Ink Repeating with Karen Reategui

Hi friends! Today I’m sharing this card over My Sweet Petunia Blog. I’m using Layering Flutterbies Stamp & Die Set from Julie Hickey Designs and for my sentiment I have Signature Thinking of You Stamp & Die Set also by Julie Hickey Designs.

For this card I have a mix of a ink repeating technique and blending inks with mini daubers. The sponge from the daubers also gave some texture to the blending which is awesome. The inks used on this card are from Catherine Pooler Designs.

Let’s begin! I started by placing a silhouette of one of the butterflies on an A2 panel. I begun stamping from bottom to top. Then, using a dauber I applied three different inks to the silhouette stamp. The inks from Catherine Pooler Designs that I used are Aquatini, Lime Rickey and Something Borrowed.

I stamped each butterfly silhouette and repeated the process of ink blending each time. Next, I stamped the outline of the corresponding butterfly using white ink.

Additionally, I die cut the Signature Thinking of You Die and placed the negative part in the MISTI. I put the die cut inside the negative part and stamped the Signature Thinking of You Stamp and heat embossed it with WOW! Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder.

I die cut the Signature Thinking of You Die two more times and glued them behind the white heat embossed die cut. Next, I stamped the sentiment “Special Friend” from Friendship Flower Stamp set from Julie Hickey Designs.

Finally, I trimmed just a bit one side of this panel and then I added a white folded notecard at the back using glue. Last, I placed the white heat embossed die cut on top of the background and I also adhered a strip of teal cardstock at one side and this card was finished. 

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a fabulous day! 

Your friend,
