Thinking Inking with Tando

The theme over on the Tando Creative Blog this week is


no, we're not talking tattooing!! lol, but, the various ways to ink the Tando Chippie...

This is my piece:-

The ATC base was coloured using three different distress inks - the white board allows the ink to move and mix really easily - then I used the New Neil Walker Tangled Yarn Mask inking using another distress ink.  I then hi-lighted the lines using a charcoal pencil then buffed up the act....I really liked the finished effect and was seriously thinking about leaving it as was, but, thought better of it!! lol.  I doodled around the edges and added a couple of mini flowers - which had been inked with distress ink, outlined the edges and added a bit of bling, a couple of small hearts from the hearts mini bag which was inked with distress ink and edges inked and a mini leaf which was coloured using the distress ink and then a layer of crackle glaze added.
