Watercoloring with dye ink pads Flower embellishment

For the past two months we've been working on our next class, “Technique Toolbox: creative uses for dye ink pads” and my mind can't quite get off of all the wonderful and creative ways to use this important tool on your card making projects!

If you are a frequenter (is that a word!??) 'round these parts, you know this already!  I've been doing lots of videos with dye ink pad techniques – mostly watercoloring techniques.

Our class kicks off tomorrow for StampNation Members (with a $10 discount code!)…if you are not a member, registration will be open on Wednesday.

Until then, please watch this video:

The Hennah Elements Stamp set by Altenew is a great set to play with and the images stamp super crisp and clear when you use a Versafine Ink pad.

Once you use your Dye Ink Pads to watercolor the flowers, making Enameled Flower embellishments is easy with Stampin' Up's Crystal Effects or Ranger's Glossy Accents.

Simply coat the flowers with one of the mediums and let it dry.  It should take around 30 minutes to completely dry.  They are beautiful when they are done!

Once I was done with the first card, I made two more with the remaining flowers.  This video (along with 500 other videos!) will be up on StampNation today!
