Make It Monday: Coloring with White Ink

This week's Make It Monday technique is coloring with white ink. Heather Nichols from the PTI design team put together a great project for us this week which you can find HERE.

I've been enjoying the new Sweet As Can Be set from their July release, so I broke it out again today. I stamped a double dip ice cream cone on kraft cardstock and used Fresh Snow ink on a bullet point fantastix to color in the ice cream. I fussy cut the cone out and added it to my card. The card base is Harvest Gold cardstock matted with nice, summery patterned paper from
Echo Park's Summer Days 6x6 paper pad. I tied a triple bow ribbon with Hug Snug seam binding and scrunched it with wet fingers until I liked how it looked and added a double stack of buttons with button twine tied in a bow. The cone is adhered with foam tape to give extra dimension. What I really love is that the sentiments in this set allow you to highlight the word "sweet" in a different color if you like, so that's what I did. I tried to take a cue from Nichole Heady in planning my colors. Those of you who were in Summer Card Camp may remember she tries to follow the rule of 3's with color, and I tried to do the same. :) Thanks for the tip, Nichole!
