I'm not sure why, but her inks on acetate spread lot more than mine. Decided to change colours too ..
Saving acetate for another attempt, will use the base, see top left, for another card one day, have an idea for it.. waste not, want not..
So tried it way Loll said she did it, except she stamped afterwards, I'm stamping before.
2. Then added the alcohol inks on the back of randomly, I also added Adirondack blending solution so my blobby inks would blend easier.
Used Alcohol turquoise, Cobalt like blue, Silver and Pearl.
I also added two dye inks, SU purple and soft blue. I have mixed ink types before, usually work just fine. Have very few re-inkers of various types and often mix them.
Left once an interesting pattern and colour combo. Allowed to dry well.
Loll didn't do it with cling wrap, but I didn't want blobs from my blobby ink! 😊
So tried the video technique of layering glue (mixed PVA and Tacky craft glue) on back of dried alcohol ink.
Had funny accident with black ship image, accidentally added inks to the side that was stamped and embossed. It took some of image off randomly and left some. I looked at it and thought it looks just like a ship in a fog. I could reuse it like that, or re-stamp it on top using a positioning acetate sheet as guide, or lay a verse greeting over that part.
Die cut the acetate image after backing it with card stock with Spellbinders Labels 25. Added a hand cut gold base to it.
First Sun in Sept. is our Father's Day in Oz, so all this persistence was for my darling 88 y.o. dad.
Used the Sizzix Lattice folder on base card. Gold embossed greeting is from very old set called SU Wonderful Woodcuts, only Father's stamp I own. Used top and bottom portion of greeting on stamp (there is an image in between), with Stamp-a-ma-jig to line it it up. Took a couple of goes.
Hessian or frayed burlap across the card, an anchor which was sitting on bookcase next to my cutting machine, for no reason!!
Someone had given them to me. Perfect eh?
God is very good.
So relieved this card finally turned out just as I'd hoped.
Hope you like it too and the step by steps may help someone out there.
