Alcohol Ink Flower Card

Here is a card that was featured on my old blog and was made using this beautiful Penny Black Chearful Stamp.  I used this stamp to make a set of cards as a gift for my daughters teacher.

Supplies List

Paper Trimmer, Scissors, Foam Adhesive, Double sided tape, White Gel pen, Sticky Back Canvas, White embossing powder, Versamark Ink, Twine, Purple flower, Distress Ink – Tumbled Glass and Chipped Saphire , Foam Blending Tool, Alcohol Ink Blending Tool and felt pads, Alcohol Ink – Aqua, pearl mixative, blending solution, Stamps – Hero Arts Happy Definition and also ‘hugs’ from Sweet Wonderful You set and Penny Black – Chearful, Paper – white cardstock ,


The flower image was stamped with versamark ink onto sticky back canvas and then embossed with white embossing powder.  I then used the alcohol inks and tool to add colour over the image.  This was left to dry.  When completely dry I drew in faux stitching with my white gel pen.  I made the background paper using the Happy Definition stamp and the distress inks and curled the top corner.  I used my Chipped Saphire ink to colour a small section of paper and stuck this under the curled corner for added interest.  I tied twine around the image, curled the stem of the flower and made the small tag using the Hugs stamp.  the card was then adhered together as shown in the photograph.
