Day 5 of my Pattern A Day 100 day challenge

I’ve made a pattern with ink today for the fifth day of my 100 day challenge today over at the 100daysproject. There are lots of interesting projects to see over there (use the search icon to find them) You can find out more about my individual challenge on my day 1 post here.

I started with Sheena Douglass Stamping Cardand brushed Spun Sugar Distress ink around the edges.

I used my pink ZIG Art and Graphic Twin Watercolour pen on my mat with some water spritzed on it and then brushed it across the card to give a stripy watercolour effect.

I had cut a chevron stencil from sticky vinyl and stuck the waste this card to make the zig zag pattern. I then sponged Picked Raspberry distress ink on the top left and bottom right and brushed Dusty Concord distress ink
and Peacock Feathers distress inkacross.

I then used the same distress inks with a grungy flower stamp (free with a magazine and I don’t know the manufacturer) to create an additional layer of pattern.


I also added my usual copyright information etc. using CraftArtist 2 Professional.
