Pigment Ink Finger Painting - Friendly Pets Card

The pigment ink finger painting technique looks really cool and is a lot of fun to do (it is finger painting after all. :) I've been using it on all my projects lately, and I thought I'd share one of my favorites.

Inspiration: Scrapbook & Cards Today magazine (pg. 38 of the Spring 2014 issue). This card layout is so simple, but it's perfect for showcasing a stamped image like this adorable cat from the Friendly Pets stamp set.

Technique: Pigment ink finger painting on the cute little cat. My favorite guide on how to do this comes from Karen Pedersen's blog

Fun Fact: I used 5 different embellishments on this one card. Some are current (Neutral Metallic Baker's Twine and Bubbly Enamel Shapes) and some are retired (Mocha Opaques, Lagoon Zipper Lace and Rosette Ribbon), but all are awesome together. 

Give this technique a try - I guarantee you'll have a blast (and get inky fingers in the process - bonus!)
