Reinker Technique - Rev Up The Fun Birthday

Today's card is one I created for my Technique class this month. 

It features a Technique using Re inkers to create the background.

I used four colours all from the Subtle Collection - So Saffron, Calypso Coral, Marina Mist and Wild Wasabi.

Squeeze very small drops of Reinker onto a non porous sheet then spritz them with a little water. Place the cardstock down onto the ink and give it a firm press before lifting it off and allowing to dry.

I used Watercolour Paper for this, but Whisper White and Very Vanilla work well too as long as you dry them off quickly with a Heat Tool.

I love the Rev Up The Fun stamp set. It's perfect for cards for men and boys!

I stamped the motorbike straight onto the card first. I then stamped it again onto scrap card, coloured it with a Blender Pen and ink pads and cut it out. This was then added to the card using Dimensionals.

I used the little Banner Punch we had during Sale-a-Bration to create the little pennants. This Punch will soon be available again .... with our new annual catalogue in July!
