Beyond Normal


I've been playing with alcohol inks and sticky silver foil tape. I stuck the sticky foil onto a piece of card and ran it though the French script texture fade. Coloured the background with snowcap AI and once dried, dripped on the individual colours cranberry, slate and pitch black, waiting until one dried before applying the next colour. 


Close up of the embossed background with the alcohol inks and the wire frame is attached with T!m's tiny attacher staples.

I'm impressed. Liking the colour! I live the way you "just play".

LOVE it Sam. At a time where layers on cards spells higher postage prices this is a brilliant way of adding texture/interest without depth. Having said that it works well with painted texture paste too! jenny x
