Pink and Gold, double inking technique


I’m playing tic-tac-toe today, with the Paper Players :


I chose to go vertically : “Ribbon”, “Thank You” and “Any shade of Pink”. Well, it’s rather “many shades of Pink” because I wanted to create an ombre effect 😉 . I have various shades of pink inks but I wanted something very subtle, so I used the double-stamping technique to stretch my inks and get different shades of the same colour.

The lightest shade chevron is stamped with Stampin’up Pink Pirouette, then I double-stamped the second chevron with the same colour (you may want to use a Stamp-a-ma-jig or a stamp positioner to help you stamp exactly on your first image). I repeated the technique with  the third chevron, stamped once with Stampin’up Blushing Bride and the forth, double-stamped to get a darker tone.

I added velum paper and a ribbon, and die-cut a “Thank You” in a gold sheet to add a bit of glamour.

A fun card to make 🙂

    As always, Delphine, your card is stunning! I love the ombre effect, as well as that pretty little vellum layer! The gold words are icing on the cake! Thanks for playing with the Players this week!
