Hi There... Jenny here :)
Yep, I'm CASEing the awesome Jennifer McGuire this week and her Distress Ink Lifting technique. You can find a video and more details of the technique on her blog post here :)
As soon as I saw Jennifer's video I thought how great the technique would work with the hydrangea bloom and leaves in the Winnie & Walter set called Addie's Garden, so I set about white heat embossing them on regular cardstock as per the instructions. The colour lifting did not have such a dramatic effect on my card but it still bleached the blue enough so I could add pink and green to the areas.
I used exactly the same colours and technique as Jennifer shows in her video and finished off my card with a faux stitched line and a sentiment.
I wanted to try the same technique with a different colour background and flower so here is my second card....
The card is small at 10cm square.... the tulip panel started off longer but I had to chop it down to edit out a major boo-boo!! .... I really like the final cut ;)
I added a simple black frame for dramatic contrast and a small sentiment from my stash of very old stamp sets!!
This is a good trial and error technique and definitely a fun one for experimenting with colour and stamps..... perfect for florals, hope you try it too :)
Thanks for stopping by :)
