KKS – Tutorial – ink smooshing

Welcome to a Monday with Tips and Tutes over at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps.

Today I’m going to smoosh some ink, and I hope you’ll join in and have some fun.
Get ready, you don’t need much to play.

You need: 3-4 Distress ink pads, spray bottle with water and some paper.
I have die cut a tag out of pretty cheap watercolor paper,
but I know this works on other kind of paper too, so try it out what you like best!
It’s good if it not get flimsy when it become a bit wet.

Scribble your inkpads on a plastic surface. I’ve used my craft teflon sheet.

Mist water until you see the ink pearl.

Smoosh your paper (tag) into the colors.

And have a look. Yum! I dried this with my heat gun.

And smooshed again in the ink – and dried it.

Smooshed and draged a few times more. You don’t have to dry it in between every time you smoosh, you can just try a variation. To get more “spots” try drying it and smoosh again.

This is what it looked when I was satisfied after a bunch of smooshing in the ink.

And I couldn’t hold back from my mist bottles so I splashed a few drops of Glimmer Mist over the colored part to add some shimmer. Unscrew the top and use the “straw” inside to drip or splash some ink randomly (Note – I don’t mist the color on).

And this is the piece when I’m ready.

Sheep – Ewe are amazing
Leaves – Buds & Blossoms
Sentense – Love Story Sentiments

Sheep and leaves are mounted on 3D foam.

Hope you want to give it a try – it’s nothing but FUN FUN FUN!

It has been a bit slow here in my blog during the weekend, sorry for that. I’ve been more active in my studio and I think I spent all saturday in there besides some breaks for food. These cards where one thing that I’ve made. I call them “in between cards”. Just something easy and playful without rules to clear the creative mind a bit. I totally love it!



Ber om ursäkt för en ganska död helg här i bloggen. Det har blivit desto mer skapat i min pysselstudio, och jag tror jag spenderade nästan hela lördagen där förutom lite avbrott för mat och sånt annat trams. Det fanns en del på listan att göra pysselmässigt och sen sprattlade den kreativa sidan till lite och jag gjorde sånt jag bara hade lust med. Härligt.

Dom här korten är nått som jag kallar “mitt-emellan-kort”. Dom blir alltså skapade mellan två andra alster som har lite mer krav på sig om man säger så. Här blir det lek av hjärtans lust och vips tittar det fram några kort i slutänden (med lite tur). Ett sätt att rensa hjärnan helt enkelt.
