I shared this fun technique with my Stamper’s Club last month and have been saving it until I could do a Facebook Live. Well I was finally able to do that last weekend and now I’m ready to share it with you here. I call it the Ink Scrape Technique. I found this idea using paint but haven’t seen anywhere that it was done with ink. And I figure if it could be done with paint I could do it with ink. I’ve used Glossy card stock for this technique. In my Facebook live I shared two different techniques using the Glossy card stock. It’s one of those overlooked items in the catalog but it can be used for some fun things!
Be sure you watch my Facebook Live video from Sunday, April 7th and you can see technique in action and how I finished this card.

I used one of my Stamparatus Plates for a work surface with the ink. Put drops of ink on the plate – I used the five colors in the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots and put them in rainbow order – Lovely Lipstick, Calypso Coral, Pineapple Punch, Call Me Clover, and Night of Navy. I used a bit of snail to hold my glossy card stock on the plate. Then I used an old plastic card – like a hotel key or gift card – scrape through the drops of ink and across the card stock. You can make wavy designs, start and stop to add the lines, etc. Let it dry and then finish the card.
