I also bought the Fiskar's anywhere punch, but that's another sItory. So, anyway, I stamped the image on white paper with Versamark and embossed with Zing black EP. I then used
Adirondack's Cranberry ink and a dauber to layer on the color. It has an ombre look to it - or at least that's what I was going for. I laid heavy color on the top and lightened it as I went down to the bottom. I then used a paper towel to lightly wipe off excess ink and this is what I got. I punched the window and lightly inked the inside of the card and popped the flower (which I've had forever), added velvet ribbon and a sentiment and I was done! This card is off to Operation Write Home and their challenge this week of miss you cards.
I then decided to experiment with alcohol inks on various surfaces and this is what I got. I used glossy cardstock and Judikins opaque white EP. I use Copic marker refills as my alcohol inks; her the combination is V04 (lilac), BG15 (aqua) and G21 (lime green). It is a very soft pastel effect. I left the cards very simple as I wanted the background and stamp to take center stage.
The next two cards aren't using the resist technique. I embossed the image on SU vellum, which is much sturdier than standard. I then alcohol inked the back of the vellum for a softer, muted effect. The black panel I haven't made into a card yet. I think I like the one with the white EP better (below), it just seems to fit the colors better.
That's it for this challenge. Have fun creating and make sure to play along!
