Modern Colour blocked Christmas card using ink pads.3:14:00 PM
I love making quick and easy Christmas cards. And with the range of Chiswick inks it really is so easy, even the kids can join in the fun. For this modern version of a Christmas card I used the inks directly to paper to create and fun and beautiful colour blocked effect.
Select 3-5 colours of ink pads from the Chiswick range – I used a selection of Pearlescent and Dye ink pads. Place the ink pads on your white cardstock and apply pressure to get a coloured square. Ten move onto the next colour of ink pad overlapping colours as you go along.
Immediately after “stamping” the ink onto your cardstock, apply a layer of clear embossing powder over the ink squares.
Heat set the clear embossing powder using your Chiswick heat gun. Remember that once the powder turns shiny it is done.
