Make it Monday #152 – Thinking of You Card

make it monday 152 thinking of you

This is my second try at this week’s Papertrey Ink Make it Monday Challenge (#152) is Layering Dye and Pigment Inks.

I stamped Cornish Heritage Farms Spanish Script in white pigment ink on the white cardstock, set it aside to dry overnight. Then I stamped the Papertrey Ink trio of trees (Through the Trees) multiple times in Marina Mist dye ink over the now dry white pigment ink. This time, the white does not really show through the blue ink – not sure if I let it dry too long before adding the dye ink. But you can see the white ink on the card, here is a better angle:
