This week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is abandoned coral ink from Ranger Distress inks or coral colors.
I've used it to color the background, just swiped the inkpad on the cardstock and let that dry.
Meanwhile I took a stencil and with my mini blending foams I inked abandoned coral through the stencil on vellum.
Saw Sandy Allnock do this and I tried it last week, it works!
Let that dry too.
I also made a version with another stencil I used as a stamp, by coloring the stencil with abandoned coral, dusty concord and picked raspberry for interest, then sprayed it with a mini mister and pressed watercolor paper onto it, let it soak in for a few seconds and then let it dry.
Then, ofcourse, doubt creeps in..which is better....always...but ultimately I chose the polka dot vellum and finished the card by adding gold like orange ribbon and rhinestones.
the sentiment is from Sizzix and I stamped it with Staz-on.
