It’s been a while since I have blogged – yes, sometimes you just have to step away and breathe. And that’s what I did for a while, but I am happy to say that I am back and hoping to give the blog a little make-over and dust off the spiderwebs and dust – so hang in there.
Hi everyone, Jowilna here on the blog today sharing a Documented layout with a hint of colour. I simply love this range but wanted to add a touch of colour.
I started off creating my mixed media inked background using re-inkers.
The effect left a hint of cream, yellow, a beautiful grey and even some blue and green colours visible once the ink had dried.
A variety of Collectables elements added the yellow tones and for the blue/green I added some scrunched up thread under my photo.
This multicoloured thread gave me the interest and hint of colour I craved.
A couple of coloured splats offers the accent colours support and makes for a nice detail.
Mini Typography stenciled detail works well on the background. I could have added the stenciled details in a colour come to think of it.
It just shows you how versatile this range is – perfect for everyday moments, school days, vintage, heritage and boys.
Thanks for stopping by today. We hope you have enjoyed seeing the versatility of this range as showcased by the Design Team the last couple of weeks.
Some more amazing designs heading your way with this month’s ranges…so come back soon.
Live Creatively – Jowilna!

Tsukineko Delicata is the latest generation of metallic inkpad. Remarkably true and bright, it outshines other inkpads and provides stamping results that resemble the true effects of gold and silver leafing without the mess. Yes you heard me, without the mess of using actual foil you can achieve the look of those gorgeous metals in a few easy steps.
These inkpads feature a substantially raised inkpad surface to accommodate even the largest stamps without interference from the inkpad case. A Water-based, acid-free and archival ink that is perfect for cardmakers and scrapbookers and any one just feeling the need to add some bling to their creative life.
This truly is a remarkable ink pad that can stand on its own but combined with other inks will shine even brighter.
In all my years of stamping and using inks I have never come across another ink that truly shimmers and shines like Delicata.
And of course it would be great for the holidays but also for year-round bling.
- Pigment ink
- Acid Free
- Best left to dry naturally to bring out the shimmer
Here’s how I used Delicata to create this gorgeous shining layout.
I used the copper re-inker to create a die-cut background. Squeeze a small amount of re-inker onto an old credit card or applicator tool like the lift-off tool and then drag the ink across plain cardstock for an even layer of metallic. Leave the ink to dry naturally. Once dry, use a Kaisercraft die cut and cut out the image out of the inked cardstock piece.
Use your ink pad and lightly in a circular movement add ink to cardstock using the direct to paper technique to add Black Shimmer to the cardstock. Leave to dry naturally – (heat setting seems to take away some of the beautiful and incredible shine).
Use Golden Glitz Delicata and a stencil and ink a pattern onto the background cardstock. Use a single colour or layer different colours over each other using a clean sponge dauber for each colour to avoid contamination. Leave to dry.
Use a second stencil and a clean dauber with the White shimmer Delicata ink pad and stencil another pattern onto the background. Use Silver Delicata and the same stencil with a clean dauber and ink silver over the background for a two tone effect. The white leaves a gorgeous shimmer while the silver gives off a soft glow.
Add shimmery ink splats to your background. Press the ink pad onto your craft sheet and mist with water. Use a small paint brush to pick up some of the ink, mix the water into it to make it liquidy and then splat ink onto your background. The ink leaves a beautiful shimmer that is really hard to capture on photos – but truly spectacular in real life.
The shimmer and lustre is truly amazing on white, but on black it is even more spectacular – opening up a whole new world for cardmakers and wedding invitations – adding the perfect amount of lustre to any occasion.
