Hi, Welcome to my Blog. I'm an avid crafter; Scrapbooking, Cards, ATCs, Tags, Altered Books, Art Journaling, Décopatch, Knitting, Crochet, and Embroidery amongst other things. I live in Surrey, UK with my husband and son. For exercise I play badminton and I have been Geocaching since 2009 and now and again Pokémon Go. Recently I got back to Ballroom and Latin Dancing too. I run a UK based on-line papercraft group.

May Craft Club - Inks Explored!

We all had a play with inks, stamps, stencils, stickles and liquid pearls today. Here's a quick reminder of some of the stages as we built up the layers on our ATCs. (if you click on any photograph it will be bigger)

First we inked with 3 different shades or colours of Distress inks. We then did "pat-a-cake" with water on our hands to drop water over the ink which we lifted with kitchen roll. We then added layers with stencils and stamps and added a little glitter glue or perfect pearls to finish off.

Here's some in orange and the brown butterfly ATC I did as the demonstration. I used another one as a card topper just by adding it to some patterned paper with ribbon.

I completely forgot to take photos of everyone's creations today but fortunately remembered to catch one set.

Oh and here's a reminder of the fun we had in both a before and during photo of the table!

Hi BJ, wow, these are amazing. Another technique I have to try. Love how they came out, I shall be case-ing, lol. Just popping in to say thanks for that info on my labels, I had no idea they took so long to load! I've moved them into my sidebar now, so that should help.I really appreciate you telling me, I know how irritating I find a slow website to be! Hugs, Shaz xx
