A Touch of Alcohol Ink

Hello friends!
http://shrsl.com/1t5za

I am popping in with a quick post about the Penny Black new release.

A few days ago, I asked followers over my Instagram which NEW Penny Black stamp I should use first. I gave 4 choices and this was the winner! The 2nd place fell to Snowy Owl (which I will share a project soon). 

thankful for you-002  

 Instead of stamping in regular Distress Ink or Distress Oxide, I decided to emboss the image on vellum. Once I did that, I proceeded to add Alcohol Pearl ink to the back and a little bit on the front. 

It doesn't take very long to add Alcohol Ink....
thankful for you-003

While applying Alcohol ink, I was having WAY too much fun and got carried away. I may have added more alcohol ink than I should (guess I was "Alcohol-ink drunk"!!? )
thankful for you

 In order to cover the "imperfection", I added the sentiment on the top right.
It seems to do the "job"! I hope to come up with another version of this wreath.

Love this, Virginia! I don't use vellum enough - will have try this soon.

Your idea of usung the warm alcohol pearl ink colors with the gold embossed vellum is perfect! The name of the stamp may be Homespun but your card is beautiful. The sentiment on the top left corner looks like it is supposed to be there. I have to work at making myself put a sentiment somewhere else other than the bottom right of a card.

Stunning! Have always want to try using alcohol ink on vellum, but I keep forgetting about it. Your beautiful example reminds me again. ;)

Your project glows and is so beautiful. Someday I'm going to open my NBUS bottles of alcohol inks and yupo paper.
