Nov 11, 2008 - Alcohol Ink

I thought I'd try rubber stamping with alcohol inks. I put some ink onto my melt art mat and sprayed with a bit of Pinata blender, pressed my rubber stamp into the mix and stamped onto glossy cardstock. I then misted the cardstock a touch as well 9that's the rust colored leaves which were only outline designs, but when misted blended into a solid area). When dry I rubber stamped with Versafine black onyx, and didn't wait long enough for it to dry, because I smeared the ink... So I took a tissue and wiped as much of the stamped image away. In the detail pic below you can see the ghost of the Versafine stamping. Used Distress stamp pads (about four colors) and just swiped it all over the edges. I then rubber stamped my leaf design again with a Permanent stamp pad. and heat set. Used a Ragner's white Inkssentials pen for the berries. Mounted this to a burnt orange Monochromatic Bazzill cardstock, then onto a Mi-Tientes burgundy cardstock.



I pounced alcohol inks onto a piece of opaque white shrink plastic, then used my Cuttlebug and a Spellbinders die for the oak leaf. Shrunk it in my toaster oven (dedicated one), edged it with a gold Krylon leafing pen and attached it to my card with Golden's heavy gel medium. Added the gold border with a Sanford Uni-Ball gold pen. The first section of the quote I wrote with a Mitchell nib and Moon Palace Sumi Ink. THe second portion I rubber stamped (Quietfire Design) using the Versafine stamp pad. I rounded all the corners with a rounder punch.
