Hi everyone, it's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and Shirley has chosen texture as the topping.
You can always play along with the anything goes birthday option too.
The design team and our party guest have some great inspiration for you, so I hope you can play along.
A liitle while ago I went to use some of my Inka Gold colours and they had gone rock hard!
I found a you tube that advised on rehydrating them and then thought after all that effort I need to use them regularly to keep them from drying out again.
(Edited to add: Here's the link to the youtube I watched.
It involves breaking up the block of inka gold, adding cooled boiled water and when it is a creamy consistency then add a few drops of glycerin. Another tip I found was to put a folded baby wipe inside the jar, it helps retain the moisture. I cut the baby wipes in half so they weren't to bulky.
I think the main thing will be using them regularly and adding more cooled boiled water and glycerin when they start to thicken up too much.)
So, I'm reluctant to buy more colours, and decided to combine steel blue and magenta to try and create purple.It sort of worked lol!
I smeared the paste onto a craft mat and spritzed with a lot of water, then smooshed some cardstock into it. I spritzed the cardstock with water too to blend the colours even more.
I embossed the dried card with a Sizzix 3D folder, it looks better in real life.
Here's a closer look.
The diecut was inked with versamark and embossed with Lindy's midnight violet ep.
Look forward to seeing your cards in the gallery!
