Above is another alcohol ink card I did. I made a polished stone background of some vibrant alcohol ink colors, punched them into "inchies" and made a mosaic against a copper metallic card. Then I stamped the brand new large flower medallion stamp from Hero Arts, S5356 onto pink cardstock then onto an alcohol ink polished stone background. I cut them out, using part of the polished stone image for the center. I then thought some white would offset all the color. I used my new i-top brad maker from Imaginisce to make a brad from Claudine Hellmuth's Studio Canvas. Thank you Tim Holtz for showing how to make the brad from the canvas! I stamped a greeting (an older Hero stamp) onto the canvas first, and luckily it remained pretty centered as I finished the brad. Pop dot adhesives helped the brad adhere to the center of the flower, and no brad parts show through to the interior of the card! To finish the card, I continued the white onto the greeting at the bottom (Hero Arts) and couldn't resist adding a little bit of the new scrapbook tape I just got--it adds a perfect touch. I love how the black and white give a "base" for all the color on this card.
