Paper: Strathmore Bristol Smooth; Neenah Classic Crest Solar White
Stamps: Gina K. Vibrant Blooms; InkOn3 Bad and Boujee
Coloring: Arteza Real Brush
Yellow- A151, A178, A121
Brown- A156, A134, A137, A178
Green- A170, A126
Embossing Powder: InkOn3 Chrome



I absolutely love these flowers from Gina K.! They are so much fun to color! I've been doing a lot of no-line watercolors lately, and the InkOn3 Fadeout ink is great for 



For my silver layer, I rubbed the edge of the cardstock with InkOn3 Juicy Clear Embossing ink, then heat embossed it using the InkOn3 Chrome embossing powder

I then stamped "kisses" from InkOn3 Bad and Boujee stamp set with Fadeout ink over and over to fill the background. It is very subtle, but give the white background a tone-on-tone look. It's a great way to give a bit of visual texture without distracting from the focal point!

I was also very inspired by the Gina K. stencil....


Paper: Neenah Classic Crest Solar White; Georgia Pacific black
Stamps: InkOn 3 Bad and Boujee
Ink:  Ink on 3 Blackout; Distress Ink Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon; Squeezed Lemonade
Dies:  Ink on 3 Bad and Boujee
Stencil: Gina K Foliage
Other: InkOn 3 Liquid Pixie Dust


I don't generally do much with stencils, but this beauty has me wanting to start using them more often! 



I started by using blending brushes to ink up the stencil using 3 colors of Distress Ink (blue, yellow, and pink), being sure to over lap the colors slightly.. this gave me a full rainbow of colors without having to get out all my ink pads! 

I then swiped each of the ink pads on a glass mat, and added one drop of InkOn3's Liquid Pixie Dust to each color. I also added a spritz of water to each color to make it nice and juicy. I mixed each color up with my paint brush then flicked the ink over the stenciled panel. This leaves beautiful splatter drops that are SUPER sparkly!


I stamped "SENDING" in InkOn3 Blackout ink (a beautiful dark black ink!). I then die-cut "kisses" from both black and white cardstock using the InkOn3 Bad and Boujee die set. I painted them with a little Liquid Pixie Dust (it's STUNNING on the black!!), glued them off set, then attached them to the card using foam tape.
