Visible Image Friday: Inky fingers and a lot of colors

Hello, my dear stamping friends! This is my new VISIBLE IMAGE Friday and today I am going to share a very cool and messy technique with fantastic colored results.


First of all you need a piece of glossy cardstock as this works better over the glossy one (try a  good quality photo paper if you don't have a " real" glossy cardstock, it works too). Then you need 3 primary colors of Staz-On inks: red , blue and yellow. Those 3 will give us all possible colors of rainbow after we mix them. Then you need  the black pigmented ink of any kind I am pretty much sure we all have. And last, but not least- our Visible Image best ever  The Sewing Room  set and a couple of Visible Image background stamps. I picked Check Background and Grunge Polka  Dot, but any square and dotted ones will work too.
Now for the technique.
1. Stamp a central image with black ink, make a mask (just stamp another same image, cut it and  cover your stamped image with it). Now stamp around some backgrounds and fill the " holes" with small stamps (I used buttons and spools).Cover it all with clear embossing powder and heat emboss it all.
2. Add red ink  with a sponge  over the central part and  and over 2 corners. Now  go for blue ink on 2 other corners and mix  a bit. Now add yellow ink over all  bare places and mix all inks with a clean sponge. Can you see all possible colors shown? It's purple and orange and green and so bright and shiny!
3. Now for the boring part- outline all possible shapes with white pen (Uniball is the best)
4. Add some black enamel paint over the dots and Glossy Accents over the big images. Glue the title (I used AC foam letters ) and make some white pen dots over them too. You " art card" is finished. This is a great technique for any art page too, also as far as I know most of  art journals don't  have glossy cardstock pages, so just glue one over the page.
