Today I’m showing another technique that you can do with metal. Make sure you check out Sencie’s metal sale if you haven’t already! She’s offering a great deal and it’s a fun way to try a couple new techniques that may become favorites. A few months ago I purchased all of the Ranger alcohol inks because I just had to have them. I put them away in their designated storage spot (big mistake) and promptly forgot that I had them! There’s nothing I love more than good storage, but I’ve decided it’s time to come up with some storage solutions that will allow me to see what I have! I purchased the Clip it Up several months ago for this exact reason and I love it! I seem to be veering off track… back to the point. When I got these metal pieces I knew I had to try the alcohol inks on the metal. I used the Felt Applicator Tool to apply Red Pepper and Meadow alcohol inks. I followed that by dabbing the alcohol blending solution over the top of the color to blend them together. I did a whole sheet of metal with the alcohol inks and I was able to get three cards out of one sheet using this layout. The Pucker Up Elzybells image is colored with Stampin’ Up markers. The berries on her skirt and in the mistletoe are embellished with Stampendous red dot sparkers. I used my mini scalloped scissors on the image and sentiment. Whenever I use these scissors I always get several questions about where I found them. I found them at a scrapbook store going out of business sale. They are Fiskars brand, but I have never seen them at the big chains like Michael’s and Joann’s. So I guess that’s not much help if you’re looking for these scissors! The cardstock colors are Real Red and Wild Wasabi. The Wild Wasabi layer is stamped with the Polka Dot Backgrounder from Cornish Heritage Farms. Have you been keeping an eye on the hit counter in my sidebar!? Just in case you missed the last announcement, I will be having a week-long blog party to celebrate 1 million hits! We’re almost there! Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful day!
