9 Square Floral


After being inspired by Tim Holtz's blog to use my alcohol inks...I played with them yesterday.
I used Eggplant and Lettuce inks on the "frame" which is made from the waste of a memory card game after punching out the cards. It's glossy chip so alchohol inks do so well with it. I took another tip from Tim and used a piece of felt to make my own stamp pad which I used for all the flora. Some of the flowers look lighter because I spritzed them before stamping. I then used Ice Stickles and glossy accents to finish off the flowers. Here's a close up of the bottom right hand corner. Have a great day and don't forget to scroll down and enter to win some BLOG BOOTY!
