Use Ink!

Good morning on this (yet again) dull Saturday in August!
At least we have the Less Is More challenge to get us up and raring to go eh LIMettes?! Speaking of which, here is the card I have quickly made before I go out for the day to York, with my new man, Pete! The challenge this week is One Layer Card - Use Ink! Now I don't know too many techniques but it was really nice to colour this in with ink pads rather than the usual Promarkers! 
 The picture above shows how I used a tile to dab the ink onto so I could use water and a paintbrush to apply them to my card.
And this is the finished result! The stamp is a freebie from Simply Homemade a few issues ago, and it's the first time it's been inked!
Hope you like it! Have a fab Saturday all! :)

  24. I love the image, and I do think that water painting with the inks adds a softness, less dramatic than promarkers. Lynn x
