Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #449


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Food and/or Drink Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is... 

Anything Goes

 We are using Tim Holtz products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-) 

I used TWO of Tim Holtz's famous mediums: Distress Oxide (for the background) and Alcohol Inks(vellum flowers). 

you make life beautiful

Previously, I made some colorful vellum paper with alcohol inks. I decided to make good use of the leftover velum. I then proceeded to white -emboss the images and fussy cut them out.
Along with the Blending Alcohol Solution, I also used
Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Set GOLD SILVER Metallic Mixatives Ranger Adirondack TIM21247
Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Set GOLD SILVER Metallic Mixatives 

for the shine.


My favorite Distress Oxcide color is Cracked Pistachio.
I did some ink-blending for the background. You can instantly create a colorful backdrop for your focal point. If you have not tried that, you should!

The detailed image from Altenew's Striped Floral are absolutely lovely!

Your card is lovely. I have yet to master a soft background....I tend to use way too much pressure...not good. I love your idea to make vellum using alcohol inks.....I will try this. I especially like your white embossing. Truly makes each 'flower' stand on its own.

Wow! You are rockin' those alcohol inks. You use them to create so many different things. So impressive as is your gorgeous card.
