At The Stamp Man fortnightly Challenge this time the challenge is to use alcohol inks with the use of an optional sketch.I decided to try and use the sketch and chose a pink, cream and brown colour scheme so I
could combine my project with another challenge.I started by using the alcohol inks in Pink Sherbet and Expresso to make a panel which I then cut out with a Nestabilities scalloped rectangle and mounted it onto a pearlised brown slightly larger plain rectangle.I folded a base card in pale pink pearlised card and stuck a strip of patterned paper a little in from the left hand side, and the added a piece of pink ric-rac braid down the left of that. I used a Crafty Individual stamp and Versafine Sepia ink pad to stamp the the little girl image.I added a touch of colour with colour soft pencils and cut it out leaving a very tiny cream border.
I fixed the mounted alcohol inked panel to the card, and the stamped image on foam pads at an angle to the bottom left hand corner. This more or less followed the given sketch but because I have used a small picture the card looked unbalanced so I stamped the words Hopes and Dreams from Crafty Individuals onto cream card and cut out with a Sissix tag die. I also cut out a leafy branch from the patterned paper with a Sissix die. I stuck the tag, together with a pink organza bow in the top right hand corner, and then arranged the patterned leaves and some tiny cream and pink ribbon roses from my stash above it.
