Fun Stampers Journey Clear Pigment Ink to Create a Background
When you use Clear Pigment Ink on stamps that will be stamped on card stock, the stamped image takes on the color of the card stock and gives it a deeper shade for the stamped image. In the photo above I used it with the Stuck on You Stamp Set and Limeade Splash and River Stone Card Stocks.
Experiment with the card stock you have on hand. Fun to create your own background designs too. Not all color will work with this technique. Black Licorice would be too dark to show the stamped image clearly.
The Simply Beautiful sentiment is part of the Stuck on You stamp and there is even a matching die set. The die set is on back-order until May 20th. Just an FYI.
I cut the square and the tag using dies. The tag was sponged on the edges and over the top of the sentiment.
River Stone (gray) square is adhered flat to the card base. The Whip Cream Tag piece was added on with Journey Foam Squares to add dimension to the card front. Also added in Candy Dots to the tag.
Another use (not in the above sample)
The Clear Pigment Ink Pad is also used with Embossing Powders.
1. Stamp your image using the Clear Pigment Ink Pad
2. Sprinkle with our embossing powder
3. Now heat set uing our Journey Heat Gun
This will give a really nice raised finish. We have Journey Clear, Journey White, Journey Gold, and Journey Silver Embossing Powders. Pg 209 of the current main catalog.
