(2020 c054) Alcohol Ink Flower
This big Mother’s Day card is for one of my lovely daughter-in-laws. I created the background for the flower with Yupo “Medium” Paper by Legion from Hobby Lobby and Black, Pearl & Pink Pinata Alcohol Ink. After drying, the heavier inked areas were still sticky due to the Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Blending Solution so I rubbed Silver Heidi Swapp Minc Reactive Foil over the surface & it grabbed the foil in places.
The frame was created with Pink Fresh Gatsby Die Set and then cut apart and re-assembled to create the rectangle frame with a diamond in the center (I will use the left over pieces to create something entirely different soon) to frame the flower that was stamped with Build-A-Flower Larkspur by ALTENEW. I used Versamark Ink & Silver Ranger Embossing Powder. See close-up below:
For the background I dry embossed the Gatsby die around the left and top sides. That got a little FUNKY and cracked in places, so I applied Black Soot Distress Inks by Ranger to age those cracks. The sentiment from was heat embossed with Painted Greetings by ALTENEW with Black.
