Hi everyone, the designers at Clearsnap and Cardmaker Magazine have come together today with a blog hop. Hope you'll stop by everyone's blog and see what they've created.
Have you seen Izink Pigment Inks yet? Izinks are distributed by Clearsnap, and are an acrylic based pigment ink that can be used for most craft projects. Use the included eye dropper or put some Izink in a spray bottle and spritz it. You can mix and match colors and even create your own colors by mixing them together. Let me show you what I've done.
I placed several drops of Bamboo, Cactus and Topaz Izink on a craft sheet, then using the Izink Spritzer bottle, I spritzed the craft sheet with water to liquify the colors some more.
I dragged several pieces of cardstock through the watery mix. Depending on the amount you have used, Izink dries quickly or, to speed along the drying process, you can always heat set it. You can create some fun effects by adding additional layers of ink once the previous layers have dried. Simply spritz more water on your craft sheet and drag the cardstock through it again.
Using a Sizzix die I created the card from brown cardstock. Then I die cut the Izink'd paper to fit. ColorBox Stephanie Barnard Artichoke Ink was the perfect match, so I inked all the edges of my papers before completing the card. To add a little more dimension, I used a ColorBox Art Screen with the Artichoke Ink along the right/back edge. Love the look!
I used ColorBox Lots of Thoughts Design Adhesives along with Goldmine Designer Foils on the card flaps. They rubbed perfectly onto scraps of the Izink'd papers and fit perfectly in the small Sizzix die cut.
It's hard to see but the Izink really shimmers and shines. Izink is an amazing product that has endless possibilities. Why not pick up a few and give them a try?
Stop by all the designers and see what they've created. Leave a comment along the way for a chance to win a prize package of Izink from Clearsnap.
