Hello everyone! Do you like alcohol inks? I do, but I don't use them often enough. When I saw the bright, vibrant colors over at Color Throwdown I immediately knew I had to use them for my card. I used orange and red alcohol inks for my panel and then added in some Tim Holtz Gilded alloy to the mix. Once the panel was dry I trimmed it down to fit the layout from Freshly Made Sketches. For the leaf I just used the only alcohol ink I had that was purple in nature - Amethyst. I also added some Gilded to the mix. Once that panel was dry I die cut it with the maple leaf die from the A Jillian Vance Design Grand Leaf Trio die set. To complete the rest of the sketch I trimmed down a piece of off white cardstock and stamped it with a sentiment from a no longer available stamp set from A Jillian Vance Design. I decided to use VersaFine CLAIR Acorn ink instead of a black ink. I thought the brown worked better with all the colors. I adhered the panels with foam tape and then added the leaf using foam tape, as well. I thought the off white panel was a little plain so I added some clear sequins to give the card a little more interest with out taking anything from the alcohol ink panel and leaf. Adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge, too.
Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day!
