You’re A Rare Find!

Alcohol Ink Elements with Focal Images


Hey Heffy Doodlers!

It’s Kelly here, and thanks for dashing over for a quick peek at the blog today!

Today I’m incorporating some colorful alcohol ink panels with the Geology Rocks stamp set, so lets get to it!

I applied some alcohol inks on to a piece of Yupo paper in a rainbow pattern and then trimmed down that larger piece into smaller strips. I glued them down to a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base.

Next, I stamped the diamond images from the stamp set. I actually stamped the center one and then masked it before stamping the other two on either side of the center one.

Using my Versamarker pen, I colored in the diamond images and then poured on some sparkle embossing powder.

After looking at the card, I was still wanting to kick it up a notch by adding more sparkle, so I colored the images with my Spectrum Noir shimmer pen, and then added glossy accents on top! I was very pleased with the result! Not only did I have the shimmer and sparkle, but I had the shine and the texture that definitely make it look more like a diamond!

I stamped the sentiment and then ALMOST called it a day, but then I thought it still looked a little unfinished.

So I trimmed down some glitter cardstock strips that I had in my stash and glued those down to the card. VOILA! That was the finishing touch I needed!

Thanks again for stopping by, and have a crafty day!
