My project this time features the beautiful walnut inks again, After spraying the ink, when still wet, I added salt to get this background. A neat background for a leaf, I thought!
The image has been stamped with StazOn Timber Brown on a seperate piece of cardstock, and cut out. I've coloured it with the walnut ink I've used to create the background. To add some gloss to the leaf, I added some Goosebumps with a brush.

I also did a second project, couldn't help it, hehe,
I had a nice play with these products!
Here I used the beautiful pigment inks and Brilliance inks from Imagine Crafts:
I swiped the pigment inkpad- Serenade Green shades - over the cardstock, and inked up the beautiful  Distressed Diamond background stamp from Magenta with Brilliance Cosmic Copper and stamped it right over the background. After stamping there was a lot of pigment ink on my  background stamp, and I used that to make another background, which also turned out very nice. I'll show that background on an ATC in the last bloghop post on the 21st. Promise!
I also stamped a script, Love is a promise with the Brilliance ink. The Brilliance ink shimmers, didn't know these inks were so great, they've been in my stash for a while and I haven't used it before, shame on me!
The pigment inks didn't really dry on the surface, so I thought I'd clear emboss it. IT TURNED OUT SO BEAUTIFUL!
The Samara stamp has been stamped on a seperate piece of cardstock, and cut iut.
LOVE how this turned out!

Happy hopping!

 Welcome to a week of fantastic collaboration between IMAGINE Crafts and Magenta Rubber Stamps! Both companies are excited to share with you their products, from the latest inks from IMAGINE Crafts to the newest Fall and Holiday stamp releases from Magenta.    

    I've used the Walnut ink sprays to create the background and colour the stamped images. 
The how-to:
Spray the inks on your craftsheet, swipe you cardstock through it, and see the magic that has happened! Leave to dry. Stamp the images with StazOn on a different piece of cardstock, cut it out. Color it with the same colors as you've used to make the background. Add some goosebumps to the wings to give it some gloss! Do some script stamping with StazOn in the background. Adhere the stamped images to the background. Draw a doodle line around the edge.

I also created this ATC, the same techniques:

Monoprint plus PanPastel...



......is a gorgeous combination. 

The blue is PanPastel, the shadow and the script. 
The monoprint already had a little bit of blue, so that's why I added this with a blue shade PanPastel -  Panpastel Phthalo Blue Shade 560.3
