Kurecolor Inks with Jamie Cripps

New Design Team member Jamie Cripps has created this beautiful card, using our Zig Kurecolor Inks to make the flower.

What Jamie has used:

Inks: 264 Geranium Red and 705 Brown Zig Kurecolor Alcohol Inks (Kuretake)
Adhesive: 2-Way Chisel Tip (Zig) and Foam Squares (American Crafts)
Patterned Paper: Homestead 6x6 (SEI)
Cardstock: White (The Paper Studio)
Punch: Ticket (Tonic) and Border (EK Success)
Stickers: Metal Sentiment (Momenta)
Gem: Smooth Clear (Hero Arts)
Ribbon: Grey Plaid (May Arts)

Tutorial Steps:

1.  Cut Samantha Walker's Marigold Silhouette Cut file on white cardstock the prepare your surface to work with the Zig Kurecolor Alcohol Inks.  We will start with the 264 Geranium Red.

2.  Place several drops of the alcohol ink on one of the flower pieces.

3.  Using wax paper, blot the ink and move it around the flower.

4.  Your flower piece should look like this.

5.  Go around the edges with the 217 Cadmium Red Kurecolor Marker.  This will provide a bit of shading and hide any areas missed from the inking.

6.  On your wax paper, place a couple drops of the 705 Brown Alcohol Ink then move it around within the wax paper.

7.  Blot the color on to the flower piece until you have the look you desire.

8.  Repeat these steps for all the flower pieces.

9.  Starting with the largest flower piece, place a foam adhesive square in the center.

10-14.  Adhere the next size flower piece then place another foam square.

15.  Your finished flower should look similar to this.
