Hello! It’s Day 27 of the 31 Days of Halloween. Today I am sharing a card with another alcohol ink background. I shared a couple of those last week, but you’ll see that this background looks different from the others, as you really ca’t make 2 exactly the same.
I used Ranger’s alcohol inks in Stonewashed, Eggplant, Cornflower, and Pitch Black. The stamped image is from Stampendous, though this particular stamp is no longer offered on their web site. Sometimes you just need to break out some of the older stuff, right?
This is a much bigger image that the little coffins I heat embossed on my first alcohol ink background card. I want to remind you that there are pretty strong fumes emitted when you heat the dry alcohol ink, so please be very careful, or try another technique altogether. But as I heated this (I used VersaMark with Detail White Embossing Powder), the background actually started to crack. This was really more due to the Glossy Photo paper I used, rather than the alcohol ink, but I really liked the effect. You can see some white hairline cracks on the bottom and left side of the card.
Again, this is a large stamp, so I didn’t add anything to my black card base. The effect is kind of creepy, which is just what I like. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a spooktacular day!
