More alcohol ink experiments!

This card was another of my experiments in alcohol inks. I applied four colors of alcohol ink (stonewash, wild plum, butterscotch, and cranberry) onto the felt covered applicator. I pounced the applicator in a random fashion onto glossy paper. When the paper was inked, blending solution was dripped onto the paper and formed circles. I spritzed a bit more blending solution onto the applicator and smoothed out the edges of the circles, which produced an effect that reminded me of opals.

I stamped the justjohanna scroll border onto the edges of glossy paper using archival black ink. I die cut a heart from the excess alcohol inked glossy paper, then stamped the scroll border it. The arrow through the heart is also a die cut.

Thanks for visiting today.
