LIM Challenge - Week 28 - One Layer - Inks

Have now returned from my very quick (but very enjoyable) long weekend away in UK. My son and his wife were very suprised to see us and the look on their faces was a picture. Felix's 1st Birthday Party was a huge success.

When I logged on this morning to the LIM Challenge I thought "NO don't do inks" but having had a think about it I came up with this. Hammered Cream Card A6 landscape. I cut a piece of card with a scalloped edge and used it as a mask both sides and just dragged the ink pad along as the card is hammered it picked up the "bumps" I then used Tim Holtz distressed Ink Crushed Olive as recommended by sister Di and stamped the grape vine. Don't really know what I am doing with these stamp pads but had a nice time playing. Off to play some more.


  1. I'm so pleased you had fun doing this Sandra... I can't wait to see what you come up with next, playing with ink can be so therapeutic!
    Charming card.
    Thanks so much.

  2. Using the ink pad directly onto the card has worked really well. I am not so brave and always end up using a sponge. Lovely effect on the textured card.

  3. This is lovely - well done for someone who 'doesn't do inks'!!!

  4. Glad you had such an enjoyable trip to the UK. Well done on diving right in and playing with inks. Getting inky is real fun, enjoy !
