I got some new goodies in the mail last week
and took some time in my craft area last night to play with some of them...
In addition to the new PTI, Wplus9, Mama Elephant and Ellen Hutson stamps I got,
(fabulous happy mail, right?), I also ordered a Journaling Bible &
Now, while I'm very excited to start Bible Journaling, I'm also a little nervous...
After all, if I mess up on a card, it's just a piece of cardstock I can flip over and start again.
A Bible is a different matter entirely....
So while I wait for some courage, as well as a few more supplies that I ordered
(some fun pens and gesso to prime my pages),
I thought I'd play with the stamp set that came in my Created to Create Kit.
I started with a piece of watercolour paper and repeatedly stamped the paint brush along the top.
Then, with nine different colours of ink, one at a time, I pressed the ink onto my acrylic block
and then added water with a paintbrush and painted by lines along the front of my card.
I also painted the handles of the paint brushes to match.
*Note, for the first seven colours, I used Papertrey Ink inks.
For the last two (purples), I used Altenew, which seemed to bleed a little.
I definitely preferred the PTI inks for this technique.
I stamped the "created to create" sentiment
and then repeated my ink painting technique with some Golden Glitz Delicata ink
to paint in the metal part of the paintbrushes, which adds a fun touch of shine.
Thanks for looking!
