Clean & Simple Festive Cards

Less is more during the festive rush, so design team member Marcia Caradinta has created a simple tutorial to share how to use our Sparkle glitter inks to create clean and simple holiday cards that are perfect for batch making.

About Sparkle Glitter Inks

The Sparkle Glitter Inks from Spectrum Noir are perfect for the crafter or colourist who wants to experiment and get messy. Their shimmering vivid colours will dilute and blend almost endlessly, for a range of easy-to-achieve artistic effects that are simply stunning! These Glitter Inks take inspiration from the much-loved Sparkle Glitter Brush-Pens, so each colour of ink has a matching pen. However, you receive 30ml in each jar, which is over four times the amount of the 7ml pens, so you'll have plenty of ink for all of your projects.

The fluid colours of the Sparkle Glitter Inks are infused with a perfect sheen of dazzling glitter. Their high pigmentation can be watered down to offer an exciting range of sparkling gradations and blended colour effects, so creating seamless transitions between colours is simple.

Step 1

Emboss the earth ornament image on to watercolour card.

Step 2

Select two shades of ink (for this tutorial Starry Sky and Moonstone) to use for the ocean area.

Step 3

Wet the ocean area lightly with water, then paint both blue tones into the image. Allow the colours to blend mostly on their own as this gives a more natural look.  When dry, lightly wipe off the ink from the embossed portion of the image.

Step 4

Die cut the ornaments and assemble them onto clean and simple cards. Add a stamped sentiment and also a stamped branch. As you can see these are perfect for batch making cards and add the perfect amount of sparkle.
