Create card backgrounds with layers of color and pattern!
Izink is an acrylic-based pigment ink; it has opaque coverage and it’s permanent so it can be used to create layers, as I’ve done here with a stencil. Yet it also blends with water or alcohol. It's easy to use and gives you lots of options for fresh, fun color.

You Will Need

Izink inks: Orchid, Mimosa (Clearsnap)
Rollagraph brayer (Clearsnap)
Lattice Art Screen by Ann Butler (Clearsnap)
Black Surfacez ink (Clearsnap)
ColorBox stylus applicator (Clearsnap)
Stamps: Heartfelt Greetings (Hot Off The Press/Paper Wishes)
Stick It adhesive
Wildflowers cutting die (Hot Off The Press/Paper Wishes)
Cardstock: Glossy white, matte black, matte yellow
Blank white card
Pink gingham ribbon
Self-adhesive gemstones (yellow green)

  • Step 1

    Place glossy white cardstock on surface. Shake the Orchid Izink and squeeze some drops randomly onto cardstock. Brayer to move the color around. Repeat with Mimosa ink.

  • Step 2

    Place the Lattice stencil on the brayered background. Squeeze some Orchid Izink onto your palette, load the stylus and apply through some areas of the stencil. Remove the stencil. (It can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol.)

  • Step 3

    Cover the card front with yellow cardstock. Trim the Izink background to slightly smaller than the card front and mat on black. Use Surfacez ink to stamp the sentiment in the top corner. Apply Stick It adhesive to black cardstock and die-cut the flower silhouette, then glue to the cardstock. Glue the matted piece to the card front.

  • Step 4

    Tie a bow in gingham ribbon and glue as shown. Add self-adhesive gemstones.
