The Shrunken Alcoholic Flowers!

With the Flowers i made BELOW(on the previous post) using shrink plastic and alcohol inks,I then mounted onto a card.The background of the card is also made using the alcohol inks.The colours i used were Wild Plum,Eggplant and Gold and the leaves were Meadow.

I then added a heart which was a chipboard heart and utee. Moonglow embossing powders were added to produce the rich vibrant colour of the heart, which was then stamped into using a swirl stamp while still warm.

And of course the famous 'Made with Love' embellishment.

Alcohol Inks and shrink plastic

Today i thought i would experiment with shrink plastic and alcohol inks.This was the result.The flower is the free stamp off a previous

For the middle of the flower i have used micro beads.

A Snowy butterfly Garden

Well with all the snow we have been having of late and the lack of colour everywhere,i just couldn't get any motivation with colour on my cards.So I have decided to bring the black and white from outdoors onto my cards.
Though not turned out too bad.
Roll on Spring!!!The three butterflies to the left of the card have been stamped onto shrink plastic.Before shrinking i punched two holes in the centre, so that when they were shrunk down they looked like minature butterfly buttons.

I even took this pic outside in the snow

A Butterfly Garden using Starburst Stains

Here i have used the Starburst Stains.The stains are slightly different from the Moonshadow inks as they dont have the walnut in,but they do have the mica,which gives out a beautiful shimmering effect.There are numerous sets of colours to chose from which complement each other.On this card i have used two colours from the May Day set.There are five colours in each set.They can be used altogether,which look stunning or individually and also as paints.

You can also add the stains into a spritzer bottle and spray on to give a different effect.
The stamp sheet i have used I Aspects of Design-Butterfly Garden as shown below

A Memory Album using the gorgeous Moonshadow inks by Moonglow

I know there are some beautiful papers available today,but have you ever wanted to produce your own backgrounds.Well with the Moonglow range you can.I just love Moonglow and the gorgeous shimmering effects they produce.
Here,on this Memory Album, I have used the Moonshadow inks range.These inks are walnut based with mica in them,which produce the most amazing effects and come in numerous colours.They are great to use for the vintage and distressed look. All the Moonglow range is available HERE

These are the stamps i used on the book.They are the new unmounted stamps from the Aspects of Design range and are available HERE
They are beautiful designs and compliment each other especially used with the Moonglow inks,both moonshadow and the Starburst Stains.
