Good Morning all, Brrr what a cold one, i hope you are all keeping warm and cosy.
So the theme this fortnight at Make My Monday is
GOLD OR SILVER
I dug out the mirror card and decided to go all out and use it as the main feature with alcohol inks, getting a decent photo has not been easy at all.
I first die cut silver mirror card into stripes and dry embossed with flowers, i then used alcohol inks to colour it. I then used a cotton bud and blending solution i removed the ink from the flowers. I mounted them onto white card, then silver mirror card and a white 6.5 x 5" card blank
I then stamped a sentiment onto white card and die cut into an oval and mounted onto silver mirror card. I kept the embellishment simple with one metal flower to show of the background.
Trying to show the colour better.
This shows the embossed panels coloured with the inks before i removed it from the flowers, you can see the colours so much better here.
and onto a gold mirror card version
Same details as the first ones but instead i used red, orange and yellow alcohol inks onto gold mirror card and all the mats are gold.
This shows the colour a bit better
and below is the embossed panels before i added the alcohol inks
Its a shame i couldn't get a photo to do it justice, but i really enjoyed playing with my alcohol inks again and in a different way for me so will be doing it again.
