using MFT Hybrid Inks to create a canvas; MFT Ingenious Inking Challenge

 

Its another fun challenge with MFT Stamps! Have I mentioned how much fun I have with all these?!!? Today's inking challenge is about using the fabulous Hybrid Inks and how well they work when used with mixed media techniques. 

I used the Hybrid Inks quite a few different ways on this canvas. I started by painting 
Hybrid Blu Raspberry ink refill on a mini (4x4") canvas. I used a paintbrush and a small amount of refill because it is so intense in concentration. Then I applied heat to set the blue ink background with my heat tool. 

The sentiment was stamped in Hybrid Nightshift Blue ink. To allow the sentiment to be stamped clearly on a canvas that has an open back, one that is not flat to a surface, I placed an acrylic block behind where I wanted to stamp the sentiment. It is from the set, Love you More. Once the sentiment was heat set, I tore a Post-It Note to fit over the top and created a mask to protect the sentiment from my next step.

I mixed Embossing Paste with Hybrid Lemon Drop refill ink to create a bright, sunny, yellow paste. Holding the stencil in place, I applied the colored paste through Stencil Sun Ray. Once finished applying paste, I carefully lifted the stencil, and the Post-It Note. Then I let the paste dry. Ok, I will be honest, I used my heat tool to speed up the process. A coat of MIX-ables Sheer Sparkle Glitter Glaze was applied to the yellow paste to bring more shine to the sun. A couple of sequins were added for more dimension.

This was a fun a project! Nothing like I normally make. But having all these great ink and tools available, made it a breeze! I recommend you give it a try! Check out all the supplies below and pick up a few today and push your creativity! You won't believe how enjoyable it is!
