Alcohol Ink Background
This particular one was inked onto a piece of pearlised paper and I was delighted with the result. The sheen of gold pervaded the inks and left a lovely shimmer effect, which actually doesn't show up too well on this picture. After pouncing the inks onto the paper I stamped it with a Stampin; Up flourish background stamp using Blending solution, then I overstamped it with the SU French Script background stamp using Stazon ink.
The butterflies were simply stamped onto pearlised paper with Stazon and mounted with Nesties.
The sketch is from Cards & Things which I have rotated through 90 degrees.
Flutterby Wednesday - Open Challenge
The food was wonderful and after seeing my placecards, the restaurateur was interested in finding out about my wedding stationery for his daughter's upcoming nuptials!!
