Inkylicious – Live Your Life In Colour

Good Morning.  Another little play today with one of the new Inkylicious stamp sets.  Cute aren’t they?

I’m a big lover of cards that take minutes and although they may be simple, sometimes the CAS really are the best.  I needed a quick card to put together for my MIL birthday.  She’s a bit fan of African animals and I thought she’d love these.  The stamp set is from Inkylicious and it’s called Life Life in Colour

It was so simple to make.  I used Versafine Black Ink for the black stamping – this is a firm favourite of mine.  It always stamps so well.

I wanted to mix the colours for the final zebra and the “colour” part of the sentiment, so I used Tim Holtz distress inks in Peacock Feathers and Dusty Concord.  For the zebras I used my watercolour brush to paint it.  For the sentiment I just inked half the stamp with each ink.

Finally, using my watercolour brush I flicked the ink over the whole image.  I then backed the card stock on stash card stock that matched as closely as possible.  The stamp is quite large so I made the card an 8 in x 8 in instead of usual smaller sizes.

Because I was stamping onto watercolour paper I was sure to use my Misti to get a solid print.  This product completely changed my stamping – there are now others on the market, but this was my saviour.  I’ve lost count of the times I’ve re-stamped an image over and over because the middle wouldn’t print nicely.  Being able to reprint directly over the top again and again is fab!
