Card


Another card using my current favourite stamp by ISC! I wanted to try out a technique that was in a recent edition of Craft Stamper using Castaway Ink - the background was created by covering the card with various colours of pigment ink and then covering with dye inks. I stamped the flourish (Stampin' Up) with the Castaway Ink and then ironed it to activate the 'bleaching' effect. I used the same technique on the background of the skinny below.

The technique worked brilliantly. Love those vibrant colours - and of course I love the stamps. :-)
