Alcohol and Embossing


Happy Friday, All!  

Today I have a mini slim card to share, using the amazing new Ornate Flourish Stamp from Impression Obsession.  This background came about from doing the Alcohol Ink  with Lift Ink technique.  

I started with a variety of Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks on Yupo paper.  These are the steps I used to make my cards~
1.  Place Yupo Paper with Alcohol Ink into MISTI.  
2.  Place stamp on MISTI door
4.  Stamp onto the alcohol inked Yupo paper 
5.  Remove Yupo from MISTI and replace with a piece of Neenah Solar White CS
6.  Stamp alcohol ink that has transferred to the stamp onto the cs
7.  CLEAN stamp and remove cs from MISTI
8.  Replace cs with the Yupo paper. 
9.  Ink stamp with Alcohol Ink Lift Ink again and stamp onto alcohol Inked Yupo paper again
10.  Remove Yupo again and replace with same cs and stamp it to intensify the color.  You can also replace with a new piece of cs for a second image if you are OK with the color intensity of the first panel. 
I repeated the process several time and ended up with 3 cs prints of the Ornate Flourish and then this original alcohol ink panel with the negative of the stamped image.  You can see one of my stamped panels on this card HERE.  

The image was trimmed up to make a mini slim card and adhered to a white card base.  I then diecut a Rustic Butterfly from white cs.  I inked it up with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Gina K. Fine Detailed Gold Embossing Powder.  To ground the butterfly, I die cut a circle from the Scalloped Stitched Circles Die Set. Lastly I finished the card with a sentiment strip using the sentiment You Are Amazing.  A sprinkling of gold sequins finish the card.
