Day 1 of Ally Pally today. I'm demoing lots of Justrite stamps and dies and Cosmic Shimmer goodies. Hope to see you there.
Here's today's card -
Yupo White Cardstock. I cut it in half. I added Pool and Mermaid Alcohol Inks using an Applicator Tool and Felt. I then stamped the deer, tree and rock from Lisa Horton's Winter Wonderland Stamp Set using Jet Black Archival. Now, to be honest, I made a complete mess of this (I think my Archival needed re-inking) but that wasn't a problem. I just popped some Alcohol Ink Blending Solution onto the background and wiped it away using Kitchen Roll. A little of the blue colour remained, but I was happy with that. So, I started again!
I applied more Alcohol Ink using the Applicator Tool again, this time just around the edges.
Once the ink was dry, I dusted with an Anti-Static Bag. I stamped the images using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder. Now, Yupo doesn't really like to be heat embossed I discovered so, you have to be really careful or the top layer will start to shrink away!
Lisa's Inky Christmas Stamp Set, again using Clear Perfect Medium and embossed with CS Black Detail Embossing Powder (carefully!).
Black Card and popped it onto a proper Coconut White Card Blank.
