Paper and Ink Imaginings

just playing with paper and ink

Mondo Daisy Hello Card

Ellen Hutson just released this Mondo Daisy set (designed by Julie Ebersole).

OF COURSE I needed a daisy set!

For this first play session, I stamped the daisy with Gina K. Designs Amalgam ink (which works with all coloring mediums without running or bleeding) onto Strathmore Bristol paper. And I did not use embossing powder (which I usually do when I am coloring any image). I used ZIG Clean Color Real Brush pens and a water marker to color the daisy. It was too muted for me after my first try, so I added multiple layers of color with just the Real Brush pens. Now I have the bright Gerbera daisy I was aiming for.

The sentiment was a tiny bit of a mistake – I stamped twice for coverage, but my paper shifted a smidgen and the image was offset just a tidge, so it is a little bolder than intended.
