Ink On 3 - Silhouette Your Stamp


Dear Ones~
It is my honor once again to be guest designing for a fabulous company named Ink On 3. This is a wonderful company that offers inks, stamps, dies, stencils, even svg files, and more. Swing on over and check them out. You won't be sorry.
Today I want you to use your stamps in a different way. Did you know you can make them into a silhouette? Here's my card:

To begin, I made an interesting background by masking off a piece of card stock and sponging various inks using a piece of plastic so that I could get a defining edge. Here I used Ink On 3 Peacock Blue, Marilyn Red and My Jam Purple.






 Here is how it looks when completed.



Next I stamped the Koi fish from the Koi Pond stamp set onto my sponged background using my MISTI.

Then I colored the fish in with my black Copic Marker. And voile, a silhouette.

For a final touch, I added some embellishments with black and white markers. Then I stamped the Hugs greeting with a stamp from the Fox and Bunny Hugs stamp set. I also attached a few gems from Trinity Stamps called Bubble Blower.

I would invite you to hop on over to the Ink On 3 website and take a look at all the wonderful products offered there. And thanks for stopping by. As always, I adore your comments.

Until next time, here's celebrating your Creative Muse!!!💗
