Easter Blessings with Rebecca

Good day, everyone! It's Rebecca hosting the blog for you today.

I'm featuring All about PowderPuff Chalk Inks! They really pack a punch in a small package. You can stamp, color and blend with them but did you know you can create beautiful backgrounds, too? Let's take a look at my first PowderPuff Chalk Ink technique...
Easter Blessings

Tools needed:
  • PowderPuff Chalk Inks
  • Rubbing Alcohol
  • Glossy Card Stock
  • Embossing Gun
  • Choose your colors
  • Fill a mister with rubbing alcohol
  • Cut a piece of glossy card stock to the size you desire.

  • Starting with the lightest color, press pad to glossy card stock in a random fashion.
  • Next, apply medium color in the same manner and finally the third color.
  • Saturate the glossy card stock with the mister filled with alcohol.
  • Use embossing gun to swirl the color.
  • Move the gun around the glossy card stock and you can see the colors run together.
  • Dry completely, moving gun constantly, so paper will not bubble.

  • You can add a metallic shine by adding a gold pigment ink.
  • Press pad directly on the glossy card stock as you did with the PowderPuff Chalk Ink. 
  • Saturate the card stock with the alcohol filled mister.

  • Use embossing gun to move the color as you did with the PowderPuff Chalk Inks. 

  • Spray finished piece with Clear sealer in a matte finish. 
  • This will keep the pigment ink from rubbing off.

 You can easily transform this technique for use on a scrapbook page.

I used a 3" x 11" strip of glossy card stock and did the above steps using Tropical Punch, Island Orange Chalk Inks and Silver pigment ink.

I usually don't make one photo pages but this picture of my grandson, Andrew with his cousin, Stella made this layout the exception to the rule. This is how I began to create this...

I chose a piece of the Spring Showers paper and tore a "v" shape in the top and sides of the paper. Using a hole punch and eyelets. I set eyelets along the sides of the "v" shape.

I laced ribbon through the eyelets and taped one set to the back of the paper and the other  "v" shape I tied a bow.

I gathered my embellishments. Most came from fussy cutting the designs out of the paper. I die cut the trellis and flourish  and punched some green flowers from card stock. I took the glossy card stock background paper I created and punched out flowers from it. 

I layered my embellishments and added jewels to the center of my flowers. I inked all my fussy cut pieces with chalk ink.

I added pearls to the smaller punch flowers.
