Thank Goodness for Alcohol ...

Nah, not the one you drink (although I could use a glass just about now), but the one you use on projects. Like the one you are seeing now. Here's another project we did last week. This time, the stamped image was done on a Stampbord "mini-bord" by Ampersand Art Supply that I got at Heather's Stamping Haven in Nepean. These "mini-bords" are great because they are thick but light and provides a surface that is almost non-porous. The images stamped on those are crisp. From what I understand, they can also be scratched to create details. If you look at the second picture you might see that the tile has been embossed with clear powder. It is too bad the picture doesn't show the full effect. It is quite nice. Also, I have mixed the colors and some Gold Mixative for a different effect. I am having so much fun with that technique... can you tell?! Take care!

- SU stamp set: Doodle This (Spring Mini Catalogue)
- SU inks: Basic Black, Versamark
- Ranger's Adirondack Alcohol Inks: Lettuce, Red Pepper, Butterscotch, Golf Mixative

NOTE: j'alternerai de l'anglais au français puisque je trouve mes messages trop longs lorsqu'ils sont bilingues. Demain: le français!
