ID: MC Sept16 - Alcohol Ink Sky - Here and There - Deep Within card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: September 2, 2016

I was lucky enough to get a bunch of Kodak photo paper - the kind used in the automatic print machines in Superstore.... So I experimented with it. In theory using photo paper is not good with alcohol inks... but this paper worked beautifully. I think it's because it didn't have the 2nd layer (a thin film) adhered to it - it was the raw glossy paper.

I'm using a couple quote stamps from Quietfire Design  

("Here and There..."); ("Deep Within the Winter...") 


I scored and folded my deep blue toned  card. 

Created my alcohol sky by dropping dots of alcohol inks onto my craft sheet (Aqua, Stream, Pool), adding a bit of blending solution and swiping my glossy paper through the wetness to create a streaky sky. Helped the streaks a bit with a touch of blending solution on my felt. Then dribbled some blending solution here ad there.

Stamped the pine tree scene (Deep Red "Winter Stream") using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed very carefully... It does bubble if too much heat is applied, but when cool lays flat again.

Die cut a bunch of pine trees (Dee's Distinctively "Pine Trees" 3pce set), sponged all over with Distress "Pine Needles" then hit here and there direct to paper with "Forest Moss".

Stamped the quote using the black and clear embossed.

Trimmed down and layered onto the blue card front.

Step 1

On the Inside: Stamped the quote using the black and clear embossed. 

Stamped the background fir trees (Deep Red "Winter Pines") and the hilly scene (Cornish Heritage Farms "The Pines") using the black and clear embossed. Lightly went over the background trees with a dirty green sponge.
