Another technique and the first Let's Ink It Up challenge of 2011

First welcome to the first Let's Ink It Up Challenge for 2011. Anything goes was the theme for challenge #8 so I decided to do another tutorial. But first we need to get the business out of the way.

The Sponsor for Challenge #8 at Let's Ink It Up is:
- Make It Crafty -

Prize Package - their choice of one rubber stamp

Sponsor Blurb - Make it Crafty - Think it. Make it. Love it!
Make it Crafty is a dream come true for Zoe who has loved making projects from paper from a young child. Whether it be drawing, making cards, colouring, or her absolute favourite 3D mechanical projects; Zoe is always trying to think about new ideas to play with!
For a number of years Zoe has wanted to share her ideas and love for craft products with you and so Make it Crafty was finally born where she sells some of her favourite products as well as her own range of both digital and rubber stamps.
Zoe only sells products she uses personally so she is always ready to help you where she can. You may also like to stop by the Make it Crafty Blog to see the latest projects, news and tips!

Be sure to add your project by Feb. 3rd Aussie time.
Now head on over to Let's Ink It Up and see what the rest of the team has come up with.

Okay here we go. For this background you will need Dye ink pads and if you have small pads like these you can work directly to the paper with the pad. If you don't use a sponge to add the colors. I have become a fan of Memento Inks and am busily collecting all the pads in mini version. Great colors.

 For this project I used Sweet Plum, London Fog and New Sprout inks. You will use regular card stock for this also.

 Swipe the pads over the card stock or use a sponge to add your ink in any pattern. No right or wrong here. Each one you make will look different. If you used Distressed Ink Pads you could blend your colors with a sponge for a smoother looking background.

                                               This is mine.

 Next I sprayed it with Pearl Glimmer Mist. After it dried I sprayed with Silver Webbing. The Pearl Glimmer Mist gave it a real sheen.

 Here it is after I sprayed the webbing. Webbing comes in 4 colors. White, Black, Gold and Silver. I normally spray everything with the black. It makes the colors really pop. But for this project I decided I wanted a softer background and used the Silver. The one color I never pick up.

 I used an image from I Brake For stamps from the Rick St. Dennis Co. I used Gamsol and Prisma pencils to color my clown. Glitter on his little puff ball decoration. Stamped my sentiment with a Rainbow Pad. Inked all the edges with Sweet Plum. The square behind him is sponged with the New Sprout and sprayed with the Pearl Glimmer Mist. I wish you could see how shiny it is. One tip about the webbing. I always do it outside in the grass and be sure you spray in a sweeping motion.  If you don't move your arm you will get big blobs.
