alcohol posies and twigs

I made two more cards with my Whipper Snapper stamps. The first one is with Anna Wight’s Twigs. I love this snowy face! He has been sitting on my desk for months and I finally made a card with him! I thought the patterned paper was perfect for Mr. Twigs, so I drew my colors from there. I finished him just in time- we are getting more snow tonight!

The second card was made with Anna’s Posies For You set and alcohol inks. I also used the Swiss Dots embossing folder again. 😉 Since I had a whole sheet of glossy white and the alcohol inks out, I decided to make more than one of this card. You can see in the thumbnail picture that I started by stamping the roses several times on the glossy white cardstock. Then I applied drops of 3 different colors of ink & the solution onto the felt applicator. The whole sheet was randomly covered with ink and the roses were highlighted with markers.


After the ink from the markers dried well, the roses were cut out with the Coluzzle oval shape. Then I glued them to the gray cardstock and cut them out with scallop scissors. Dots were applied with a white gel pen and it was attached over the ribbon with pop dots. Extra flowers were punched from the left-over cardstock and Stickles was added to the centers.
