The challenge this week is Just Add Ink is Clear Block Stamping, JAI#237.
I have to admit I have never tried this technique before and this is one reason I love entering these challenges. It really does challenge us to try different styles!
I started with a card base of Lost Lagoon. I then got out the Serene Silhouettes Stamp Set and used the Versamark Ink to stamp the image onto Whisper White card stock. Then embossed it with clear embossing powder and heat set it.
Next I chose my colours, Island Indigo, Lost Lagoon & Pool Party. I used my ‘H’ Clear Block and inked it up on the ink pads starting at the top with Island Indigo. Once I stamped all the white card, I went back over the colours with a sponge dauber to soften and fill in the missing gaps.
The little raindrops I created by dropping some crystal effects onto my silicone mat and letting them dry before adhering to my card with Tombo glue.
I added a strip of the clear block stamping technique to the bottom of inside of my card and stamped the same flower image in Island Indigo ink just in the bottom corner.
I added the sentiment from the Good Greetings Stamp Set in Island Indigo.
This background is very cheap and easy to create, why don’t you give it a go too.
