Ann Butler's Crafter's Ink by Clearsnap - Berry and Canyon
Rita Barakat's Art Foamies - Hot Air Balloon
Lisa Jimenez Colorique Ink by Clearsnap - Honey Bee and Wisteria
I began by inking the Hot Air Balloon with both Berry and Canyon Inks. This is a large stamp that I knew would be perfect for a gift bag. Once stamped, I then fussy cut both pieces.
I placed several drops of Honey Bee and Wisteria Colorique on a gift bag, then used a paint brush to create the streaky background. Colorique Ink is blendable so where the colors overlap, a third color came to life.
Colorique works on a variety of surfaces so I selected a metal charm and painted it with Honey Bee. Before it dried, I rubbed off the color as I wanted the color to soak into the letter spaces. Finally I painted Wisteria on the charm and heat set it.
Next, I inked some ribbon with Berry Ink.
Then I used my Bowdabra to create a ribbon.
To finish, I matted the hot air balloon with cardstock and adhered to the bag. I tied the ribbon to the handles and added the charm. I also used Berry Ink around the edges of the gift bag.
I hope you enjoyed my project and will try these lovely supplies.
Thanks for stopping by today.
