Inking Techniques with Susie!

Hello and welcome! 

Susie hosting the blog today and I am playing along with our challenge for the month of November:  "Fall Colors"!  I created this Clean And Simple (CAS) card by combining Quick Quotes PowderPuff Chalking Ink with some leaf dies. 

I started with a piece of paper from the Anchors Aweigh Collection and 5 different colors of PowderPuff Chalking Inks: Terra Cotta, Clay, Lipstick, Barn Board, and Desert Sun. I used a piece of the same paper as the background for this picture so that you can see how much richer and varied the color is after I blended all the inks.

Next I die cut the leaves. 

These particular dies allow for embossing to add some detail...

...but you can really see the veins in the leaf after I lightly swiped the Clay ink across the surface!

I also inked the edges of the finished leaves and took a little time to bend and curve them...

...before adhering them to the card with dimensional adhesive.

I love how they turned out!  

I am definitely going to make more for another project later this month!


I hope you will play along with our Fall Colors Challenge this month. There is a yummy prize to be won! Check out all the details HERE.
