Just loving Rubber Cafe's Take Flight Creative Cafe Kit. I kept today's card extremely Clean And Simple, using just two of the images from the Soaring Above stamp set included in the kit, letting the images shine.
I stamped the images on some of the designer paper and kept the color scheme of this card simple.
The sentiment is popped up on Kool Tak Foam Tape over the ribbon. The bird is popped up on foam tape as well for added dimension.
Today's card for Prickley Pear features the Polished Stone Technique. There is just something magical about alcohol inks on glossy papers! I decided it was time to get them out again and play with them along with some Tim Holtz Stencils. I used CLR025B Steampunk Gears 3 Clear Set.
For my backgrounds I am using some old Studio 2 alcohol reinkers (similar to Copic makers). You could either use Copic reinkers or some Ranger alcohol inks. I chose Mauve, Indigo and Ice Blue. I am using alcohol, but you could use Ranger's Alcohol Blending Solution or Copic's Colorless Blender Solution.
I am using a Ranger handle with some felt on it. I added some Ranger Silver Mixative to the mix for a bit of shimmery fun.
When I do this technique I usually do a whole pile. I use glossy cardstock, but I also throw some matte photo paper scraps into the mix, I love the alcohol inks on this coated paper.
I mean, really....love the mixture of colors you get when you mix the inks together! Pure watercolor wonder!
So, use whatever inks you might have available to you to create some fun backgrounds today!
I popped the balloon, sentiment and the strip along the bottom up with Kool Tak Foam Tape. I folded the ribbon in half and tucked it under the strip along the bottom for a fun and different ribbon treatment. A fussy cut bug and a few gems finish off my card.
