Walnut Ink Stain




Hi everybody!! Kathie McGuire here today with the Walnut Ink Resist technique from 4/08.

This technique is so fast and easy and I'm always amazed at how stunning the results are! Have you tried it??

With such a stunning background, I decided to keep the card simple and add embellishments that wouldn't compete with the watery stained look that the technique creates. So, I added a small bit of tule by wrapping it around the technique layer like a package and then just taped it in the back. Easy! Then I added my matting and attached all of that to the card base.

Lastly, I added the stick pin with a few beads from my stash and held them all on the pin by putting a little bit of tacky glue on the last bead.

I hope you've enjoyed seeing the project! Thanks for looking!
