Hi Pinkfresh friends!
I'm back again on the blog with an oldie but goodie technique using the new Calico White Pigment ink on kraft cardstock.
My idea was to create a bunch of colorful leaves so I decided to use the Fall Foliage Stencils as I could create plenty of leaves in no time. I started my projects by applying the Calico White pigment ink onto some kraft cardsock.
Next up I dried this ink using my heat gun to make sure it was dried before applying Pinkfresh dye inks on top.
I chose a bunch of colors from the latest Ink release and some older colors: Citron, Bay Leaf, Mimosa, Mango Sorbet, Cherry Blossom, Peony, Begonia, Sage, Eucaliptus, Spruce Tips, Waterfall, Turquoise, Paradise, Bubble Gum , Raspberry Bliss, Key Lime, Olive, Candy Violet and Regal Kiss.
I inked up several panels so I had plenty of colorful leaves to play with. I used the coordinating die to cut out all my leaves and created several arrangements.
I love to add lots of dimension to my designs, so after arranging some leaves in a semi circular shape I thought I'd use the Fancy Circle dies so I could adhere my leaves on top. I inked up these circles using the Waterfall Dye ink and glued them together. Next up I added some foam adhesive on the back and placed them onto a hot foil panel with the Overlapping Geo Leaf.
To add some extra texture I went ahead and heat embossed an A2 panel with the Delicate Floral Print Cling stamp using Wow White Pearl embossing powder. I used the Rectangle Folk Edge dies to cut out this panel and adhered it onto a A2 turquiose card base. I tucked some small leaves cut out of white and dark green cardstock with the Garden Wreath Die.
Lastly I placed of the sentiments from the set Wonderful Sentiment Hot foil in the center of the card offset a little bit to the right side and added some Ombre Glitter Drops here and there for some shine.
Since I had so many leaves, I was able to create to more projects:
I created the background of this design by heat embossing the Delicate Floral Print Cling stamp in Wow Pearl White embossing powder. Next up I stacked the Braided Oval dies on top and arranged the leaves trying to create some movement. I also tucked some additional leaves from the Garden Wreath die set in dark green and white cardstock for some dimension. Lastly I white heat embossed the sentiment from the Thanks for Being there set on dark cardstock.
For my last project I used the birdcage from the Best Things die set cutting out several pieces out of white cardstock and white glitter cardstock and gluing them together. I arranged the leaves in rainbow order adhering some aditional leaves cut out of mate gold cardstock.
I hope you find these ideas inspiring and encourage you to use the new Calico White ink .
Thank you so much for stopping by.
