"Contemplation often makes life miserable.
We should act more, think less, and stop watching ourselves live."
(Nicolas de Chamfort)
Sue, this is amazing! Love the Alcohol ink and sanding - such a cool effect! Fabulous card!
Wow Sue, this looks totally amazing!! Absolutely LOVE the effect, - what a great technique!!
And so you should be pleased with it Sue, it's gorgeous! For someone who was a tad reticent about making anything 'masculine' you've absolutely shone! Well done and a hearty pat on the back! >:o) Chris xxx
fantastic effect! Amazing!
What fabulous work Sue. The textures and colours are perfect. Enjoy your Day. Hugs Rita xxx
Just loved this over at CVC, Sue - it's completely gorgeous, especially those altered metallic bits - fab!Thank you for your grunge comment - I think I may well be - I'm always annoyed that I seem to end up with pretty-pretty or well-ordered projects all the time... I'm sure my insides are messier and grungier than that! Need to let go...Alison xx
I know you say it's masculine, and for all intents and purposes, it is with its inner workings of machinery, but how incredibly versatile this card is for both genders! I think it would be the most outstanding birthday card or retirement card or even wedding card. Any event in life that leaves a indelible mark. The sanding of the raised bits made my my eyes widen, but seeing how you painted a few pieces for 'pop' really had me drawn in. I agree with Chris...pat on the back!!! Incredibly crafted Onion :Dhugs to you!Quirks
Just love this card, we have more males than females in my family so I am always looking for ideas for male cards, and this one is lovely, well done!!!
You can be more than rather pleased with your card Sue, for it's gorgeous! Love love your stunning background and the highlighted areas, such a special effect! Hugs, Ira xIra’s Crea Corner
amazing card, sue... the background is simply stunning!! hugs!
Simply amazing. The alcohol on the foil looks awesome with the embossing.
The embossing looks great with a really nice choice of colors. Makes a fab card!
Oh wow... Sue, this is amazing! Those clock faces are stunning. I love the beautiful textures and colors you created. :)
Oh my goodness, Sue! I love this card! Amazing the difference when you sanded. I never use my alcohol inks, so will have to check the video. Thanks for the inspiration! And thanks for letting me know about my card at Inkspirational!
This is terrific....I just happen to have some foil, and of course I have many alcohol inks. I think I'm ready to try a new background. Well done!
Lovely effects on this card love the colours too. Dee x
Beautiful cards! And thanks for the explanation, I'm new to alcohol inks and have tried working with tin foil a tiny bit before, but some obvious things aren't obvious untill they are pointed out... such as embossing AFTER applying the ink, it looked so much better! I haven't finished that card yet, as I find it hard to combine it with embellishments or other stamps, but this card sure inspired me. Thanks :)Debbie / Daqa
