Three White Pigment Ink Techniques that Pack A Punch

 Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you three techniques using White Pigment Ink that will put a punch in your papercrafting.  If you are like me your white pigment ink or White Craft Ink if you use Stampin' Up! products is your most under used supply.  I am here to help change that this week.  Here's a look at my card where I used these three techniques.

I CASEd the design for this card from the January - June Mini Catalog.  I thought the layout for this card was super fun and cute.  I used the Fluttering & Floating Bundle and the Many Messages Bundle for the sentiment and butterflies.  But,  these are not really the stars of the card.  The actual star of the card is the White Craft Ink.

Faux Distress Oxide Technique: 

This was a super fun technique that a friend told me about so I had to look it up.  Once I did I was like okay let's give it a try.  And, I am so glad I did I had so much fun I made a couple cards using this technique.  And as you will see in the video it's not that hard.

I found the covering of the Basic White Cardstock with the White Craft Ink super satisfying. Maybe it was because I was using a product that I don't use often, but no matter what it was it was very satisfying to use it.  I was super impressed with how the blending felt like blending with Distress Oxides.  I was able to get the smooth transition between the colors.  I also think it depends on the applicator as well.  All in all I am very pleased with this technique, and will be adding it to my technique bible.  

Bokeh Technique:

 Basically this is a technique of adding different colored dots with a stencil, sponge dauber or other applicator to your card.   Then adding a layer of white dots as well.  This gives the look of an atmospheric out of focus perspective where the dots are actually dust and light partials in the camera lens.  It's an easy technique but getting the right amount sometimes can be tricky.  I thought I got a nice effect when I paired it with the Distress Oxide Technique.  

Heat Embossing:

Yes, good old heat embossing!  You can use your White Craft Ink or any white pigment ink to do heat embossing, because it's stays wet and sticky longer than dye based inks.  I find that this is a perfect way to do white heat embossing because the white ink actually comes through the white embossing powder a little.  Especially when you may not cover the image very well.  I heat embossed the butterflies from the Floating and Fluttering Stamp Set on colored cardstock this way.
