I used a technique on this card called “direct to paper”, where you take your ink pad and apply it directly to the paper. Kind of a messy look, but it’s great because that means it’s easy to do!!
I used three different Stampin’ Up! blue inks (see names in the Supplies list below), as well as Stampin’ Up! paper. SU paper is definitely best in this case because you want the paper to absorb as much ink as possible. SU paper + SU ink = good results.
There are lots of possibilities with this technique – any silhouette stamp and three colors in the background. Voila!
I jazzed it up a little with some Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details. I usually only leave a 1/8″ matte on the outside of my layering, but this time I did 1/4″. I think it needs it. Anyway… enjoy the video and have a great week!
