TRUST IN THE TIMING OF YOUR LIFE


MATERIALS: PAF: Spider Mums, Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder, Rose Gold Embossing Powder, Woodless Watercolor Pencils, Fine Frames Cover Die, Altenew Watercolor paper, Foam Squares, Versamark Ink

“What is meant to be will always find it’s way.”

I love the sentiment on the card. Now that our lives are somewhat put on hold, I know in my heart that 2020 will hopefully make us realize what truly matters and make us better people so continue to trust, have faith and be hopeful.

For this card, I stamped the image using Versamark ink onto watercolor paper then heat embossed it using Pure White embossing powder. The image was then colored using the Woodless Watercolor Pencils. I fussy cut the top portion of the flowers and trimmed the left and bottom edges to fit on a top folding A2 sized card. The sentiment was stamped using Rose Gold embossing powder. Both the floral image and the Fine Frames cover die were adhered to the card front using foam squares.


THINKING OF YOU/HAPPY BIRTHDAY



MATERIALS: PAF: SPIDER MUMS, ORNAMENTAL BLISS STAMP, COPPER CRISP EMBOSSING POWDER, ROSE GOLD EMBOSSING POWDER, SCOR TAPE, ALCOHOL INKS, ALCOHOL LIFT INK, FOAM SQUARES, NEENAH SOLAR WHITE CS, VERSAMARK INK

Here are two cards using the same technique. I learned this from Tim Holtz. First, I created the alcohol inked background. I added some alcohol to the Yupo paper, dropped 3 different shades of blue then allowed it to dry. I added more colors using an alcohol ink applicator tool and some blending solution. I added the copper mixative this way, too. When I was happy with the outcome, I used the Alcohol Lift Ink to remove the ink. I made sure to use a Misti for this step so that I can ago back and lift more ink. After lifting, I stamped the lifted ink onto watercolor paper (made sure to position the watercolor paper in the Misti the same position as the background). The stamp was cleaned before reinking again withe the Alcohol lift ink. I did this 4 times. After that, I dabbed the image with dry cloth to remove the excess Alcohol lift ink on the background then used a clean cloth to buff the image. This will make the image stand out more.

I then cut both pieces and then interchanged them to create 2 cards. Remember, lifting and stamping them using a Misti is a must for this technique to work.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY


This is the 2nd card created from the alcohol inked background. For this card, I added an embossed border using the Copper Embossing powder and double sided tape. Sentiment is from the Ornamental Bliss Stamp set.
