PE: CAS-ual Fridays Contender!! Yay!!
Hello and welcome! Tried something new after a long time, and that got me a bit excited. The alcohol fumes might have been another reason too….
This is something that I had been experimenting on. I wanted to have some other surface to use alcohol inks on – not yupo paper, not glossy paper, not those glossy acetate sheets. Here’s the experiment that I had mentioned in one of my previous posts…though I had only tried blues then, and this particular piece is something I made later, I have used the same base. (More on the base in another post!!)
So anyway, I used red-orange-yellow colors on this one, then used Archival Inks to lift off the color by stamping. I used leaf images from Simon Says Stamp More Spring Flowers and Even More Spring Flowers. I used a similar alcohol ink panel to die cut the Wishes, which is from Pink & Main. I adhered this on a white panel and trimmed a shadow around the die cut. The rest of the stamped sentiment is from Winnie & Walter Sending You stamp set.
Finally added Nuvo Glitter Drops in Honey Gold – I dunno what happened here – did they suck the alcohol ink?? They look almost transparent! I do wish there was a little more golden shine to it, but too late now, since it has dried! (Maybe I need to experiment on that too??!!)
Well, what I used as the base is a small secret as of now – I’ll post a separate post on it shortly. Until then, any guesses?
Meantime, I shall join the following challenges –
