While yesterday I used my inks to create a background, today I used them for some delicate, detail stamping.
I began with a white ATC-sized Inchie Arts Art Square.  The surface of the matboard squares are very similiar to a hot press watercolor paper so they work great with the "wetness" of the Luxe Inks.
To create this ATC I used the striking blue colors of Memento Luxe Ink: Bahama Blue, Danube Blue, and Nautical Blue.  Blue's can be tricky, but I LOVE these!  I inked my stamp (Lace Trims by Penny Black) and alternated colors, stamping vertically across the Art Square. Once dry, I added just a touch of Teal Zeal Memento Ink using an ink blusher, in order to tone down the white background of the Art Square.  Finally, I inked my die cut (Penny Black Love Buds) using Danube Blue Memento Luxe Ink and added it to my ATC using dimensional foam.  Twine (May Arts) and a pearl pull the design together.
Now, after seeing Elizabeth's pillowcases yesterday, I can't even imagine what she's designed today in her studio... let's go check it out!
