Inspiring Inkin' Challenge #22 - A Technique Challenge

This fortnight's challenge on Inspiring Inkin' Challenges is to make a magic proscenium card with a side twist of using white ink to make a patterned background. A what I hear you say. Basically it's a gatefold card with a aperture punched out of it and an image hidden behind some panels that open when you open the card.

The lovely Elaine very kindly posted the instructions to make this card on her blog here and they are so easy to follow that this complicated-looking card was really easy to actually make.

This is my card closed. I love how the Whisper White craft ink stands out on the Close To Cocoa cardstock. Not sure if you can tell in the photo, but I coloured the flowers' centre dots with Pale Plum markers and the outer dots with Sage Shadow.

And this is the card opened. I went for a simple design inside as this was my first attempt at this card so didn't want to over-complicate things LOL Now I've had a go and found it very easy to do I'll try a more complicated one next time.


Stamps: Playful Petals, A Flower for All Seasons, Curvy Verses.

Papers: Close To Cocoa, Sage Shadow, Pale Plum, Whisper White

Inks: Whisper White craft ink, Basic Black, SU Markers in Close to Cocoa, Sage Shadow, Pale Plum, Bashful Blue, So Saffron
