Lil' Inker Designs May Release: Day 3


Welcome to the Lil' Inker Designs May Release Day 3!  I'm so excited for today because the DT gets to show inspiration using the most trendy word dies yet done in.......a brushstroke font!!!  You need to pick these up while in stock!!  
You should have arrived from the  Lil' Inker Designs blog.


My first card uses the new Unscramble This stamp set along with the Peek-a-Boo Die.  This little die can be used in so many ways but I've used it here for its intended purpose......to make this an interactive type card by creating a flap!  I've also added in some other previously released goodies here......the stitched balloons from the Mini Party Die set and Stitched Mats: Rectangles.

My second card uses the new brushstroke word dies.  I did a bit of watercolor using the Hello Die.....there are no stamps.  The way I made this was that I simply inked up my Hello Die with Versamark lightly so as to not get ink anywhere except for the "cutting" portion of the die.  Then I carefully placed my inked up die onto my cardstock where I wanted it and simply pressed down.  This transfered the ink to my cardstock which I then heat embossed with white embossing powder.  Using Distress Inks in shades of blue, I then watercolored over my embossed Hello.  I simply LOVE the emboss resist technique!
