NEW VIDEO – Ink Smooshing With Lindy’s Magical Powders

I’m back with a NEW Card Making VIDEO.  I just received an order of stamps and dies from Simon Says stamps.  I couldn’t resist stopping my house painting to have a little fun with them.  So, today we have Ink Smooshing with Lindy’s Magical Powders….I end up making two cards, hope you like them.

All of the art pieces and the card front are done in Canson 140 lb cold pressed watercolor paper.  I find this paper really absorbs the colors well.

Ink Smooshing with Lindy's Magical Powders

Again I have to apologize for black and white paint on my hands, we are in the middle of a renovation on our house…..Funny thing, by the time I’m finished making all these pieces, I also have green and blue fingertips, so it didn’t really matter, haha.  If you have new nails, you might want to try rubber gloves for this.

Also, I’m still adding to my stack of birthday cards, but these cards would be great for any occasion even masculine birthdays.

Card Making Supplies used:

Start by die cutting all the pieces from watercolor paper.

Next, using the Lindy’s magical powders, Ink Smoosh all the pieces to the desired colors.

Then, Use the Misti to white heat emboss the Leaf Edges images onto the 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ watercolor paper card fronts.

Finally, layer all the pieces together, add them to the card.  Embellish with Moss and Studio Katia Magic Pearls.

Card Making Supplies used:

Start by creating the card pieces the same as card #1.  Instead of the bird, die cut the dragonfly.

Color the dragonfly in Sweet Violet Purple Teal and Tibetan Poppy Teal.

Finish as above

Not show in the video:

After I had the cards finished and while photographing them, I decided I need to add some gold dots to the mushrooms, edges of the leaves and around the wings on the bird and dragonfly.

I mixed up some Gold Gansai Tambi to do this.
