Here's how I did it:
1) Stamp "Love" or any stamp you want with black Stazon ink, which is a permanent ink that is NOT water soluble.
2) Using an Aqua Painter (brush tip tool with water chamber to create a water color look), I swished on some Strawberry Slush ink. Here's a trick: instead of drawing up ink from the ink pad directly, squeeze your ink pad together gently while the cover is still on. You will draw up a little ink in the lid and that is what you dip your Aqua Painter in. Believe it or not, you need very little ink. It will take a couple of minutes for this to dry.
3) Decorate with washi tape, paper clips or embellishments of your choice.
That's it! Couldn't be easier. This is a technique/card idea that is particular good for mass producing. If you have 20 valentines to make, you could do it with this in under an hour, I promise!
My Card Buffet was a great success and very fun! Watch for the next one, coming sometime this spring, featuring Easter, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Graduation and more!
I am putting in an order in on Monday if there is anything you need~~ let me know. This is a great time to buy the stuff on your wish list and stock up on basics like paper, ink and adhesives. For every $50 you spend, you choose a free item from the Sale-A-Bration brochure. Check out my Staimpin'Up website for all the details... link is located on the right side bar!
Have a glorious Sunday!
