How to…Ink a dotty ef­fect

Papercraft Inspirations - - INKING -

This clever project fea­tures a quick and sim­ple way of adding ex­tra in­ter­est to your inked back­grounds


Blend Bro­ken China, Faded Jeans, Dusty Con­cord and Tum­bled Glass ink onto a 9.5x13.5cm piece of white card. Lay a strip of se­quin waste onto the ink then use a wet sponge to lift the ink. Dry with a heat tool.


Once dry, white heat em­boss the swirl from the Star of Light set onto the panel and flick wa­tered-down white paint across it.


Mount the panel onto a 10x14cm piece of white card then use sticky foam pads to add it onto a 10.5x14.5cm pur­ple card blank. Add faux stitch­ing with a white gel pen.


Use Cot­ton White StazOn ink to stamp the Star of Light or­nate star onto ac­etate. Once dry, cut out the star then use sticky foam pads to at­tach it onto the card front.


Stamp the star again and sil­ver heat em­boss the cen­tre. Cut out the cen­tre, colour with wa­tered-down Dis­tress Ink then mount it onto the star on the card front.
