Ink-Smushing with The Spellbinders BetterPress- CIC #585

Hello friends! Today is the start of a new challenge over on the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog! Challenge #585 is a colour challenge, and the colours that you must use are grey, yellow, and white. This challenge is also the first challenge of the year!

To create this card, I first started by ink-smushing my card background using Mustard Seed and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxides. In between layers, I used my heat gun to dry the ink quickly.

Once happy with my card background, I positioned my background and Press Plate on the Spellbinders BetterPress – the Press Plate I used to create this card is the one that comes with the BetterPress Letterpress System. I then inked the Press Plates using the BetterPress Black Ink and ran the BetterPress through my manual die-cutting machine. I did the same thing for the sentiment.

To finish the card, I created two matching mats for my card using Mustard Seed and Hickory Smoke Distress Oxides and adhered them (along with my sentiment), using Bearly Art Glue.

Be sure to head on over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge Blog to submit a card and participate in the current challenge!

Thanks for reading. Catch ya next time!
