Inky Fun

Today I have two cards inspired by Rosie's picture challenge over on Craft Mad &Loving it Group. Rosie choose Starry Night by Van Gogh - a gorgeous picture. I was inspired by the colours predominantly- the rich blue and yellow.

For my cards I played with Ranger Glossy paper and alcohol inks in Sunshine Yellow, Latte and gold. I also had a play with Sunshine Yellow and Cranberry on to apiece of Ranger Memory Glass. Then I stamped the Dandelion seed head stamp from Lavinia Stamps in Black Stazon over the top. Mounted on blue textured card stock from Cutting Edge Crafts and mounted one on Kraft card stock and one on White. My pal Kathy gave me some seam binding that she, Wynneth and Lauren had dyed with alcohol inks and one of the pieces matched so I used that too. Added sentiments and stuck the memory glass on with sparkle Mod Podge.



I am pleased with these and will definitely be playing with this technique again soon.

I am entering these into:

Allsorts - free and easy play July challenge

  1. WOWser Cherry, great makes - love playing with alcohol inks (mus tdo it more often esepcially since I just bought three more!). Your colour combo worked out great and I think the seam binding was made for your project (psychic or what?).
