SOS Cards: Ink Solutions

HEY! The Craft Dash is going to have a new segment called SOS (Send Over Solutions) Cards

Have you ever had a beautiful card panel end up in the trash because you thought you messed it up? happened on this card!

Let’s start at the beginning, you have not seen the June 2023 Hero Arts, My Monthly Hero Kit you are missing out! You can check it out here. (June 2023 MMH Kit). It’s stunning! I couldn’t wait to try it out.

I created the watercolor background using the reactive inks that were included in the kit. (yummy). A project sheet for this card can be found on the RESOURCES Tab that will walk you through the entire process. Today we are focusing on the SOS

I used watercolor paper which was a bit rough and when I stamped it, the image would not clearly stamp. So after several attempts in my MISTI, I ended up with pock marks and I didn’t like it. So take a look at the quick video (my first try at it btw with my new software) to see how I corrected the issue.

Let me know what you think of this quickie video and check out the other pages on my blog. I will be uploading more SOS segments soon. If you have a card that is headed to the trash bin, STOP and send it to me. Go to the contact page and let’s see what we can do to add it to the SOS Line up!

Have a fantastic week! YouTube is still on the way. Baby steps my crafty friends! Be sure to like, share and subscribe. (I mean if you wanna, I would really appreciate it!)

    It’s a great card and thank you for sharing how you “saved” it. The number of backgrounds I have tossed in the trash, almost none in all my many years of crafting. I hate to waste, so find ways to save and use them. 😉
