Altenew Academy Project #6...

Hi! My second post for the day as part of my cards made for the Altenew Academy. I made a card based on the Irresistible Inking Techniques class by Sarah Naumann.

Here is my card.

I started with a large acrylic block which I inked with the Warm Gray mini ink cubes. I spritzed it with water and then stamped on watercolor paper. For some reason, the color changed when the paper was dry. This is still a big mystery. But I liked the result. I stamped the images from the Mini Blossoms stamp set and stamped with Jet Black ink. Once it was dry, I used Rose Petal and Sea Shore mini ink cube sets to color the images.

I used the Filled Alpha stamp set to stamp the sentiment in Jet Black ink. To finish I added a few sequins from my stash and mounted the panel on a black card base. Here is a close up.

This is one of my favorite cards. I love the technique and also the watercoloring. The black ink did bleed a bit. So I will be careful in the future.

Entering this card in the following Challenge:
