I wanted to show you a fun way to use Ann Butler's Crafter's Ink from Clearsnap on two different surfaces - a canvas panel and a card. These crafter's inks are very wet and come in an array of beautiful colors.
Using the same supplies, but different surfaces, this is what I came up with.
Canvas Panel Card
I used the inks as watercolor paints by placing the inks on a craft mat and spritzing them with water creating a liquid consistency. Then I used a paint brush to paint the colors on the canvas and the card. I wanted to see how both surfaces would react using the same technique.
I painted Aquamarine on the top half of both pieces and Limelight on the bottom half, blending them in the center with a paint brush.
The sun from Unity stamps was stamped in the corner using ColorBox Kettle Dye Ink. Using Ann Butler's quilt stamps from Unity stamps - 1" Leaves all Over, I stamped the stripes in Kettle Dye Ink along the bottom to mimic fence posts. Once dry, I stamped the leaves with Limelight Ink over and around the fence.
So, as you can see, these inks are wonderful on a variety of surfaces. Why not give them a try today.
Thanks for stopping by today.
