Welcome to this weeks challenge at
This weeks theme chosen by fellow teamy and very talented Helen is
In The Garden
This weeks sponsor is The Stamping Boutique
and the prize is 5 Digi's of your choice.
I've done two simple cards for the challenge this week.
I've been playing with Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks.
I've made the backgrounds by swirling the inks and blending solution on to the coated card stock. Then I have just stamped an image using Stazon black ink into the bac ground. The same image has been stamped onto the corner of the base card in Distress ink Pumice stone and the sentiment has been done in the same colour.Then it's all layered up onto a complimentary cardstock.
This has been done the same way as the previous card except that instead of stamping on the base card I have added a punched border using a Marcha Stewart border punch. Because this stamped image is more of a reverse image, (the ink sticks to the background and the flowers are clear) the background looks black and the alcohol ink colours the flowers. Same technique but two differnt looks.
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
