Just Add Ink #237

Hey Everyone

I think I may actually be losing my memory!  I totally forgot to publish this post on Friday night.  Looks like I might have to start putting dates in my calendar so I don’t forget again. My excuse is that I’ve been super busy at work and sit down at night and nothing else registers.

This weeks challenge at Just Add Ink is to:

Just Add Clear Block Stamping

I’m not going to lie – I struggled.  I tried new inks, old inks, markers directly to the clear block and also a bit of heat embossing.  After binning heaps of cardstock, I finally came up with this.  I used my old style Crumb Cake ink to create this background that I think I kept re-inking and stamped over 6 times.  I then finger-walked Dictionary over bits of the background.  I’m going to have to try this technique again at some stage so I can get a bit more practice.


Come and join us this week at Just Add Ink.  Head over to the challenge and check out the gorgeous and varied inspiration from the design team.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. It hardly looks like you struggled Narelle! All I can say is that I’m glad I wasn’t the only one 😉
    Beautiful card and love how you have used this technique Narelle, I don’t think any more practice is required! Lou xo
