It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! And what a simple but fun one we have this week! Let's get inky! Love it! Whether you want to keep it simple or you want to go all out with a colorful project, everything is possible, as long as you use some ink.
I chose a tag for my project and went with the most versatile ink I know, Distress Ink. Distress Ink has really beautiful colors and the properties of this ink are amazing. You can emboss with it, blend, all sorts of techniques, and the reaction with water is so cool. Normally I don't actually use more than three colors Distress Ink for my backgrounds. But for this Inky challenge I went all out and I used 7. I chose 6 different kind of bright colors and one brown. They blend into each other so beautifully.
One of my favorite techniques with Distress Ink is the Spritz and Flick. The ink reacts beautifully with water droplets and gives such a nice effect. To give it a little bit more depth I used the exclusive Moroccan stencil from Simon Says Stamp with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink in the same place I used it before. For some real texture I used some black colored Modeling Paste with the Sunset Sunrise stencil.
To let the sentiment pop a bit I stamped it with Archival Jet Black and embossed with Clear Embossing powder. I love it that you can also emboss with Archival Ink!
