Today I have my entry for the
COMPENDIUM of CURIOSITIES Challenge #33,
over at studio L3
hosted by Linda Ledbetter,
the technique this week is,
ALTERED METAL ALCOHOL INKS,
on page 56.
Here's my tag,
Victorian Velvet & Brushed Corduroy,
the stamps used are, swirls/florishes (inkadinkado)
& Ladies (crafty individuals CI-238)
Alcohol Inks,(sunset orange, tera cotta & cranbury)
Archival Ink, (coffee)
Tim Holtz, (distresser)
scraps of paper & card,
Dragonfly charms & fibers from my stash,
& a manilla tag.
I stamped & cut the ladies on a cream card,
I felt the ladies didn't stand out enough,
so I stamped & cut them onto white card
& coloured there cheeks etc with Victorian Velvet Distress ink,
I then used silicone glue to raise them a bit,
& then used foam pads to adhere the tile to the tag.
With the swirls in the background I stamped
& then stamped again without reinking,
so you get a lighter image,
(this is called secondry stamping, I think!)
It gives a lovely depth to your background.
Hope you like it!
