today is another recipe card for the recipe exchange over on the paper patch crafts MB so i kept it simple for laminating purposes. i used Jen's SFYTT for this week:
and here is the card:
the stamps here are done using the studio G pigment inks - they stamp very smoothly and the colors are very soft and pretty. the bottom squares are done with alcohol inks.
Gather supplies: Ranger glossy paper, 2-3 colors alcohol inks, alcohol metallic mixative (optional), alcohol blending solution, felt pads and blending tool. Remember you can find all of these items in the web store.
begin by opening all of your inks and the blending solution. squirt each color onto your felt pad forming a dot like this picture - keep the colors separate, not on top of each other. ad one or two drops of metallic mixative if you are using it. put a few drops of blending solution also. the more blending solution you use the lighter the colors will be.
working quickly dab the felt onto your glossy paper in random patterns. add more ink if you need to as you go along. dabbing on top of areas already colored will make interesting patterns. it is essential to use glossy paper as alcohol inks are made for NON-POROUS, slick surfaces. y ou can use photo paper but the effects are not as vibrant.
