Swipe It!

Hi All,

I saw this technique by Kim Jolley and knew it would be perfect for a masculine card. She has coined it 'Inkswiping'.

Kim has a great video here if you'd like to pop over to watch it.  All you need is an old credit card, acrylic blocks and some Reinkers.  The process is simple. First, cut your credit card into strips of different widths.  Second, place a few drops of Reinker onto an acrylic block.  Lastly, swipe a strip of the credit card onto the inked block and swipe onto your paper.  Continue until you have the colored effect that you're looking for.

Item# 122932 Island Indigo Reinker $3.75

Item# 100531 Old Olive Reinker $3.75

Item# 131158 Crushed Curry Reinker $3.75
This is such a simple technique and can be used as a background on any type of card.  I used Old Olive, Island Indigo and Crushed Curry for a more masculine effect, but the options are endless. Give it a go!

Everyone at my workshop loved making this card.  If you'd like to add any of these products to your collection, just click on the 'Order Online' icon in the top right-hand corner of this page.  Thanks for stopping by!
