Paper Lantern technique


Bij het blog van de Wednesday Stamper is het thema: "Party" en nu ik toch in de orientaalse sferen ben dacht ik aan lampionnen, vandaar deze kaart en deze (al oude, maar nog steeds leuke) techniek.

Over at the Wednesday Stamper blog the theme is "Party" and with my eastern cards I thought about  paper lanterns and this (already old, but definitely fun) technique.
Wat heb je voor deze techniek nodig?
Natuurlijk je stempels (hier de kraanvogels van Michael Strong), papier in kleur naar keuze, zwarte inkt en bruine distress inkt en je krimper (ribbelaar). Eventueel materiaal om je stempel in te kleuren.

What do you need for this technique?
Of course your stamps (here Michael Strongs crane stamps), color paper of your choice, black ink and brown distress ink and your crimper. If you want to color your stamp you need the right materials for coloring.
1. Stempel met zwart de afbeelding op je papier.

1. Stamp with black ink the image on your paper.
2. Wil je de afbeelding inkleuren? Doe dat dan eerst en daarna voer je het papier door je krimper (ribbelaar).

2. Do you want to color your image? Than do so now. Afterwards you crimp your paper through the crimper.

3. Neem nu de bruine distress inkt en ga direkt met het inktkussen zachtjes over het papier. Het hoeft niet overal even donker te zijn. Nu kun je hiermee een kaart naar wens maken.

3. Take your distress ink and softly touch the paper with the inkpad. It doesn't have to be as dark on every spot. Now you can finish the card to your own desire.
Onderstaande kaart is gemaakt met de kraanvogels van Michael Strong en de bloemen en tekst zijn van Hero Arts.

The card below is made with the cranes by Michael Strong and the flowers and sentiment are by Hero Arts.
