Heron Reflection on Black Card

Hello there,

How are you all today? Good I hope!

When Inkylicious were Hochanda last month, Emma did a fantastic demo of stamping onto black card, using white ink as a base for the colour.  I loved the card so much that I've had a go at recreating it.  My colours aren't as vibrant as Emma's were but I think that's because my white ink pad ins't as wet as it should be. Here's my offering:


The stamps and stencils that I've used on this card can be found  can be found here.

I'd like to add this card into the following challenges:

Penny Black and More - Feature a Creature
The Artistic Stamper - Stencils and Masks
Rubber Dance - March Challenge (Colour)
Time Out Challenge - Bold

I am just inking up the Heron right this minute! Although now I have seen this amazing card using him, I might just pop him back in his sleeve - as there's no way I could ever create something as beautiful as this Sandra. Love it.

Hi Sandra, I love your card with the hauntingly ethereal design. The white inking is amazing, I remember seeing Emma doing this on the show.
Thanks for your kind words regarding Lesley snapping me up, I applied for the latest GDT call, but wasn't successful, I guess I wasn't surprised as the DT are amazing, but thanks for thinking my card was good enough, ironically it was one made for the application, enjoy your evening, Kate x x
