In this cardmaking tutorial, Nicole shares one of her favorite fall color combos using VersaColor inks. Nicole swatches out jewel-tone colors in dark pink with a rich true blue mixed in with a light warm splatter with Delicata. Pigment inks are a perfect ink for blending a colorful gradient from two different color ranges.
This DIY Mazel Tov greeting card (or Good Luck greeting card) is topped with a gold heat embossed vellum layer. This beautiful style is a perfect card for a newlywed couple. Enjoy!
I had fun creating the background using VersaFine Clair ink pads: Blue Belle, Purple Delight, Tulip Red, Summertime, Green Oasis, and Nocturne (Black). I picked the ink up with a makeup sponge and started sponging it on white cardstock. I stamped the lighthouse image from the Light House Stamp Set with VersaFine Clair Nocturne Ink Pad, and then I heat set the ink with craft heater. I colored the image with ShinHan Twin Touch Markers and Colorless Blender Marker. After that, I fussy cut the image, and I added it on the card with 3D foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment with VersaFine Clair Blue Belle and trimmed it.
Do you know how your inks work together? Perhaps you’re not getting the results you expect. That’s when layer swatching is a helpful activity. Join Nicole as she explores the VersaFine line of inks to see how they interact when stamping different swatches in layers, much like you would with a layering stamp. You’ll discover all the amazing colors that can be achieved by stamping various colors together to create new colors. Even though VersaFine inks are pigment inks, they layer just like dye inks!
