Cardmaking – Back to Basics – Which Ink? (video)

Who would’ve thought that ‘Ink’ was so complex….   well, it’s not really, but it does pay to think about which ink you need to use and when.  Today I created a video sharing just that for my Cardmaking – Back to Basics series!

Video : Cardmaking Back to Basics – Card Design

Today I have a video touching the tip of the iceberg of ‘Card Design’ and in particular using the ‘Rule of Thirds’.  You know when you sometimes look at a card and the ‘balance’ or ‘layout’ just doesn’t feel quite right, that’s when I go back to this rule and it can really help me, so I thought I would share.

Pastels aren’t my normal ‘go to’ colours but I think they look really pretty here.  You can see me colour this little fella in this video HERE.

ETA:  Just wanted to say that this fabulous vellum idea is not mine, I found it in our wonderful blogland somewhere…   I think it was on Youtube, but alas cannot find it again to link the wonderful person who shared it with me.  If I find it I promise to link it here.  But to whomever you are, a big thanks!

I’ll be back real soon,
