Grungy Monday on a Monday! ............ and what a technique.
Ink Colour Blocking - which if you click the link here you will find a quick video of Tim demonstrating his Distress Ink Color Blocking Technique. As Linda at Studio L3 says "this is such a fun and easy way to create a funky, mod/grunge look, and you can use it for so many projects".
I did a couple of small pieces first and wasn't too sure if I liked it as the colours I used were quite bright, but once it started drying and the colours all merged together it looked really great.
So .... what to do with my inked piece. It looked quite "masculine" so I decided to make a birthday card for No. 2 son who is always on his bike (training and road racing). I used the Rusted Enamel Technique from the Compendium of Curiosities for the cogs and despite using all the same colours of ink they all look a different colour!
I had very little time to make this card as I am getting ready for a visit from my other son, daughter in law and gorgeous (of course!) 4 month old grandson - so probably no crafting for the next week!
Do click the link to Studio L3 as there are three beautiful and stunning examples of this technique.
Thank you all for your help with my dabbers last week - it was very much appreciated!
