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.
