Ina has chosen an interesting trend for Just Us Girls this week.
It you've never tried this technique it can be quite stunning. Foil will stick to the parts of your alcohol ink background that are not quite dry. I happened to have a couple of panels that I did earlier and chose this one to make a card for the challenge.
I cut a PTI stitched frame from gold cardstock, stacked it up with two layers of cardboard and placed it over the alcohol panel on the card base. To keep from hiding any of the ink, I cut a tag from The Greetery, gold heat embossed the sentiment from CP onto vellum and tucked it into the bottom of the frame.
The Design Team and our guest designer Mac Mable have some beauties for you to see over on the blog. We hope they inspire you to make a card for the challenge.
Gorgeous! The alcohol ink in the greens with the gold foil looks fabulous! I will have to try adding the foil to the wet ink. Love the gold sentiment on the vellum tag piece.ReplyDelete
