AECP Level 1- Irresistible inking techniques

Updated: Apr 29, 2021

Happy Wednesday! The card that I made today is for the AECP class Irresistible inking techniques. I had a lot of fun making this card because I love using inks and I don't often use them in this manner. For this card, I decided to do the technique of painting the flower that was demonstrated in lesson 1, and then also the technique of inking the edges of your project. I used to use this technique so much but I have not done this in years so it was really nice to see Sara demonstrate this technique. I chose to use the large floral stamp from the Fairy Tale Florals stamp set. I cut an A2 size panel from 110 lb. white cardstock and placed it in my Misti stamping tool and decided how I wanted it to be placed. I wanted it to go off of the panel just a little bit. I decided to stamp it with VersaFine embossing ink and then emboss it with detail black embossing powder from Recollections.

After it was heat embossed I went to work inking the image. For the flowers I used Altenew inks in Ruby red, coral berry, fresh lemon, citrus burst, frayed leaf, forest glades, sunkissed, and orange cream. I really like the pinks, oranges, and yellow together. I covered the flowers with a post it note and then splattered the background with ruby red and orange cream.

I made a 5"x7" cardstock base from 110 lb. white cardstock. I took a piece of pink 65 lb. paper from Recollections and cut a panel slightly bigger than my A2 panel and adhered the two together with my Tombow tape runner. I then cut a black panel from 110 lb. cardstock from Recollections, just slightly larger than the pink one. I adhered the black panel to the other panel with Scotch foam tape to make it pop a bit.

I adhered this entire panel to the cardstock base. I stamped the sentiment from the Paint A Flowers-Carnations stamp set from Altenew in VersaMark black onyx ink. I also adhered a few sequins from 28 Lilac Lane in SHINE to the finished panel with Lawn Fawn liquid adhesive. For the last finishing touch, I used another technique from this class and inked the edges with the Coral Berry mini ink cube from Altenew. It matches the pink cardstock so perfectly!

Thanks for stopping by!
