Welcome to this months MFT Ingenious Inking Challenge! This month's theme is watercolor wash!
Watercolor is a forgiving technique that produces a wonderfully ethereal look on cards and projects. The beauty of MFT ink pads and refills is their versatility and ability to be used to create such a look. We can’t wait to share the inky projects our team has created this month featuring subtle washes and bold swathes of color. Pull out your brushes and make something beautiful with us!
For my card, I started with watercolor paper and wet the whole piece liberally. I then used my Sno Cone dye ink pad and pressed it down on my craft sheet and used a wet paintbrush to pick it up and dab it onto my wet paper. I continued in this manner until I was happy with the coverage. I then pressed a bit of Blu Raspberry dye ink onto my craft sheet, and using a smaller paintbrush, mixed a little water with it, and splattered it onto my paper. I then stamped and cut out the flowers and leaves from Build-Able Blooms stamps and Die-namics and adhered them to the card with foam tape. The colors I used for the flowers are Blu Raspberry, Sno Cone, Grout Gray, Natural and Spearmint. I stamped my sentiment from The Whole Herd stamp set in Black Licorice ink, and attached the whole panel to a Smooth White top folded card base.
