Last week in the Paper Arts group I belong to at the Embroiderers Guild we were playing with Alcohol Inks so I decided to do this months postcard using them.
I used my Pinata Alcohol inks in Magenta and Sapphire Blue and that other funny looking thing is the tool that I used to apply the inks to the Acetate.
I used both colours on both of these pieces of acetate --the one on the left had more magenta and the right one had more Sapphire Blue.
I have placed them on top of a piece of white cardstock to show you that they have a very mauve tinge to them--------------
But when I placed the right hand one on top of a piece of blue cardstock the mauve tinge dissappeared and became the colour I was looking for.
Next I used the stamp shown from Amazing Creations and printed it onto the blue cardstock with the Stazon ink ----
and it looked like this----
From the pink piece I cut out a Vase and mounted it onto a very pale green piece of cardstock to get the right colour that I was after.
I added some rubons with the verse printed on them to the stamped card--this by the way is not the verse on the Calendar but it is a personal message that I wanted to send to Lynda.
I stuck the Acetate down with Vellum tape and then added the white flower (with a yellow brad for the centre) on the outside along with the vase.
I placed a tiny butterfly on the vase only because there was a butterfly on the calendar.
I also put a very fine gold border around the edge.
I hope it meets with your approval Lynda.
