Hello crafters! This week I got out my neglected alcohol inks to make a simple background for some wonderful new Carabelle Studio stamps by Azoline.
Carabelle Studio Stamp Sets - Cadres et Fleurs par Azoline, Frises Delirantes par Azoline, Leafs by Birgit Koopsen
Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink - Pool, CitrusDetail Embossing Powder - White
Sakura Pigma Micron Pen - Black - 0.45mm
1. I used the Alcohol Ink Applicator to apply Pool ink first in downward stripes on the cardstock, then I made some stripes across these, leaving gaps between. I then filled in the gaps with stripes of Citrus ink, to get a plaid look background. I trimmed this to fit my card blank.
2. I used Versamark Ink to stamp the Carabelle flowers and 'stems', then applied detail white embossing powder, using a heat gun to melt the powder.
3. I stamped the Birgit Koopsen phrase in black Archival ink, then partially stamped just the crosses from it to the top left, above the flowers. I added some detail to the embossed flowers with a fine black pen, inked the edges of my art with black, and attached it to the white card blank.
Until next week,
