Hi crafters. This card has been percolating through my brain for a little while so it’s good to finally make it. I took a piece of photo paper coloured with alcohol ink. I tried the technique in the current CAS mix up card and CAS stencil challenges which is alcohol ink lift. I don’t have an alcohol ink lift ink pad so I tried blending solution and a sponge. I used the ripples stencil from Kaisercraft. The piece was pale and some ink did lift but not all areas. I think this is because any colour going onto photo paper gets stuck pretty quickly. I decided to add some more ink and just as it was finishing drying, I did it again and it was more obvious this time. It is most obvious above the fish and behind the left seaweed. The seaweeds were cut from tissue paper with the Kaisercraft DIY Flora branches die and extra colours added with distress stains. The fish is cut from cardstock covered in aluminium tape and coloured with alcohol inks and copic marker. That die is Kaisercraft school of fish ( currently on clearance at scrapbook.com). Tiny pumice stones and sand courtesy of the beach. The sentiment is from Memory Box Oceanside typewriter sentiments, stamped in Versafine Clair Warm breeze and Green Oasis.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon says Stamp Monday challenge: Make your own background
My choice is die-cutting and stencilling.
Mix it up challenge blog #27: Anything goes , optional foiling. My fish looks like foiling since it’s metal.
Simon says Stamp Work it Wednesday challenge: Foil it. My fish looks like foil as he is made from metal tape.
