Video Tutorial by Stella ...

Stella shows you how to create this lovely card using inking techniques
You will need cardstock, acetate, various rubber stamps & ink for this project

We would love for you to try this technique, it doesn't need to be themed.
If you do please leave us a link to your own take on this & we will visit your blog for a look.
Anyone that takes part will be offered a guest spot on our DT for future challenges.

DT Inspiration Today...

...Is brought to you from Julia aka Ju, she created this fantastic LO using a photo that she took during a walk along the river bank at dusk of a majestic swan. I love how the last of the day's light has touched the swan's neck & added the hint of colour.

Ju, chose to scrapbook in size A4 [8.5x11] for this project & here is how she put it together. She used a light peice of cardstock for the base, then taking a sheet of printable acetate & spraying it with some black Cosmic Shimmer Mist, she chose some random rubber stamps to remove some of the excess ink while at the same time leaving subtle images. When dry, she stuck the acetate to the cardstock  & added the photograph, to which she had added journaling around the edge. Added some black & white glitter strips to break up the background  to complete the finished page.

Please take a minute to visit Julia's blog, where you will find some lovely projects to inspire you
Thank you Ju for another great page!
