Create Mango Madness with VersaMagic DewDrops

Who doesn’t love a happy color like Mango?! Well, today I combine two sunny VersaMagic colors to create a fun textured “Yes” themed encouragement card using recycled paper. Take a look at how I create loads of interest on this happy card with this versatile pigment ink, some texture paste, and a die cut. The DewDrop inkpad wears its color and versatility like a superstar.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes + dry time

Directions

VersaMagic in Mango Madness
Step 1

Create your own stamp by die-cutting small foam circles and adhering them to an acrylic block. Tack N Peel is perfect for turning anything into a stamp. Ink the stamps using VersaMagic in Mango Madness and stamp repeatedly onto your background.


Step 2

Add a small amount of VersaMagic in Mango Madness onto your craft mat or a plastic sheet. Lightly press the ink pad onto the surface to transfer some ink.


Step 3

Add a small amount of texture paste next to the VersaMagic ink on the craft mat. Start off with a small amount and add more as you need it to avoid wasting.


Step 4

Use your palette knife to mix the ink into the paste to create a colored texture paste.


Step 5

Apply the paste through a stencil onto the stamped background. Overlap the stamped images several times to create interest. Leave the stenciled paste to dry thoroughly.


Step 6

Use a paintbrush to lift some VersaMagic in Thatched Straw and create a washed watercolor effect over the stamped and stenciled circles. Mix the ink with a small amount of water and paint it directly onto your background, then leave to dry. Add color to a chipboard circle using two shades of VersaMagic ink and adhere the circle to your card. Add sewing details to the circle. Finish off your card with diamanté and sequins.
