Coloring with Ink Potion No. 9

They Call it Puppy Love

by Martha Lucia Gomez

Cute puppy card hand painted with Kaleidacolor inks with the sentiment "What would I do without you?" created by Martha Lucia Gomez.

I am sharing a cute Puppy Love card that I colored with a paint brush using Ink Potion No. 9 and Kaleidacolor inks. This is one of the most versatile inks that you will find and use in your projects to obtain great results!

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 40 minutes + dry time



Step 1

Cut the base of the card using vanilla cardstock. The size is 4-1/4 x 11″ with score in 5-1/2″. Take a pattern line stamp and ink it with VersaFine Onyx to create a border. Cover with Clear Embossing Powder and melt with the heat tool.


Step 2

Using Kaleidacolor Fresh Greens ink a stamp set with background or ink splatter design. Don’t rub your stamp over the ink, just touch the stamp over the ink pad and mix the colors. Stamp the image directly on the card base.


Step 3

Take another piece of vanilla cardstock and stamp your favorite dog image using Memento Tuxedo Black. Also stamp your sentiment on a different section of the cardstock.


Step 4

Paint the dog image applying the color form the Kaleidacolor Tomato Vine with a paint brush and a few drops of Ink Potion 9. Mix the colors and create your own coloring effects. I sprayed a bit of potion directly onto an acrylic block and used that as my pallette. Cut the image and sentiment out. I fussy cut the dog, and used a die cut for my sentiment.


Step 5

Stamp paw prints on the card base using VersaFine Onyx. Optionally, you can heat emboss the paws with clear embossing powder.


Step 6

Paste your colored image and sentiment over the decorated card base using dimensional adhesive.
