Alcohol Pallette

Card Patterns     Sketch 122
As you can see I still have my alcohol inks out. I have to say in playing with them the last few days I have been more satisfied with the results than I was when I got them last year.
On this background I used Meadow, Stonewashed, Rust, Silver Mixative, and Blending Solution. 
When I saw this sketch at Card Patterns the flourish caught my eye. I've been finding odd bits and pieces on the back of my work space and the heart scroll grunge piece was among them. Ah-Hah, a card idea is born.
I used Vintage Photo distress embossing powder and a black Sharpie to age the scroll piece and running with the rusty coppery feel in the background I added the copper dry embossed piece to the bottom and some of my favorite copper ribbon. Of course, this stamp from Tim Holtz Collection seemed a great fit for the stamped element.

Thanks for visiting and viewing,
