Black Tie Friday #22

 NO INK

that is the challenge at Black Tie Friday......


No ink????

How am I going to solve that?

I think it was two years ago that I bought a bunch of bottles of acrylic dabbers at the Rangers factory sale. They all turned to be dried out, but I could not part with them - one day I thought perhaps I will revive them. ... and that was today...

Asked the internet - how to thin acrylic paint - water it says  - not the best, but works. What the heck - that I have in abundance. I picked 3 colors - purple, green and blue, dropped some water into the bottles and stirred, and stirred, and stirred, and stirred......

Finally the paint came back to life. I smeared three fat drops of paint onto a somewhat glossy paper and then rubbed a second sheet of paper onto the first. I die cut the squares and assembled the card.

Hope you like it.


3 little drops of perfect pearls. The sentiment is a Memory box die, which I blackened with a Sharpie - ehm is that ink?? Hope that does not disqualify me...

Love this card and idea. I too have a bunch of dried out dauber s, maybe I will try this technique and see what happens.

Eine Karte ohne Stempelfarbe, ja, ich glaube an dieser Aufgabe wäre ich verzweifelt!

Aber Deine Lösung mit den Acrylfarben ist ja echt klasse (beim 1. Blick hätte ich schwören können, es wäre geschmolzenes Wachs!)

Ein super Effekt!

Ojeh, ja meine Acrylfarben dürfte ich auch langsam mal wieder "retten"... Genauso wie die Ölfarben... Bis ich mal wieder Zeit habe "richtig" zu malen, werde ich mich wohl komplett neu eindecken müssen *seuftz*

Aber wie dein Beispiel schon zeigt, ab und an ist es nie verkehrt, auch etwas anderes als die üblichen Kartenbastelsachen im Haus zu haben ;-)

Liebe Grüße :-)
