Welcome Back

 

This is a bit of a combination of things today. I made these pages for Santtu’s book for the Stamping Mad Book Swap for July 2008. Her theme was ‘Winged things’. When the page arrived I was stuck for what to do with it as it was plain book board! Yikes! Then I remembered reading http://isascrapandstamp.wordpress.com/2008/04/10/new-technique-alcohol-inks-metallic-paint/

and I had some gold and silver metallic paint dabbers so I gave it a try.

Here is how the pages turned out.

And side two…

It was scary to craft outside of my comfort zone but once I got into it, I loved it. I have made another one on a smaller scale for myself that I’ll make a book out of sometime. I am also putting this forward as my piece for this months challenge under;

The Virtual Crafting Challenge as the theme was Inks 2, and included solvent and alcohol inks ;)

Welcome Back

I have been playing with alcohol ink, I have had my ink for a couple of years but not really made friends with it. Until a couple of weeks ago. I read a tutorial describing using it over card painted with metalic paint and decided to give alcohol inks a try over Mirror board.

I used quite a thick mirror board and applied Denim and Stonewashed ink over silver mirror board using the aplicator tool and got this;

I used the blending solution over the ink to give it the marbled look. Make sure you work on a craft sheet to protect your table. Use the Blending solution to clean any excess ink of the sheet once you have finished.
