I've spent the last couple of days working on gifts for my daughter's preschool teachers. I decided to make monogrammed cards for each of them in their favorite colors. I also had some fun playing with ink on these. :)
For the first set, I used my brayer and some purple spray ink to color the card base. I got the idea from this May Flaum video. I then stamped over it with a background stamp. The frame and letter were cut using the "Storybook" Cricut cartridge. I used this week's Unscripted Sketch. They are having a "piggyback challenge" this week which was to get inky, and I certainly did on this one!
For the next set, I used the current Mojo Monday sketch. I pulled out my alcohol inks and glossy cardstock on this one. I started by stamping red ink and gold mixative all over the piece of paper. Then I went back over it with blending solution making a twisting motion with the tool, creating a swirl pattern. Again, the letter and frame were cut using "Storybook".
