Flower with alcohol ink pearls.


Hi everyone, I re-watched one of Tim Holtz's videos on using alcohol ink pearls, then had a bit of a play.

I added some foil sheet to the tacky areas, although there's only a little bit on this flower head!
The stem was coloured with distress inks using a finger dauber.

The sentiment is by Casual Fridays Stamps - Mum's the Word from 2012. Stamped with versafine clair nocturne and clear embossed. (Darnell sent me this set way back in 2016 and I've used it many times, so thankyou again Darnell!)

I'm linking up to these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday, no patterned paper
AAA Cards, I chose the hot colour scheme

Allsorts I've gone with the April showers bring May flowers option

I've gone with the middle row across: diecut, flowers and embossing.
The sentiment stamp is dated 2012.

Dies: Sizzix wildflower stems #1; Crafts 4 U stitched rectangles;
Casual Fridays Stamps Mums the word sentiment; versafine clair nocturne ink & clear ep; Pearl alcohol inks and a scrap of foil sheet; distress inks; hammer card base.

Thankyou for visiting,

A beautiful delicate design. The colours on your flower head and that touch of foil make for an amazing effect. Thanks for sharing with us at Allsorts challenge.

I've always loved pink, yellow and orange together...your bloom is so vibrant and the touch of sparkle from the foil is really pretty!

So pretty ... love the colours of your flower, Cathy. I can imagine the colours have lots of shimmer with using the pearl AIs. And the touches of gold foil are lovely. xx
