Classy & fabulous


Well hello again I am back to show you the end product of some experimenting that I done yesterday !
I got some alcohol inks for my birthday and wasn't too sure how to use them (and I am still awaiting delivery of the blending tool and blending solution) so I thought I'd just try painting it onto an image. I had stamped onto watercolour paper so of course it drank up the ink like a sponge and gave a rather uneven finish - but I have to say that I love it !

I think it has given the dress a fabric look - like taffeta. This is why I love experimenting with stuff although I don't have much time for it lately.

I added the double border with just a ruler and a black biro !
This is the first time I have used this stamp and sentiment which are both clear stamps from Kanban. The gorgeous vintage inspired paper is another birthday present - from my mum and dad, it's the hanoverian linen paper pack from the V & A.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges;

The ABC Challenge
- O is for old fashioned
The Res-Q-Challenge - Something that makes you happy (fashion - this dress would make me V happy!)
A Day For Daisys - Very vintage

Thanks for taking a look I hope you'll pop over again sometime x
((hugs)) Suzie xoxo

PS if anyone has any hints and tips for using alcohol inks they would be greatly appreciated, please leave them in the comments section or feel free to email me x
