Inky Door Hanger

Elaine here with an Inky project - the request was use Oak House Studio's Ink in a Bottle and that's what I've done to create a door hanger. 


A while back I entered a challenge where we had to make something using the colours of our front door....well mine is white pvc but it does have a stained glass kingfisher in it so lots of blues, oranges and greens.  I started with a plain wooden door hanger and sprayed this with Jubilee Blue and Citrus Lime Ink in a Bottle, left this to dry and then sprayed again with Jubilee Blue and Peacock Green just to intensify the colour.  The inks soak into the wood beautifully leaving the grain showing through (see below). Just to finish I blended a little Midnight Pigment Ink around the edges.


Next I sprayed some white card with Citrus Yellow and Citrus Orange Ink in a Bottle. I gold embossed the large Sunflowers from Oak House Studio, cut them out and sprayed on a little more Citrus Orange.  For a highlight, I used a pipette to suck up a little Jubilee Red Ink and added that to flower centres.  The Enjoy stamp was inked with Midnight Pigment Ink and clear embossed.

All the Inks in a Bottle, Pigment Ink Pads, Sunflowers and Enjoy Stamps can be found here.

Thanks for taking the time to look.  Lynnda is having a give away so don't forget to leave a comment on the post here for your chance to win some Inks in a Bottle!!
