Well this is one of the first cards from the New Year. I am so happy with how this turned out...but it took a whole lot of time in coming. I fussed over every detail and just as I was about to give up. It all fell in place. Thankfully.
The stamp is called Paisley Flower by Posh Impressions. I fell in love with and had to have it. I am mad for paisley , it's actually a secret obsession. Well, perhaps not secret any longer.
The technique is what I am excited about and I know some of you love your alcohol inks as much as I do. (Come on Karen admit it!) I can sit and play all day and just make back grounds to go into the pile.
Well this is more funner (yes that's a word) It's an alcohol swoosh technique.......cause it is more a swoosh action then a smoosh action. LOL
You need a nonstick craft mat, alcohol inks and your blending solution. Oh yes and beautiful glossy card stock. I love glossy card stock. :)
You drop out onto the mat a couple of drops of alcohol ink, I found out quickly that 2 colours work best or you get mud. (Not pretty) Add your blending solution and then swoosh your card stock through it. Glossy side down. Don't ask! LOL
This gives you a beautiful, quick drying back ground or accent piece. I love this technique and wait to hit the alcohol inks again.
I encourage you to try it......you'll like it!
