Danny Sympathy

Gina K Designs January 2022

Gina’s challenge for the January 2022 Monthly Mix Challenge is to use GKD inks and spritz with water to achieve a water reactive look. The inks I used on my cardstock were GKD’s Powder Blue, Lovely Lavender and Bubblegum with a little spritz of water, blotted with a paper towel and repeat gives a very cool look to the ink blended panel. The stamps used for this card are GKD’s Friendly Silhouettes and Garden Silhouettes for the sentiment. I needed to do some stamp surgery on the sentiment and took multiple times to line up using my Misti and acetate sheet.

This card is for an old truck driver friend of my husband who passed at the great age of 93. Happy trucking to Danny.

Thanks for stopping in for a peek. Take care and be safe.

  1. I agree on the cool look. I had always heard GK inks were a high-bred so not surprised they did so well with this technique.Plus your talents at giving it a go.

    1. Yes, the inks did leave nice water making. I believe I should have left the mask on the left side to stamp my silhouette so it wouldn’t have gone over the edge. Thanks for your support.

  2. Sorry for the loss, but he did live to a good age didn’t he. Its a lovely sympathy card and I like the look you achieved with the inks and spritzing.

    1. Thanks, Johanna, I almost forgot about the water spritzing and stamped the image first. Boy I was glad the black ink didn’t run with the water.

    1. Thanks, Lisa, I enjoy stamping with silhouette images and a little ink blending. I’m hoping the family will like the card.
