Bloggers Challenge - Sketch Challenge


TIGF! Welcome to another Friday Bloggers Challenge - this week I gave the challenge players this sketch to use as inspiration. I created two cards using this sketch - but rotated the sketch to work for my images. For both cards, I used the Spectrum Roll Technique using Caribbean Sea Ink as my color. I did however have to use SU's Shimmer card stock for my Silhouette images, as they did not stamp well on the Matte coated card stock.




This first card uses Natures Silhouette II from Innovative Stamp Creations. The Spectrum Roll on this card is much brighter, as it's the beginning of the roll, and on Shimmer Card Stock, so the color doesn't soak in as much. All images are stamped in Black Archival Ink.
Have you seen this great deal ISC is running on their Stampers Delight Box . This box is filled with awesome products at a great price!

Here's my other take on this weeks challenge. The Spectrum Roll was done on Matte Card Stock, and is actually the end of the run, thus the lighter colors. I trashed the beginning run, while stamping the Silhouettes, as the Black Ink pooled instead of soaking in. The Matte is great for line art images, but bold images don't stamp as nicely in my opinion. The lighthouse is from Our Daily Bread Designs Light of the World.

Here come the questions!!! Archival ink.. is that for scrapbookers? does it need to be heat set? i love your spectrum roll and i think you did a fab job with both projects. :) You rock.
