Playing with Minx Shimmering Inks – no 6

Remember these posts from me, Ellie?

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 4

Remember that, on an old table: using a bucket of water and paper, and of course … Minx,
I created a whole bunch of backgrounds?? I did a second post about that too:

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 5

Today’s post features the beautiful vibrancy of the Minx Shimmering Inks. 


The background on canvas paper.. still wet but drying in the sun!
Later on, I discovered that I must have dropped some water on it by mistake, as it had more drops than showing on this photo… that’s part of the fun!
I had to be everywhere, because the robot lawnmower wanted to mow over my backgrounds sometimes, hehe.


I wanted to enhance the drops, so I did not cover it up, but overstamped and used the background as part of the images.

Don’t forget.. there is a Snapguide at the end of this post, showing the steps to achieve the finished card.


A close-up: watch the droplet… with the inks all pushed to the edges of it. I think that’s magic… I couldn’t have painted it that way!

Now for the second background:  very different paper, but a beauty too!


I cut it to size…

… and created this:
  

I sponged these tiny dots from the Lotus Stencil around the edge.

…for step-by-steps of this second card too, please see the Snapguide.

Bee Happy door hanger

Hello my dear crafty friends!

Irit is here with my new Mixed Media tutorial and this time we are going to make a Happy door hanger or as you can see it is ” Bee Happy” one.

As you can see I made it in bee’s yellow and just black and white and used tons of Art Anthology products.

The main images and the sentiment were stamped and heat embossed. My tip for you: if you wish to use mists over stamped images first heat emboss them! So easy and keeps the images untouched even with the heavy spraying.

So here are some close- ups for you to see and then there is a full step by step Snapguide tutorial as always.

 

 

Here is our Snapguide tutorial:

Playing with Minx shimmering inks – no 5

Ellie Knol again here today.

I decided to make backgrounds with Minx Shimmering Inks, on all types of paper.

It is really easy, and relaxing to do while enjoying the sun…

As promised, this time I’ll show the ones that had some white heat embossing, gesso and acrylic paint on it before coloring with Minx. Also some on canvas paper.
See the blogpost called
