So I finally shared this little window sheet coloring technique with the ladies at one of my card classes this month. You may recall that I shared a video tutorial a little while back that demonstrated how to achieve this awesome background color by using your re-inkers and a bit of water.
Check out this tutorial
I decided to share this technique again with all of you to demonstrate how unique each card can be when you use the coloring technique. So one of the ladies in my class followed this technique but decided not to add as much ink to the window sheets as I demonstrated in the video. This meant that she had a lot more “white” spots showing through (which is the white cardstock that we laid onto the ink in the window sheet folder). At first she was not too thrilled with how the coloring turned out…until she stamped the tree images on a window sheet and laid it over the colored background….and…voila…she had an absolutely stunning card (pictured here)!! The white splotches on the card (the area that did not receive enough ink) actually look like a little path through the trees. She was so excited and I was extremely impressed! I don’t think we could duplicate this again if we tried! I just wanted to share this with you as a reminder that each card you design with this coloring technique will be different and unique! Give a try and let me know how your project turns out!
Here are a few of the other creations from that class:
