Make-Art-Challenge-Blog: Archival Reinkers


Tanya & I were busy again in the studio, and today we worked on some cards for the Make-Art-Challenge-Blog with Wendy Vecchi.  I won last month's challenge ... let's see if I can do it again!  You can check out the blog by clicking here, and get in on the fun.  If you sign up on Bloglovin', you'll get a notification each month for the new challenge.  This month's prize is Wendy Vecchi products from Stamper's Anonymous!

The challenge is to use the Archival reinkers, so what better way than to do Wendy's alcohol/reinker technique?  We each started out with 8 pieces of Ranger's Specialty Stamping Paper.  We played with all of Wendy's colors and created all kinds of backgrounds.  I finished first, and Tanya still had 3 more to make.

We started to make cards, and I spent the rest of the morning working on this one, where Tanya got 3 done!  We decided I'm quicker at backgrounds, and she's quicker at embellishing.  lol


This particular piece is probably the one that looks the least like her famed technique, because I only used one color, Dandelion.  You can see a little of the layers on the left side.


I used an old set by Wendy called Just Sew Artsy LCS028.  The saying is from another old set, Seriously Art LCS034.  The saying in stamped on one of the other backgrounds I made with the reinkers ... I believe Dandelion, Leaf Green and Red Geranium.  I stitched it onto my card, but the scalloped stitches are from a stamp.

Below, are the 3 cards Tanya made:






I'm trying to get her to start posting what she makes on Pinterest so she can enter these challenges too.
