My 2nd Challenge at Our Creative Corner, brings you the opportunity to make a Christmas project if you are in the same sinking boat as me, and are way behind with the cards!
The Challenge I have set for this week on OCC is:
Foil and Alcohol Inks.
The technique of dripping Alcohol Inks onto Foil has an amazing effect.
There are various types of foil on the market, and Alcohol Inks work on all of them.
I use these two brands, they are very different in weight.
Ranger is self sticking and for stability you need to adhere on to cardstock.
Spellbinders is heavier, and you can use as is, it comes in various colours, but this does not matter, you just have a different effect with your inks; it is fun.
My preference is the SB.
I used 'Red Pepper' and 'Stream' alcohol inks to drip on top of the tin foil! When you are happy with your result, cut a shape or use as a Bg.My leaves were embossed with enamel ep and the reindeer dry embossed and coloured up with distress stains.
The antlers are a flourish die-cut using the same technique.
I would love you to join me in this Challenge, if you require more inspiration, perhaps this is not enough for your creative juices to flow then no worries........
