Tubby Craft inks on various bases with Priyadarshini

Hello everyone

Welcome back....

My post for today is all about Tubby Craft inks. Tubby craft inks are water based dye inks and can be used for stamping, stenciling, water colouring and inking backgrounds. I always wanted to try using inks on other textured bases as well and fortunately today my post is all all about inking on different textures. Since they are water based, inking turned out to be very easy and fun to make.

I am using 3 bases here, the first one is paper clay mould, the second one is burlap/jute and the last one is felt. Adding water to the inks make them move and blend freely. 

Materials used:
1. Stamps
    a. Adorable runner
    b. Darling four  
2. Inks
    a. Jet black 
    b. Turquoise
    c. Lemon yellow
    d. Magenta
    e. Imperial red
    f. Liliac purple
    g. Lavender violet
    h. Emerald green
    i. Mustard yellow
    j. Tangy Orange
3. White card stock
4. Gem stones
5. Acrylic block
6. Brush
7. Colour pencils

Lets start......

Inking on paper clay mould

Inks used colouring: Turquoise, Emerald green, Lemon yellow

1. I made a peacock using mould and paper clay. I let the clay dry completely for a day before I started adding colours.  
2. Once the mould is dry, I started adding colours by watercolouring.
3. I dabbed some ink onto my work surface and sparyed some water. Using a brush, I started adding colours and these inks work perfectly for blending colours. 
4. Once the colours are dry (only air dry not to use heat tool), I added it to a card base. 
5. To finish the card,I added the sentiment and some gem stone. 

Inking on burlap/jute

Inks used colouring: Lemon yellow, Tangy orange, Imperial Red

1. I took a white jute (heavy base jute) and trimmed it down.
2. I started dabbing the inks directly onto the jute base.
3. Before the inks dried out, I immediately sprayed water and used my brush to blend the colours out. 
4. The jute stated to curl up when drying because of the water, hence I placed a heavy object on top of it. 
5. I used strong adhesive to add the jute/burlap to my card base. 
6. I stamped two images and coloured them with pencils.
7. I kept the rest of the card simple and added the image to burlap base and finished by adding sentiment and gem stones. 

Inking on felt

Inks used colouring: Liliac violet, Lavender violet, magenta

1. Here too, I used white felt and trimmed it down...
2. I did not dab the ink directly to the felt but used my work surface to do watercolouring.
3. Blending the colours on felt was very easy than I expected. But it does take a while to dry completely. 
4. Felt must be adhered to the card base only when its completely dry to stick well. 
5. I used a pattern paper for the base and then added a black card stock and felt on top of it. 
6. I added a cake image and sentiment along with gem stones to finish the card. 

I hope you all liked my post and do give it try and have fun. If you did remember to follow my blog and other social media accounts too.

Two amazing anniversary cards by Anushree

Hi Everyone !! Hope you all are doing good and crafting too. I have two cards for today. I have highlighted  different techniques for each card. Onto my first card, I have tried showcasing repeated stamping in a border style . I have used Plumeria Florals stamp set and Jet Black dye ink from Tubby craft to stamp the border first. Next I chose Imperial Red and Lead gray dye inks from Tubby Craft to color my florals. Sentiment is a die cut on Gold card stock and the card is embellished in gold peals. For border,I have adhered Gold border die cut to enhance the card on a black cardstock. Now onto my second card, I am using Checkered Stencil for the background .I have used rainbow colors from Tubby Craft Dye ink collection to put them on paper using blending brushes. I masked the center with a circle die cut before applying inks to the card base. Once stenciled background is ready,I removed the mask and stamped sentiment from Luc

Tubby Craft - Penguin Love - Birthday Cards by Deepti

Hello Everyone, I'm stopping by to share two birthday cards using cute Tubby Craft stamp called "Penguin Love" and "Birthday Wishes". I have used Masking technique to make both the cards. Card 1 To make this card, I die cut out the white card stock and stamped the penguins by masking them using Black tubby craft ink. Once satisfied, I stamped the balloons too and colored all these images using alcohol markers. After that I stamped the sentiment on white strip and adhered the same using foam tape along with washi tape. Glued it on Pista green card stock. Finally added some clear sequins to complete it.

After that I stamped the balloons and the sentiment. Added stamped and fussy cut gift too.  Finally adhered it on matching note card and added some matching s
