Inspire Me Monday: One Ink Wonder


Howdy everyone!  I’m Allison Cope and I’m the hostess for today’s Inspire Me Monday. I hope you’re having a great week so far.

A few weeks ago, Julie Koerber our Creative Confetti Challenge director had challenged all of you to create a monochromatic card.  Click here to view that challenge and all it’s awesome entries.  I couldn’t help but take that challenge and I created this holiday favorite of mine…


This card features the “Glitter House Village” stamp set.

I had so many comments on this card that I thought I’d share the very easy technique I used to create it.  But this time I'm using the glowing new stamp set “Let Your Heart Be Light”.

So join me in the craftroom today.  Don’t forget to bring along that favorite beverage too!

And here’s another quick look at the card I created for you today using Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Ultra Marine Brusho pigments.


I just love the way it turned out.  There’s some extra special about the way the Distress Inks react with those Brusho pigments that lends to a very different focal image on your card.

Thanks so much for joining me today!  I’d love to know what you think of my card and tutorial.
