I'm here today with my DT card for our new Inkspirational challenge, "connect". Often when we have word prompts (or when CASology has a tricky cue word for example) I google synonyms and words related to that word... And that's what I did this time too. One of the words related to "connect" was "touch" and that made me think of "hugs". This NBUS (never before used) W+9 holiday stamp was waiting to be inked and that was it, my direction for this challenge was decided! :) Click HERE for all the DT projects, you'll love them!
I used my Copics and white gel pen to color in the image + did some basic masking for stenciling the sky design with a snowflake stencil and light blue ink. I love how this turned out! I haven't had time for coloring lately and I was very happy to have a free day today and to practice on my blending skills again. I tried new cardstock: it's not specific blending card but it is meant for crafting. It's called Vivaldi by Canson. I really liked working with this card. Copics just glided on it! Word of warning though if you want to try this paper: it does take longer than normal for Memento (or any ink I'd guess) to dry on this surface. I heat set it with my heat gun after a couple of messy attempts! Your coloring could also bleed more easily (go outside lines) but this wasn't a problem for me really after I got the hang of the card. I really recommend this! It's something a bit different!
Thanks for popping by and I hope to see you at Inkspirational!
