This card is for Play Date Café challenge 120, and for the Hangover Winterfest challenge on Two Peas to do challenges you didn't get a chance to do during Winterfest (I did the Lonely Hearts challenge, to use old stamps that you used to love and haven’t used in a while).
Here's the gorgeous inspiration panel:
And this is my card:
I loved the bottles with the flowers on the inspiration panel and try to make my own with modelling film, stamps and alcohol ink. I drew two bottles on modeling film, cut them out and coloured the one green and the other blue with alcohol ink. When they were dry I did the alcolhol ink kissing technique on them, using two different mirrored text stamps and Archival ink. Stamp and then carefully wipe off the ink, the ink takes of the alcohol ink underneath, very cool. It shows more on the blue than on the green bottle. If you haven’t tried modeling film, when you heat it up you can shape it and when it is cool again, it will keep that shape. If you are not happy with the result, just heat it up and reshape it. Fun stuff.
The flowers were die cut with a Cuttlebug die from a piece of watercoloured paper coloured with Distress Ink and water. I used twine for the stems. The background is a also a piece of watercolour paper coloured with Distress Ink (Stormy Sky, Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans) and water, and then stamped with an old favourite – a Swedish script letter stamp.
Three close ups:
You see the shape of the bottles better on this photo.
Here you can see the kissed text a bit better, it was hard to photograph.
Thank you for looking!
