Hello and happy Saturday!
Yesterday I had a blast with alcohol inks. I was wondering whether the glossy CS can stand the heat embossing and whether the embossing can hold the alcohol inks inside the image. So I went with this idea yesterday and was so happy to see it working!
To start off I stamped two flowers of Magnolias for her stamp set from Altenew on a glossy CS using embossing ink and heat embossed it in white. I then started to color them by dropping the alcohol inks into the image. I used Wild plum, Shell pink and Peach bellini for the flowers and Botanical and Citrus for the green background. I tilted the CS in order to bring the inks to the part as I wanted. I added some bright dots and circles using Blending solution. The ink splatters were made with a brush. I then cut sides of the panel with a deckle scissors and mounted it flat on a card base on both sides of which I added a thin strip of green Bling CS.
The sentiment is from Beautiful Day stamp set. I heat embossed it using Liquid Platinum EP on a black CS and adhered it using some foam tape.
To finish off I added some dots using Gold Pico embellisher.
I am so happy I’ve found another way I can use the alcohol inks. I love the vibrant colors of them.
I chose the colors with the Inspiration Challenge March 2016 on Altenew blog in mind.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for the time you share with me!
Wishing you all a great weekend!
