Love Grows Here

Welcome, today I have a card using my newly released Blossomed Dreams A6 Stamp Set #123 from AALLandCreate. You can purchase the new release from our stockists listed HERE.
I opted for something a little different this time around and used my stamps in conjuction with Tim Holtz Alcohol Lift-Ink and I am really pleased with the results. I began by applying a layer of Pitch Black Alcohol Ink to Yupo, applying with and Alcohol Tool and once the ink was dry, which does not take long, I then applied a good layer of the Alcohol Lift-Ink to my stamp, stamped onto the Alcohol Ink background, dabbed with a piece of kitchen towel and then polished to reveal the image in the background. Love this technique.
I also added some parchment to my design so that my flower appeared half on parchment and half as an Alcohold Ink Lift, the parchment adds another tactile layer to my design.
I also included a wooden jigsaw piece which I painted black and then added my sentiment stamped in white, this just adds a touch of dimension to my design and a fun element too. I also included a monoprint in the background using Autour de Mwa's stencil.
I also included some white cotton threads for further texture and added some delicate splatters of white paint.
This is proving to be one of my favourite flowers at the moment and I love how it looks using the Alcohol Lift-Ink.
For further interest I also included a Index Clip and my Dream sentiment again on parchment and on the Alchol Ink background.

These are the products I used in my make today.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really appreciate your comments. Tracy x x
