Become quite a fan of Less is More, it is usually not my style but fun to play around with! This week they are stepping out of Mandi's comfort zone, or so she thought. It is one layer week and the challenge is to use ink.
There are all sorts of inks available to play with and various techniques to mess around with. For this card the image was stamped in Memento and then Windsor and Newton drawing inks dry brushed over. First the brush is loaded with ink and then swiped off on a piece of scrap paper until almost dry, then it is dragged over the image. While quite liking this think eventually it will be cut out with a Nestie and layered onto a plain white card.
Very little ink has been used colouring just a small section of card. The image has been stamped in black Archival ink over the colour and white card.
All good clean messy fun and no cleaning up after!
