Light Alcohol demo

in Art Helps Me Breathe

For the demo, we played with Ranger’s new “light” alcohol inks. I also wanted to show how to use the new smaller masks from Tim Holtz and his wonderful hardware. It’s not quite super apparent in the photo, but those daffodils (stamp set by Hero Arts) stamped with Brilliance yellow look fanastic. They shimmer and shine just like spring coming into our lives after a long winter. The Happy Spring is an old Stampa Rosa stamp. Sorry, they are no longer in business. Just one more reminder that when you see a stamp you like, you should get it then, because they won’t be making them forever.

I really did not like this background at all when I first made it, but after putting it together as a card, well I love it now. The “Amen” verse is a stamp by Limited Edition and the cool metal frame is one of Tim’s.
This last card is just another example of how with alittle something extra these polished stone backgrounds really make a nice collagey card.

Happy spring!
