Sunny Card with Alcohol Inks
Sometimes when I'm stamping, I have a goal in mind (make a card featuring orange for a dear friend who is retiring from work).
These goals generate a few ideas (alcohol inks - since I don't have much orange paper, pick a great Club Scrap stamp, find a good sentiment).
I settled on the sentiment right away, but couldn't decide on the image. The mosaic card I made earlier this week was a "reject." I loved the colors, but wasn't quite as happy with the image - I wanted more black on the image to contrast with the bright colors. Check out this video from Ranger to learn more about the technique and materials to make the orange panels.
Besides the alcohol ink background here, nothing fancy. Just a lot of layering of some great papers, a little rick rack for some added interest, and some great stamps in black ink.
