Friday Challenge 78

Hello and welcome! It's June hosting the blog today. It is the first Friday of the month and that means it is time to reveal the August Challenge.

This month it's Friday Challenge 78 and our theme is... Use Colored Inks! Be sure to stop back at the blog this weekend for the Winner Announcement for July's Friday Challenge 77 "Red, White and Blue."

I love my PowderPuff Chalking Inks. They come in so many beautiful colors and are so versatile. 

Here is my project featuring lots of ways to use these inks.

Technique #1: 

  • Using Bora Bora PowderPuff Chalking Ink, I tinted white glass bead texture gel and applied it to Anchors Aweigh 100 paper with a swirly stencil. 
  • I found this works best by stamping the ink onto a craft mat and then mixing the texture gel into it.



Technique #2: 

  • I used Bora Bora and Sky Blue PowderPuff Chalking Inks to color white ribbon. 
  • This was quite easy - just run the ink pad over the ribbon to color it. 
  • For more on this technique, check out this video tutorial, Customize Your Ribbon with PowderPuff Chalk Ink with Barb
  • There are lots of other great techniques in the Tutorial section here on the blog too, so be sure to check them out! There is even a new section just for Canon Printer and Software tutorials too.



Technique #3:

  • I colored my chipboard flowers with Bora Bora and Sunset PowderPuff Chalking Inks using a smooshing technique. 
  • Just "smoosh" the chipboard onto the ink pad for a beautiful and organic result!

 

Technique #4 -

  • Two-toned letters are all the rage right now. 
  • I used Sky Blue and Sunset PowderPuff Chalking Inks to create my own two-tone title in exactly the colors I wanted. 
  • I started with white Thickers, masked one half with washi tape, and applied the first color. 
  • After they dried, I moved the mask to the opposite side and colored the other half with the second color. 
  • Just for fun, I also added Glossy Accents. (The "2017" are unaltered numbers from the same set.)



Technique #5:

  • I used Bora Bora, Sky Blue, Sunset, and Slate PowerPuff Chalking Inks to edge the papers and embellishments for my page. It makes them really pop!



These are just a few of the many techniques you can do. PowderPuff Chalking Inks also work so great for stamping, blending, watercoloring, and so much more.

I used my Canon Selphy CP1200 to print the photo for this project. So easy and convenient!


Here are some close ups of the finished product.
