Memento Luxe Ink with Shari

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s Shari here with a little Memento Luxe Ink experiment. I wanted to see how these inks held up to an old favorite technique of mine (second generation with water)… and I’m happy to report, they performed with excellence!!!

I’ve combined the colors Morocco, Pistachio and Espresso Truffle for a warm appearance and created a backdrop window behind my die cut Thanks.

This is a simple technique which allows you to layer your images and create lighter tones of the original color.

And for your viewing pleasure…I’ve shot a video showing the process of how I created all the layers.

Thanks for stopping by, Have a great day!

  1. You’re right, it was for our viewing pleasure. Love the card and the colors are so vibrant, plus I love to see how you create these cards!

  2. WOW! This video is packed full of great techniques and tips. I’ve never seen this technique of spritzing for the 2nd generation stamping and I love it. Also love the way you put the acetate onto the sections of the card. Great video, thanks!!!

  3. Dear Shari, thank you for sharing these GREAT techniques and your beautiful and inspiring card! The inks look so vibrant and the colors are amazing!!! I have to admit that I always love your projects and each time I look forward for the next one! Thank you!

  4. wow Shari! your cards always look beautiful – don’t know where you come up with your ideas but they are absolutely great! I have just finished the course “insider” and your many layered acetate card is my absolute favourite! Thank you so much for sharing your talent :)

  5. WOW in LOVE with this card..stunning love the design such a fab idea..will sure try it too…which inks do you think can also be used in this way?
    loved the video..you always make such fab videos!

  6. I really thought I was going to be able to avoid these inks…my willpower was strong. But the more beautiful cards I see demo’d with them…there’s just no way I’m going to be able to resist. And then I’m going to need ink pad storage…oh dear…I’m going to be in soooo much trouble!!

  7. Shari, I always look forward to your artistic flair. So happy I found the video! Didn’t even realize you had acetate on the card until I watched video. Thanks for the inspiration!
