Video: Ink Trapping with the March 2022 My Monthly Hero Kit
Hello friends! It’s Channin here and today I’m demonstrating a very cool ink trapping technique with the new March My Monthly Hero Kit! Watch the video below to see how I create bold and vibrant splatters over a black background without using several different embossing powders.
(If you are having trouble viewing this video, please watch HERE on YouTube.)
To create this card I first started with an A2 panel of Dove White cardstock, one of the splatter stamps from the March My Monthly Hero Kit and a stamp positioning tool like a MISTI. I then inked up half the splatter with Fruit Punch Reactive Ink, stamped, then inked up the other half with Creamsicle Reactive Ink and stamped. This creates a two-toned ombre splatter.
Next, I cleaned the stamp and then inked it up in Clear Embossing & Watermark ink and stamped it directly over the two-toned splatter. I then poured clear embossing powder over the splatter and heat set it with my heat tool. Next, I repeated this process to stamp three more splatters, using two Reactive Iks for each splatter (Lemon Drop and Key Lime Fizz, Pool Party and Blue Hawaii, Grape Slush and Taffy).
When I had finished stamping and clear heat embossing all the splatters I then trimmed the panel down to 3 1/2” x 4 3/4”. Next, I ink blended over the panel with INTENS-ified Black Ink. Once I had finished ink blending the panel I wiped the heat-embossed splatters clean with a dry cloth. Next, I adhered an A2 panel of Pitch Black cardstock to the front of a A2 top-folding white card base. Then I adhered the splatter panel to the card front with foam adhesive.
I hope you enjoyed today’s card and video! Thank you so much for stopping by!
