white and gold ribbon (retired and sold out!), then popped up the circle with some foam tape. Then I tied a double bow, and attached it with a mini glue dot.
The cards were so simple and easy to do! Super fun, and no two cards will be the same!!
