Alcohol inks on Mirror card
I've got some plain 'pillars of light' style card, and some with patterns, so I thought I'd give both a try out. The tub of felts for the blending tool by the way- I bought a pack of felt sheets off e-bay and cut my own. A pack of 10 9"x9" squares cost me £4- the contents of that tub is from one square!
By the way, I give you fair warning now, this is a picture heavy post!
For the first one, I tried out three of the new colours- Mermaid, Indigo and Honeycomb.
This next one is Purple Twilight, Raspberry and SailBoat Blue.
This is one of the pieces with stars in the foil- Poppyfield (another new colour), Pesto and Sunshine Orange were used here.
This one used Raspberry, Wild Plum and Raisin, with a tiny bit of Black Soot added at the end.
I thought the starry background would look good in night sky colours- Purple Twilight, Raspberry, Stream, Denim and Sailboat Blue.
This combo is Botanical, Honeycomb,(both new) and Sunshine Orange.
This one is Indigo, Poppyfield and Terra Cotta.
The four completed panels.
And the three with the pattern.
Now I wondered how the plain ones would look with some embossing folder texture added.
This is a Cuttle bug folder, Gears.
The second two are Tim Holtz folders.
As is this one.
The four sheets, all embossed. You get a lovely deep reflective colour using this card, plus the bonus of changing shades depending on the light source.
