This week's Cornish Heritage Farms design team challenge was to use Adirondack inks on a project. I used my inks to create a custom inked background using glossy paper and clear embossing. I've seen many others do this technique and I've been wanting to try it out myself so this week's challenge was a perfect time.
You can find ALL the Adirondack Ink's on sale in the Cornish Heritage Farms store this week too!
1. Stamp French Script backgrounder with Staz On ink onto glossy cardstock.
2. Stamp flourish stamps on top of background with Versamark ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.
3. Apply Adirondack inks to glossy paper using cut and dry foam. Layer the colours as desired and apply in a swirling motion to blend and VOILA, a custom background!
Be sure to stop by and check out the rest of the projects (and LOTS of new techniques) from the CHF chicks: Julia, Joanne, Kristine, Lisa S, Julie, Dawn, Kim, Alli, Michele, Becky, and Val
We'd also love to see your work! Be sure to upload in the gallery and link in the challenge thread here.
