Welcome to Day 2 of the Launch Party for my new Mix’d Media Inx CHOX!
There are 8 colors in this product release: Driftwood (tan), Sparrow (brown), Butternut (gold), Petals (pink), Sage (green),Bluejay (blue), Pomegranate (burgundy), & Midnight (black). And just like the Mix'd Media Inx, the containers have a flexible base (for a comfygrip) and a clear lid with a lip that lets you stack the pads.
You can also get the re-inkers in all 8 colors.
These new CHOX are fast drying, have LOADS of vibrant color, are great for stamping, edge distressing, coloring, and can be used in layers for blending colors (watch the technique video for day 1). To give you an idea of how much pigment is in these inks, you can actually mix the re-inkers with a matte acrylic medium to use instead of or with acrylic paint!
Come back each day from Nov 27th - Nov 29th for projects, ideas, technique videos and PRIZES!
Today, Clearsnap has more projects from their DT on their blog
I've got the pics of the prizes that we are giving away on this blog each day of the party below:
Each day of our party we will have TWO winners! Each prize will be a Mix'd Media Inx Chox pad and the matching re-inker. To be entered into our random drawings, leave a comment and add your name to the inlinkz on the post for each day of our party! The winners will be announced during the first week of December.
And here is my project:
This is a layout that I made for the scrapbook circle with my DT. This layout is for Michelle, she and one of my other DT members, Mistra, were at a scrappy event together and had time to shoot this adorable photo.
I stamped the watercolor paper background (from my Mix'd Media Stax) with various stamps using the new CHOX. I then spritzed over the background with Smooch Spritz. If I had used my original Mix'd Media Inx, the images would have run (which I actually love doing but I was going for a different look this time). I love how the colors stayed vibrant even after spritzing!
I used Emboss Gloss around the letters then sprinkled and heat clear emboss. I was then able to stamp each letter with a different color of CHOX (in order LtoR: Bluejay, Petals, Sage, Butternut, Pomegranate, Bluejay). I distressed the edges of the background and the individual embellishments with the Distrezz-it-All and used Driftwood to ink around the edges.
I die cut pennants flowers and photo booth strip using Spellbinder dies, distressed the edges and inked with various colors of CHOX. I also inked the edges of the paper doily with various colors of CHOX as well.
The title is something that I printed on my computer... I've got a link to the file so that you can try the same technique with the multi-colored letters (it is 4x6). View file
