StazOn Pigment ink is Perfect for Stamping on Vellum

StazOn Pigment ink is Perfect for Stamping on Vellum

Hi everyone! I’m excited to share a new ink line – StazOn Pigment with you today. While you can stamp on acetate, metal, glass and other non-porous surfaces with this ink, I decided to show you how easy and perfect it is to use StazOn Pigment with vellum. It dries super quickly (like almost instantly) on vellum, and that’s super impressive! I love how this is the *only* pigment ink that dries so fast on paper as well. If you enjoy using pigment inks, you must check this out!

See How To Upcycle A Tin With Stazon Pigment Ink

See How To Upcycle A Tin With Stazon Pigment Ink

Did you hear about the new StazOn Pigment Ink? A quick drying opaque ink that you can use on all of the surfaces that you use the original StazOn ink. This will take your mixed media game to a whole new level of fun. Today am sharing a mermaid themed gift tin that I made for my daughter in law. It’s got layer after layer of StazOn Pigment Ink as well as a few other fun products from Imagine like Goosebumps spray, irRESISTible Pico Embellisher, On Point Glue.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour

Directions


Step 1

Prepare the tin you will be working with by sanding off any artwork. 180 or 220 grit sandpaper works well for this process. Wash and dry the tin to remove dust, debris, and oils from your skin.


Step 2

Use sponge daubers and StazOn inks to build layers of color beginning with the darkest layer on the bottom. Mariner Blue was applied to the very bottom rim of the lid to create the deepest and darkest part of the ocean. Let dry. Shamrock Green was the next layer which overlapped the Mariner Blue a bit and was applied approximately half way up the tin. Peacock Feathers was used for the third layer of ink, it was pounced darkest above the green but was also pounced over both the Shamrock Green and Mariner Blue to help blend the colors together. Snowflake was applied on the upper quarter of the lid, it was then lightly pounced into the Peacock Feathers to bring a look of natural gradation.


Step 3

The mermaid stamp was inked with Piano Black StazOn Pigment ink and immediately stamped on the lid. Due to the fact that the lid has a slightly curved surface, I have found that it works best if you hold the lid in one hand and the stamp in the other and bring them together. This allows you to see that the stamp is making contact as you press the stamp around the contour of the lid. Let the ink dry completely.


Step 4

Spritz the lid with Clear Goosebumps Texture Spray to create an illusion of water. Let this medium dry before moving on. Use Wedding Dress irRESISTible Pico Embellisher to create bubbles in the water.


Step 5

Use a sponge dauber to color the side of the lid with StazOn Pigment in Mariner Blue and to frame the stamped image on top of the lid.


Step 6

Selectively apply On Point Glue to the lid and lightly sprinkle glitter over the wet adhesive. Let the glue dry completely, shake off excess glitter and replace it for future use.

Learn How To Create A Layered Rose Stamp With Stazon Pigment

I have used one of my all-time favorite Rose stamp for today’s card project. I love this stamp because of its realistic layering effect. To achieve this beautiful layering I used a couple of ink types today. I used the Memento Inkpads, our brand new Stazon Pigment inks, Radiant Neon inkpad, and VersaMagic inkpads & I was very happy to see the final outcome and the way they all work together.

by Jowilna Nolte

Make a Peacock Feather Design with All-Purpose Inks

The month of March celebrates the beautiful color in Peacock Feathers and with so many ink choices in just the perfect colors, it was hard to choose what to create. But in the end, my love for watercolors and the stunning effects won and I created this art journal page using All-Purpose Inks.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 30 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Color a sheet of watercolor paper. Paint a layer of water on top and then drop All-Purpose Ink onto the paper to let it mix and flow. Mist with more water to activate and promote flow. Leave to dry.


Step 2

Die-cut a peacock feather using a Silhouette machine. Paint with a layer of gesso and then add color using peacock color shades of All-Purpose Inks and a paint brush.


Step 3

Once the feather is dry, use On Point Glue to adhere the feather to the watercolor paper piece.


Step 4

To add shading and interest, add some grey and brown ink to your craft mat and mist with water, then paint in shadows. Use a graphite pencil for shading even more and adding details.


Step 5

Add some additional stamping and a quote as desired. Then adhere the page into your art journal or frame it as a home decor piece.

Learn How To Use Rose Gold Shimmer Stix For A Beautiful Card

The new Sheer Shimmer Stix shows the range of products from Imagine and how the control of the dauber adds just the right amount of shimmer and shine to any crafting projects. Take a look at how this die-cut element is transformed into the star of the show with a few strokes of genius using the clever new Shimmer Stix.

Skill: Advanced
Time: 20 minutes

Directions


Step 1

Use a pre-cut heart or download the cut file from the link in the products list below and cut with a Cricut machine. Create the die-cut heart and take it apart. Use a jumbo dauber and blend Radiant Neon Coral around the outside edges.


Step 2

Use the Rose Gold Sheer Shimmer Stix to add shimmer over the inked heart.


Step 3

Use the same Shimmer Stix to add color and shine to the outside of the die-cut heart. Leave to dry.


Step 4

Ink a chipboard sentiment using Radiant Neon Coral ink pad.


Step 5

Ink the chipboard sentiment with VersaMark ink pad and sprinkle with glitter embossing powder. Heat the powder until fully melted with your heat gun. Use On Point Glue to adhere the outside and the inner of the die-cut heart to the front of your folded card.


Step 6

Use Rose Gold Sheer Shimmer Spritz to add colored splats to the background of your card and leave the ink drops to dry. Adhere the embossed sentiment to the front of the card and finish off diamanté. The shimmer created by the embossed sentiment and that of the Sheer Shimmer Stix and Spritz makes for an amazing shiny card.
