my swap

Well I was going to show my swap, but it seems I didn't take a pic,
so I'll show you that when I get around to showing you how to do the chevron folds.

I made them work on our play day!
I showed them how to do the folds on their 'swap', then later suggested we get a bit inky!

Using an acrylic block, I placed ink from two pads,
placed it on the card to make this background.
Sarn kindly let us play with her Wetlands stamp set
(which we all now 'need'!)

Then we tried the same method, but spritzing the block with water,
before placing it on the card.
Can you see the difference a bit of water makes?
I love experimenting and getting inky!
I also used the stamp-a-ma-jig to get a line of wading birds.....
Come back tomorrow and I'll show you a finished card using this technique.


  1. It was great fun and a good technique to play with. I've made one of my efforts into a card now, but will definitely be making more!

    Happy Sunday!
