Authentique Paper & Hampton Art Blog Hop- Day 3
Now comes the fun part! Using any of the ColorBox Archival Dye Inkpads, mix up a few colors by taking a sponge or other porous material to dab, swirl and blend colors. On this card, I used a combination of Gooseberry, Dark Cherry and Frosted Plum. After I felt that I had mixed the colors to the tones I liked, I used a damp cloth to rub off the inks from the embossed areas. Don't rub too hard, or you may take some of the paper with you.
Once it was completely dry, I cut some chipboard to make the embossed section more dimensional, added a contrasting May Arts ribbon, and layered my newly designed sentiment on some of the papers from the Remembrance Collection.
