Guest Design Post by Aditi Mahajan

Hello everyone, Today I am delighted to be guest designing for Tubby Craft. It has been fun playing with the Dye Ink Pads and the Stamp Set sent to me by Shruti! The inks were great for water-colouring, background creation as well as stamping. I have created three projects with these supplies- Floral Invitation Stamp Set; Dye Ink Pads- Hot Pink, Imperial Red, Lemon Yellow, Jet Black, Tangy Orange and Lawn Green.

Here's a look of my first project : Card with coordinating envelope


First up, is an invitation card, with a vellum envelope.
For the background of the card, I lifted two shades of the ink on a piece of cardstock, from a craft mat.
The image is stamped on a separate paper and coloured with a water brush and the inks.
I then adhered it to the base with foam tape and stamped the sentiment.
I distressed the edges and mounted it on a piece of pattern paper.
I have stamped the same image on the vellum envelope in the opposite direction as that of the card.




My second project is a Journal Page. 



Again, for the background, I first lifted the Orange ink from a craft mat diluted with water. 

Next, I add a darker ink through a stencil. This gave me great layers. 

I used a different stencil and randomly added some black stencilling. 

On a separate piece of paper, I lifted some contrasting ink colours and then stamped the image with the Black Ink. 

I fussy cut these and added on the page with some string to mimic flower baskets. 

I completed the page with a few flowers, butterflies and a phrase. 





My final project is a pair of ATC Cards.




For these, I first stencilled a pattern with the Green Ink. 

Retaining the stencil in the same position, I added 3D Matte Gel onto the inked design and let it dry. 

I next used a blending tool and covered the base with Yellow ink. In this manner, I had the green design and yellow in between.  

I then used the same stamp set and black ink and stamped it on the background, for contrast and interest. 

I layered some gauge, flowers, sequence and word to complete them.
