Tiddlyinks Fab Friday- April 2018


Hi there

Welcome to another Fab Friday at Tiddlyinks. This month, I am using the fun stamp Sweet Dreams Wryn. This stamp comes in two versions- Wryn in bed with pjs, reading a book with a night lamp and bookstand nearby. The second is Wryn reading in pjs and cute bunny slippers.

This stamp is really great as a birthday card for enthusiastic book readers and those who love to dream. Oh it also comes with a digital paper which makes for a great background.

Here is a 3 panel card I made using this cute stamp and painted using distressed inks.




Now I used a mix of distress inks for this project but here is a list of a few of them - vintage photo, chipped sapphire , mermaid lagoon, candied apple, pink lemonade, citrus green, mustard seed, scattered straw. Like paint you can mix the colours to make your own unique hue to colour your projects.

Hope this inspired you to try something different and to shop at tiddlyinks.com for interesting stamps for your projects. Please also stop by the other exciting designers and see their fantastic projects, using the stamps at Tiddlyinks.com

See you here for the next bloghop on 28th April 'Spring is Here'.

Distress Inks and a Wish upon a star .....


Its Challenge time again at Tiddlyinks and this month's challenge is super fun.

Think circles.....not going in circles but a circular themed card. I had several ideas for this challenge but decided on this one.


The image used today is one of the newest images in Tiddlyinks called 'Wish upon a Star'.

I decided to create a night background using distress inks with additional stars. At first when I did the starry background, I highlighted the star in a halo of light and then I got darker as I neared the ground but it didnt seemed right so I reversed it. Now the sky starts dark and gets lighter as it hits the ground and I added a few more stars with white pigment ink.

Distress inks I used for the background were gathered twigs,peacock feathers,tumbled glass, mermaid lagoon,picked raspberry, blueprint sketch,salty ocean.

White pigment ink was used to smoothen the image.
