Just want to share a card I have made for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, which this week is 'In The Family, and you can find all the details here...
Now, to me, family isn't defined by biology, it is defined by love, and here is my entry...
I decided to use some supplies I hadn't used in a loooooong time - my alcohol inks!! So my background is a mix of Blue, Pool, Yellow and Gold alcohol inks, with a tag coloured to match in distress inks. I then stamped both the background and tag using this lovely sentiment, which sums up my thoughts on family to perfection, using Sheena Douglas's 'Only word's, Through the rain' stamp set and over-laid them so the stamping would match up whilst giving dimension.
I decorated the card using some vellum and an EK Success 'Doily' border punch, some twine and sequins.
I've gotta say, I really enjoyed making my background with the alcohol inks, and have been inspired to experiment a little further with them.
Thanks for stopping by, please feel free to leave a comment.
