Morning all...

Good morning , hope you all slept well....

I am still a little fragile after my visit to the Dentist yesterday but I am hopeful that the extraction mean I don't have to have an operation on my everything crossed.....

Back to last weekend, and here are some more pictures of my samples...

These little bottles of ink are wonderful and hold so many possibilities....

VersaMark Ink , white embossing powder for a resist....wonderful technique....

This one is my favourite....hope you like it too.

And close up....the colours are just fab...

It works well with the Parakeets....

Spectrum Noir pencils are great over the ink...To add some shade and depth..

Remember your stencils work well with this technique ...

I would love to hear about how you use them....

I have a day of sample making with new stamps and stencils....oh what a shame....but someone has to do it....

Have a great day....whatever you are up too...

Thanks for looking in....

Much love and hugs...

  1. Wow Jo I love these pieces of art. I've not seen these bottles of ink before but I love them!!
    Hope you're feeling a lot better now that the troublesome tooth has been put in the bin!!
    Have a great day sample making - I'm doing the same today xxxx

  2. I was lucky enough to see these in person, fantastic artwork Jo xx p's. Hope you're feeling better as the day goes on 😊

    1. Thanks Lisa , you are very kind. It was great to see you and catch

  3. Not sure how but I seem to be a few post behind, how does that happen? I really like the white embossing on the colours. I had a white powder a few years ago and it was awful, very bitty and when heated it would crack and drop off! Steered clear of it since then but I really want to give this a try. Which one do you use? Hope you teeth have settled down. Xx

    1. Hi Donna, I use the white embossing powder that Barb is a Stampendous one and is perfect as it is a Detail is available on the Clarity website and I can thoroughly recommend it...
      I am feeling much better thank you but still taking things slowly

    2. Thanks Jo I will look it up. I have a couple of these ones from Clarity in cream and black with sparkle in them ad they always work well. After a busy weekend and a dentist trip you deserve to to take things slow. Xx

  4. Hi Jo,
    I'm loving how you've used the inks, will have to have a go!
    Did you do this on water colour paper?
    Take it easy,
