Guest Twisted Sister at Twisted Sketches

If you follow my blog for some time now, you would have read that I was selected as one of the winner for Twisted Sketch #001 over at Twisted Sketches. Well, that won me a Guest Twisted Sister slot over at the blog and this week, Twisted Sketch #019 is what I was asked to have a go at. The twist this week is INK.

Here's my take.
It's just a simple layout to show how much my little daughter like to imitate or being the "same" as me.

In my layout, I've used the Tim Holtz Distress Ink (my favourite) in a few different ways and love how each one turn out to be.

For this piece, I started with covering the white cardstock with Mustard Seed Distress Ink, then I stamped the images with VersaMark ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. After which, using the ink blending tool, apply Worn Lipstick Distress Ink over the entire piece. The both colours blend in an resulted in kind of like an orange-y colour while the embossed area shows that yellow colour which is applied earlier. Neat.

On the next piece, I created a faux watercolour background. First, I stamped the images with VersaMark ink then embossed it with pearl embossing powder. Then pressing the cardstock to a puddle of Mustard Seed distress ink, Fired Brick distress ink and spritz of water. The embossed area, resist the colours.

For the title, I just rub the ink pad of Broken Chine distress ink directly on Tim Holtz Grungeboard alphabets.

This is just a simple applying of Broken Chine distress ink with the ink blending tool to the journalling tag. I've also inked the edge of the Basic Grey porcelain patterned paper. Both the butterflies were stamped with Broken China distress ink and Faded Jeans distress ink respectively.
