- color-layering : get your multi-step color layering stamps out to play!
- rainbow : it's obvious, isn't it?
- ink-blending: use 3-4 colors at least to make your project colorful
- coloring: whether it's watercoloring, copic-coloring or coloring pencils...you take the pick!
- anything that involves multiple colors/coloring (soft, pastel, bold, bright...sky is the limit)
In my stash, I have several backgrounds I made some time ago while playing with new product. One of them was a scrap of glossy card with a "smoothed" alcohol ink background that definitely fit the third of the options above since I used 8 colors of Ranger alcohol inks in the making of it!
Now the panel that resulted was a little small for my usual 5 1/8 x 7 card and trimming it to fit a smaller card would remove some of the color so...
I decided to play with placement, use Archival" Jet Black" ink only and let the "smooth" be the star!
I sued my MISTI to place my stamp on both the colored paper:
- Stamps: Hero Arts"Artistic Fern" (part of the Sizzix/Hero Arts Textured Impressions set 657764) and "Secial Things..." (F2459)
- Inks: Alcohol Inks "Botanical", "Citrus", "Raspberry", "Cool Periwinkle", "Cloudy Blue", "Poppyfield", "Watermelon", "Gold": Ranger "Blending Solution"; Archival "Jet Black"
- Papers: Glossy white card stock; The Paper Studio Value Pack "ivory"
- Adhesives: Vival las Vegas "Miracle Tape"
