Inky Fingers

I've been getting seriously inky fingers playing around with stamps and ink but they do gradually return to normal colour - until the next time!! On this card I've used brayering and sponging with a Kaleidocolour ink pad using Elusive Images Eastern Grasses stamp set. The small image background was done with a brayer onto coated card from Clarity Stamps, stamped with black ink and clear embossed and the larger background was ordinary white card sponged with the same inks using trusty cut'n'dry foam and then stamped using grey and black ink (not embossed). I just added a narrow punched border and a greeting on a scrap of the brayered card cut with a Stampin Up punch.


  1. What a lovely card how you have done the background....certainly worth inky fingers.


  2. Val this is lovely..
