Greetings! Can you believe there are only 10 days left to the 31 Days of Halloween? Today I’ve got another card with an alcohol ink background. Admittedly, I made a whole bunch of these at once, so I will have one more of these backgrounds to share at a later date. What I love about them is how very different they can look from each other, even if you are using the same colors.
I thought this particular background looked very much like a sky, so I really wanted to use this older stamp from Stampendous. It’s not available on the Stampendous web site any longer, but they do offer lots of other stamps that you can use to get a look similar to this one.
As in my post yesterday, I used Ranger’s Alcohol Inks to create this background. I used Stonewashed, Eggplant, Cornflower, and Pitch Black on Epson Glossy Photo Paper. I blended the colors with Ranger’s Blending Solution. Forgive the glare of my light in the photo above, but I wanted you to see the magnificent shimmer that the Delicata Black Shimmer ink from Imagine has. I love that this ink works on glossy paper.
I made my card base out of black cardstock. I edged it with VersaMark ink and then added Marcasite embossing powder. I love the holorgraphic sparkle that’s in this powder.
That’s my card for today. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Wicked Bloggers, all listed below. Thanks for stopping by. Have a creeptastic day!
