Bloom and Grow with Faux Oxide Ink Technique

July 17, 2019 4 Comments

Hi! I’m Sara Levin the artful inker. Welcome to my blog! Today I’ve played with the TGIFC220 challenge and used it for inspiration for the Bloom and Grow with Faux Oxide Ink Technique card that I’m sharing with you.

 

TGIFC220 Shop for Stampin Up products at theartfulinker.com

 

The TGIFC220 challenge is to use this sketch.

The bold colors of this Faux Oxide Ink background

are a perfect way to let the Basic Black elements pop!

The bright color combo of

Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral,

Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape

has a summery feel.

Here’s a closer look at the Faux Oxide Ink background.

It contrasts beautifully with the Wild Rose die cuts

and the Bloom and Grow image in black.

There have been lots of comments expressing concern that I may have ruined my ink pads with this technique.

Please know, I would not share a technique that ruined my business tools.

Nor would I suggest that you do something that will harm your tools.

This is the Gorgeous Grape ink pad that I used today.

As you can see,

it was in no way harmed by this technique.

Looks brand new!!

cut a longer strip for the Bloom and Grow sentiment.

    Love the background technique on this card!!! It’s so stunning against the black dies and stamps. This is really a gorgeous card.
