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
