{Festive} Ink Pad Designs

Monday, November 11, 2013



Hello
I have a card today for two challenges.
 

 
 
 
Using my ink pads and a Tim Holtz stencil, I swiped ink onto the paper directly from the ink pad.  Because the stencil material is pretty thick, only small portions of the ink pad make contact with the paper creating thin lines.  After swiping one color I lifted the stencil, shifted it over slightly, and then swiped the second color.  I love the serenity of the colors and design so I decided to leave the front free of a sentiment.  Instead, I chose to embellish and add a sentiment to the inside. 


 
Thanks for coming by.
Have a great week!



Cardstock: PTI White
Stamps: PTI Holiday Lights, Peaceful Poinsettia
Ink: PTI Smokey Shadow, Hawaiian Shores, Pure Poppy
Other: Tim Holtz Stencil, Avery Elle, Sea Glass Ribbon, MS Glitter, Pearls
