Ink Lifting with All That You Are

Before I get into today's project I want to share some new things that Stampin' Up now has available.

We have Storage units now available!

Product List

Now onto today's project.

Ink Lifting..Today I am going share how to do what I call Ink Lifting.  I will also share two different videos from two different people on how they did it.  They both call it something different. One is from Rick Adkins and he calls it Watercolor Bleaching and the other is from Jennifer McGuire and she refers to it as Water Painting.

I defiantly want to play with this some more but wanted to share what I have done so far.

Although it may look a little intimidating, it's not.  I used Pineapple Punch, Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry and Mango Melody for this card.

On a piece of Shimmery White randomly stamp the flower with Versa Mark and emboss with White Embossing Powder.(don't forget to first use your embossing buddy)  Now just start blending lightest to darkest with all your inks.  I have been using the Yoseng Makeup Brushes for all my blending.  I like our sponges and daubers and they all have a purpose, but for blending I have been using these and have been very happy with them.  After you are finished blending, you then want to buff the top with a paper towel or dry rag.  Now take a paint brush and a cup of water and start painting in the areas you want to lift the paint off.  I did just the flower area.  Where you paint the water, dab with a paper towel to lift it back up.  It will then start lightening that area.  On the card above I went a little darker.  So you can really see the difference.

Another sample of the yellows.  This one I was much light with my blending.

I also did one in a green pallet.

Here are the two video's I mentioned.  Rick is a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, so he used all Stampin' Inks to do this technique.

Jennifer is a Stamping Guru and has her own blog and works with several different brands.  I like to watch her videos and what she does with other products and incorporate that with Stampin' Up products.
