Inspirational #108: Get Extra Inky

Welcome to Red Rubber Inspirationals!
We are excited to bring  you a weekly challenge that will focus on stamping and related techniques to inspire and enable you to create art!

Inspirational #108 ~ Get Extra Inky

Deadline for submitting you projects is Wednesday, February 26, at 11:59 PM US Central Time.

Hello! Drea here with another challenge for you! This week lets focus on getting extra inky. I want to see at least 2 different colors of ink on the same stamp. For complete Inspirational Rules, please read them here.

Here's my Inspirational!

I scrapped this recent photo of my little Sister on a trip to Canada using the So splattered stamp set with 2 colors of Palette Ink (Claret and Cote d'Azure). To make the small circles I used the Lotsa Dotsa stamp set, using a Q-tip to apply 3 different colors of inks. After tearing and water distressing the edges, I added some old vintage buttons that once belonged to my Grandma and Great Grandma.

Paula-Kay did a wonderful job getting extra inky with this beautiful card that she made, using pressed flowers stamp set and friendship blocks for the sentiment!

Look how much more depth those flowers have using different colors of ink! I'm sure it's making everyone long for some sun.

I hope you are inspired by my Inspirational this week and link up a newly created project to this post by the deadline! We look forward to seeing what you create!!


Are you an inspiration? 

Inspiration Projects ~ After each Inspirational, the Inspiration Team will choose three projects from those submitted via the link-up tool below which we think best reflect the theme of the Inspirational. 

Each artist whose project is chosen receives a special Inspiration Badge they can display on their blog ~ and we'll showcase these projects each Monday following the end of the inspirational!
