Make It Monday #140 Ink Pad Designs

Happy Sunday dear friends!!! It's been a nice relaxing weekend and I was able to take some time to create a little Papertrey Ink project based on this week's Make it Monday Challenge to put ink pads directly to paper.  

For this challenge, I  ran my Aqua Mist ink pad directly onto the vellum and created a nice subtle Aqua Mist shade of vellum.  Then I ran the tinted vellum through my die cut machine and cut out a nice little banner and a couple of snowflakes.

I added some Peaceful Pinecones and the sweet little sled from Two Feet Deep.  I did add some shading to the pinecones using E57 Light Walnut Copic Marker.  I totally love the look!!


Supplies Used:
Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select White, Aqua Mist, and Vellum Cardstock
Papertrey Ink Red Patterned Paper
Papertrey Ink Pure Poppy, Aqua Mist, Kraft, Dark Chocolate Ink
Papertrey Ink Two Feet Deep and Peaceful Pinecone stamps and dies
Papertrey Ink Fancy Flakes and Confetti Garland Dies

Thanks for stopping by!  Wishing you a wonderful week!!

Kristii, this is just lovely. So reminds me of my childhood in Northern MN. Great idea to "ink" up vellum to create any desired color. I'll have to try that technique. Your colors & design made the perfect Christmas card. Ordered Fancy Flakes dies but Two Feet Deep & Peaceful Pinecones still on my wish list for next year I guess. : )

So nice Kristie!! What a good idea using the vellum for the background. And I soooo like the colors. I'm finding I go to the reds and blues lots.
