Alcohol Background ATCs - Pink #3 (May 2008)

Created: May 4/08

Modified: Jan 9, 2009

All of these start off with several alcohol ink backgrounds both streaky and mottled either on Pearlized "Cocoa" paper or glossy photo paper. Check out the samples of the various backgrounds I made creating streaks and mottled patterns. Link at the bottom of the page.

They also all have some variation using the Cuttlebug "Script" embossing folder I just bought. Love it. I started with a lavender cardstock which I colored with Pan Pastels (purple and orange) and a sponge. Ran it through the Cuttlebug then added a bit more color on the high spots.

I rubber stamped the "Orchid Flower (The Artful Stamper) onto a piece of clear plastic (I save the clear plastic I get around mousse cakes) with black Staz On, then colored it with a bit of faux stained glass window paint. Rubber stamped the word "Memories" using an alphabet stamp set (MSE Girlfriends #TT210) with the black Staz On on the glossy paper. Mounted it to a purple cardstock.

Rubber stamped the Queen Anne's Lace (Magenta Botanicals) with Inkadinkado white stamp pad and white pearl embossing powder, but it was too light so I over stamped it with the same stamp pad and detail white embossing powder.  Rubber stamped the word "Create" (Quietfire Design) with gold stamp pad and Queen's gold embossing powder on a piece of vellum and glued it to my ATC with Diamond Glaze just on the edges.  Punched out the dragonfly (Whale of a Punch) and added some crystal glitter around the edges of the wings. Mounted it to a lavender cardstock.

The flower sprig is cut off from the large piece (dogwood sprig Magenta Botanicals) Same as Mystery, but mounted my 2 Rubber stamped the quote (Quietfire Design "As you dream") with black Staz On. Punched out the dragonfly (unknown) from some decorated paper I had. Mounted it to a pink cardstock.

Made a stencil with a Lace Doily edge punch by Martha Stewart and then used the pan pastels to color the paper. prior putting it through the Cuttlebug. Added the lace doily border punched from a piece of glossy alcohol background. Rubber stamped the word "Imagine" (the Stamping Studio by Roann Matthias) with black Staz On on a pink metallic high gloss cardstock. Mounted it to a pink cardstock. Punched out the dragonfly (Whale of a Punch) and accented the edges with crystal glitter.
