It's time for some more inspiration from the girls at STAMPlorations.
Remember, we'd love for you to join us in our Inspiration Playground with a CASE of one of the many cards that we share with you throughout the month on the STAMPlorations blog. You can find the linkup for April's Playground here.
Maybe you want to get oh-so-inky and give this new-to-me technique a try?
Alcohol inks and acetate. But probably not the way you're thinking. I was intrigued when I saw Tammy T. trap the ink between two pieces of acetate, creating the look of liquid in a bottle. Are you intrigued yet? There is a wonderful tutorial for this technique on her blog.
This time around the DT is pulling out some of the older stamp sets. I chose Bloom Sketches Daisy 2 (with a sentiment is from Daisy 1). The angle on this bloom is just perfect and so realistic. Agree? I had to use it to go with my realistic water in the jar!
All my bloom needed in addition was a stem, a table to sit on and a bit of color to its center! I must admit this technique is amazingly cool. Captivating.
FYI, the alcohol ink eventually dries out, so be sure to mail it while it's still purty :)
I'm hooking up at these challenges:
Muse #113 - loved Michele's blues and stylized blooms and watery looking background
Addicted to Stamps and More #140 - keeping it simple with flowers on a wooden table I am
House of Cards April Challenge - Is that not a cool photo? My card doesn't have the butterflies (I nearly put a tiny red punched one on, but it didn't fit the bill) but does have the vibrancy.
Shopping our Stash - Lost and Found - My alcohol inks had been neglected far too long!
Thanks for looking. Have a wonderful weekend.
