Brutus Monroe Hop - Surface Inks

Hi crafty friends, thanks for stopping by today. The Brutus Monroe Inspiration Team is blog hopping today to showcase projects make with the surface inks. For this project, I chose to use two colors - Rock Candy and Cabana. 

I started with this koi fish pre-printed cardstock from the Lucky You card panels, and ran it through the laminator with Gold Shattered Glass decofoil. I started blending Rock Candy surface ink in the middle of the card, and the cool thing is that the foil resists the ink! I blended the Cabana ink around the edges, and added some white dots to the heads of the koi fish. I colored the bodies of the koi fish with a shimmer pen, but it's hard to catch that on camera.

 I squished the Cabana surface ink down onto my craft mat and I spritzed it with water, and splattered it all over the panel using a paintbrush. I also splattered a slightly larger panel of Alabaster cardstock. I popped the koi panel up on the splattered Alabaster panel with foam tape, and stamped the sentiment from the Conservatory of Quotes set with the Cabana ink as well. I added some flat gold sequins and some acrylic bubbles to finish off the whole card.
