Alcohol Inks

These were not the projects I was aiming at. First of all I wanted to create a nice alcohol background on glossy paper, but the applicator was too saturated and mixed the colours to give this dark look. Then I stamped on it in black but didn't like the look of it, so instead I attached a vintage image in the middle of the stamp seeing that it automatically gave me a frame. I thought to myself if I see a challenge this week with the theme 'frames', I will enter these, and sure enough, here on the Arty girlz blog I found a challenge!



Then I stamped over the top with white ink and used the beautiful flourish stamps which Suzanne sent me... slowing becoming my favorites... and liked the distressed look it gave.


This second card was created a little bit in the same way but with some extras.

  3. The darker somber colors are not what we are used to from you! But they are very aged and vintage looking, very beautuful.

  6. I think the black/dark background makes the image pop and it is light enough to show the background stamping. Stunning is the word I was going to use as well. :)

  7. 2 happy accidents - I admire how you persisted and adapted. Although the colours are darker, they are still muted and look great with with the images.
