Craft Stamper Take It Make It Challenge June 2016 - Take a Technique - Lets Get Inky!

Welcome to another challenge over at the Craft Stamper Magazine Blog where this month we would like you to get "inky" with your stamps. This month I'm also super excited as I designed the Seahorse cover stamp.

I created a background by blending Shade Lilac, Blue Lagoon and Peacock Feathers together. Then I tapped the Twisted Citron onto my craft mat to get a little ink on there, added water and splattered onto the blended background. I splattered in an upwards motion, so the splatters thinned out at they got near the top, to give the illusion of bubbles raising to the surface.

I stamped out the Seahorse twice using black Archival ink, and following the instructions in the magazine, printed out the digi Seahorse, making him larger and also I flipped him round, as I did with the project in the magazine. That's the beauty of a digi image.

After colouring the images in using Prismacolour pencils, I cut them out and added them to the inky background, along with one of the stamps from Stamposaurus Beach Words set, and added a scribble around the edge of the project before adding it to a 6" square card blank.

So there you have it "Lets Get Inky" and as always we have a fabulous prize up for grabs, wish I could enter this time just look what's up for grabs!

Five bottles of the yummy new Infusions from PaperArtsy. So get stamping, get inky and get joining in, as well as a chance to win this fabulous set there is also a chance to have your artwork featured in the magazine itself, how cool is that!
