CardMaker and Clearsnap Hop!

Welcome to the Clearsnap & CardMaker Blog Hop featuring some very fun and shimmery Izink Pigment Inks!

Make sure and comment on all the hop posts along the way because Clearsnap will be doing a giveaway of 6 Izinks on their blog!

If you came here from Steph Ackerman’s blog you are in the right place. If not head on over to the CardMaker blog to start at the beginning.

I added some embossing paste to my background paper with a comb tool. Let dry and then added some Cactus and Jasmine Izink mixed with a little water with a paintbrush.

Next I added a bit of Amethist Izink. Quick and easy background!

I stamped my flower (Impression Obsession H8724 Gentle Rose, phrase is from CL504 Build Your Own Message) and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder. I used Izink inks (Amethist, Volubilis, Cactus, Avacado, Gold. Mimoso and Jasmine) and a little water to watercolor my flower. So pretty and shimmery!

I even colored my ribbon to match with Cactus Izink! I dropped some ink onto the ribbon (little splatters) and let it set for a couple minutes. Then I added a little water (I put the ribbon in a ziplock bag first) and worked it through the ribbon. I heat set it with a heat tool. I initial drips left fun darker areas.

Now hop on over to Meihsia Liu!
