Birthday Wishes with Spellbinders :D

 

Messing around with Copic Various Ink Refills to create a really vibrant background :D I then over-stamped with the Moon Flower stamp with Archival ink (I was hoping to do that technique where you wipe it off while the ink is wet and it removes the alcohol ink, but it didn't work lol) :D For the focal elements I stamped out the Moon Flower again and coloured with Copics, making sure to use some of the same colours I used in the background :D I used the gorgeous centre rectangle from the Tallulah Frill die set, layered some vellum behind, then finished the card with a sentiment and scattering of Nuvo drops :D :D Hope you liked the card!! I'm hoping to do more experimenting with my Copic refills over the coming weeks too! There's been a come back for alcohol inks recently, and I've never actually had a chance to play with them, so I did some calculations and Copic refills are WAY cheaper!! 25ml or ink for £5.95 rather than 15ml of Ranger Alcohol Ink in a 3 pack for £12 plus £10 postage!! So I treated myself to a rainbow of colours (picked from the actual markers I would use to colour a rainbow) that way I can experiment and also refill Copics when I need to too :D :D :D

Brushstroke Hearts Backgrounds :D


A trio of rather quick cards using the wonderful Background Stamps from CraftStash :D Background stamps are so versatile, and I'm certain I will be using these ones more in the future too :D :D I think having them made from photo polymer helps you get a better overall impression too as they are more malleable, and you don't even need a stamping platform or block to use them either, simply leave them on the backing sheet and stamp them from that (see the Dragonfly video from a little while ago :D) I'm hoping to get round to some more Art Journal layouts soon, and these kinds of backgrounds will be perfect to add some quick patterning :D :D :D

With Love Aladine Izinks & Crackle Paste :D

 

Playing around with Aladine inks and crackle paste :D This was just a cheapy stencil I got from The Works, but I thought it would look fabulous done in crackle paste, and what better way to try out some of my new Aladine Izink products than to create a messy ink background, do a bit of ink flicking and also some ink blending too :D :D :D I finished the card with a scattering of sequins, which I then added some Nuvo Glitter Drops to the centres of, and then I added my sentiment :D Hope you liked this experimental card, I love just playing around, not expecting to actually make something pretty, just having the freedom to mess around and experiment :D :D :D
