For this month, it’s was such a pleasure to make projects with Tsunkineko’s new StazOn Pigment Inks. These ink behave like pigment inks, however, they are permanent like the original StazOn ink. As if it does not get any better; this ink also takes details incredibly well. For this card, I used Dura-Lar film (it’s like vellum paper) to create a dimensional effect by stenciling bird images with the Peacock Feathers color of StazOn Pigment. I overlaid the stenciled film on a moonlit night background; also created with StazOn Pigment inks. It made for a great backdrop for the Peacock colored birds.
Time: 30 minutes
Stencil the birds onto the Dura-Lar matte film. This film looks like vellum, except that it’s archival. It’s very strong, you can remove your images with rubbing alcohol or water as many times as you want and it does not warp. Permanent inks, like StazOn Pigment inks, do not rub off. I like using it because you can create layered dimensional effects.
Cut out a circle for the moon. This will be used as a mask when inking the background.
Place the circle over the cardstock paper and ink the background using the Piano Black StazOn Pigment ink.
Ink the background with the Snowflake and Koala Gray StazOn Pigment inks.
Add a little color to the background with the Peacock Feathers StazOn Pigment ink. Ink lightly and in random areas, do not ink the entire background.
Spray the tacky spray to the background and adhere the Dura-Lar sheet.
Lightly ink sections of the Dura-Lar background with the Koala Gray and Peacock Feathers StazOn inks. Do not ink over the birds. Stamp the sentiment.
