Glitter Girl Adventure 137: An Inky Experiment

Glitter Girl Adventure 137: An Inky Experiment // Distress Ink scrapbook page by Shimelle Laine

I can’t entirely explain why I have collected a full box of Distress Inks in a range of colours when I don’t do much in the way of inking techniques. I love the looks and could watch card making videos of Distress techniques all day in some land of fairy tales and yet I only seem to make cards when I’m in panic mode and can’t devote time to trying something new and experimental. But I do spend time on my scrapbook pages! There is no good reason not to just put those inks to use, even with all the little tricks that make them different to a standard dye ink pad. It’s time for Glitter Girl to get on the case.

The combination of pencil and the heart stencil was inspired by Kirsty Smith’s page here. Kirsty often works with many white elements on a page, but I almost always go for fully saturated colours, so swapping from traditional pencil to coloured pencil was perfect for adapting the idea!
