Hi, everyone! This week's Featured Stamper over at Splitcoast is Victoria aka Hawaiian....congrats, Victoria! When I saw this gorgeous card in Victoria's gallery, it looked like something I could try to recreate with Alcohol Inks and Lift Ink. I began by covering a piece of Yupo paper with pink, purple, and teal alcohol inks. The sentiment and snowflakes from the SU set 'Beautiful Blizzard' were then inked with Alcohol Lift Ink, stamped onto the Yupo panel and then stamped onto a piece of white cardstock. (Lifting and stamping the snowflakes was not difficult, however, the stamp has to be cleaned each time.) Once the two panels were finished, they were trimmed, matted, then the cards were finished with Dazzling Diamonds glitter glue (which did not show up in the photographs...grrr!).
This week's Clean and Simple Challenge is 'December Birthdays'. The card below, with the snowflakes and sentiment lifted from the alcohol ink panel in the card above, fits this challenge perfectly. Both my sister-in-law and her daughter are Christmas babies, so snowflakes are perfect without being 'Christmas-y'.
Thanks for stopping by!
