Hey crafty peeps… Nicole here and I get to share this fun tutorial on Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. I am thrilled to be a Guest Designer for Ranger with all these vibrant Mini Archival Inks and stretch beyond Jet Black.
This tutorial is an experiment for me and I love the results the Mini Archival Inks create. These crisp colors provide a detailed stamped image allowing versatility even when watercoloring.The Mini Archival Inks are just the right size for adding ink in select areas of the rubber stamps. Allowing me to ink and build each stamped image. Each ink is easily cleaned off the Archival Cleaner.
Dry your stamp with some paper towel then add more color to the leaves and petals cleaning between.
The new Tonic Stamp Platform was the perfect tool to allow me to repeatedly ink and stamp without shifting the image.
These Archival Mini Inks are permanent ink so they do not react with water. But I wanted to try spritzing a little water while the ink was still wet for a softer stamped leaf.
You can use Distress Oxide Inks to soften the stamped flowers. Stamp an assortment of sentiments. Lighter ink for a background sentiment and Jet Black for the main sentiment.
Apply the Oxide Ink pad straight onto the craft sheet, mist with water and drag the bottom of the watercolor cardstock for a grassy base.
Add a little color to the edges and run the watercolor through it just to add that little bit of softness. One more flower with the Flower Garden & Mini Bouquet Framelit cut.
All the layers of colorful stamping bring this card together.
Holding on to the last days of summer with this meadow inspired card. Combing Archival Mini Inks and Distress Oxides gives you the best that both inks have to offer. Crisp stamped lines and the ability to soften around them.
