So, the first experiment was with the new Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I had Birthday Blooms our for another card and it's such a lovely set that I couldn't help but ink it up again.
The Stampin' Blends go on so well, blend so easily and are available in great colours. I'm still learning how to drive them but wow - I'm enjoying them!
Card: Pool Party, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Basic Black
Stamps: Birthday Blooms, Thoughtful Branches
Inks: versamark, Tuxedo Black
Other: Stampin' Blends, white embossing powder, dimensionals, clear faceted gem
The second card also came about today while I was mucking around with applying ink straight onto the paper. A swooshing kind of motion gives some interesting effects. I ended up with a panel that looked useable, so I made it up using the same sketch.
Card: Melon Mambo, Garden Green, Whisper White, Basic Black, Lemon-Lime Twist (for the letter shadows)
Stamps: Thoughtful Banners
Inks: Melon Mambo, Lemon-Lime Twist, Powder Pink, versamark
