We all know that phrase, “Happy
As crafters we use it often to describe a project or technique that we attempted, but, it did not go as planned. Well, today, we are going to explore what became my “happy accident.”
This past weekend, with coffee in hand, I entered my studio, determined to learn this technique I saw online.
I felt pretty confident. I had watched all the videos and read about the supplies used…
I got this, yes! …Ummm, No. First try I quickly realized I had to have a Dye Ink Pad. Then the second, third fourth… what am I missing!? Maybe a different paper? Nope. I am back to the drawing board on the original technique I was trying to learn, but I am here today to show you the “Happy Accident” technique that I stumbled upon.
You want to ink up your Gel Press with Dye Ink and a Brayer. Sounds simple, right? I forgot to mention, this little “happy accident” is quite simple, but yet has endless possibilities.
Now it is time to get inky with the Distress Inks!
Ink the edges of your card. I used Weathered Wood.
Then place a circle stencil down for your moon and ink it up! (I cut mine out with my Silhouette Cameo and stencil paper so I can use over and over again).
