I’ve got a great project to share with you guys from one of our fabulous illustrators and designers…

Hello there everyone! Lydia here with you today and I’m so excited to be sharing a project with you using the new Spa Inks!!!

DSC00134 I started by inking my galaxy background. I used Sauna, Peppermint Scrub, Daydream, Royal Treatment and Juniper Mist.

I started with the lightest ink and worked my way up to the darker one, then went over the same patches again this time working from darkest to lightest to get this awesome blending.

DSC00135 Once I was happy with the panel I sprinkled with water ( I love how well the CP inks react with water) and added a few stars using Fabre Castelle Silver Galeto mixed with some water.

When the panel was completely dry I could then add my sentiment and a few images, I used Best In You Stamp Set to first white heat emboss the sentiment and then added roses and leaves from the same set.

DSC00136 Thanks so much for stopping by today and I hope my card inspired you to break out your inks!

Hugs, Lydia
