It seems Summer finally is saying good bye to us. It was a long one this year.
And we are ready for Autumn, aren't we?
Today I've played again with my alcohol inks. It was my first trial to heat emboss an image on clear acetate and color it using alcohol inks.
My actual plan was to color on the front of the acetate. But I thought the image from Altenew I chose for today's card is to small for that technique. So I colored on the back of the acetate after I heat embossed the image in gold. I used my favorite color combo of alcohol inks (Wild Plum, Raspberry) for the flowers and Citrus for the leaves. At first I used the alcohol ink blending pen filled with blending solution. I took some ink with the tip of the pen and colored the image with that. But it left too many strokes of the pen behind. So I decided to drip the ink on the acetate and erase the ink went outside the lines using blending pen, which made the color more vibrant.
I used Misti tool to align the image on the front panel and on the acetate sheet.
For the background I blended Salty Ocean DI and Soft Garden dye ink from The Ton on the card base.
I chose as my shaker element some gold, green and blue beads mix.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I think I went too far with the sentiment, which I stamped once in orchid and slightly offset gold heat embossed. Maybe a simple black sentiment would have worked better :).
Thank you so much for visiting me today!
Enjoy your weekend!
