Inking on Scrapbook Pages

Inking on Scrapbook Pages

One of the best ways to make your scrapbook pages jump of the page is to add a little ink around the edges of the layers of the papers.  In this scrapbook page I used the Locomotive Surface ink on every picture and paper edge to help separate each layer from the one under it.  The ink really helps make a difference and adds a little something to the page. Here is a video on how I made the patriotic layout. In this layout I used the Cornflower Surface ink and also the Cornflower mists to help everything pop!! Here...

Adventure Is Calling

Welcome back to the blog! Today's card is a fun one using the Watercolor Background Stamp.

I then took a paintbrush and...

Hello crafty folks, My card today is one that makes me smile. It is simple but projects a happy feeling.

Affixed this card front to a teal base and I am finished. Enjoy.

Nautical Card with Surface Ink Scratch Background Flower- Betz Golden

Last week I showed you how to make different kinds of backgrounds using different types of mediums. Today I am going to show you how to take one of those background sheets and make it into a flower with the circle foundation die. I used the background that I created with the Scratch Background stamp and Surface inks. I ran that sheet through my die cut machine with the foundation circle dies. I roughed up and distressed the edges of each circle with my distressing tool (you can use scissors for the same effect). I inked the edges with the...
