PTI MIM #152

well I have been away for so long due to a period of illness which struck me down on Christmas Eve, what great timing I have!
However, I'm starting to feel more like joining the human race again and when I viewed the PTI MIM technique, (View here), I thought I might just have a try at it. It is a technique I haven't seen used before...and I quite like the results.

My samples gave a varying degree of background texture and interest and although I don't have many pigment inks, I found enough in my long neglected stash to have some fun this morning.

The Platinum Planet ink used with the large fern stamp from the Meadow greens stamp set leaves a beautiful soft shimmery texture on the card which shows through the dye inks, particularly on the solid leaf stamp, giving a subtle interesting effect.

For this card I used:
Soft Stone

Meadow Greens
Signature Greetings 2
Natural Beauties

Brilliance Platinum Planet Pigment Ink
PTI Smokey Shadow
PTI Ocean Tides
PTI Classic Kraft
PTI Dark Chocolate

3 small clear jewels
An interesting technique and one I will definitely use again. I will do a couple more posts so I can add the links to the PTI site.

Hopefully, I'll see you again soon! Thanks for looking.
