Stuck On You

We have had a horrible winter and I have been dreaming of warmer weather.  Unfortunately, this is as close as I am going to be until vacation time.  I pulled out the Stuck on You stamp set  and the Barnwood Background from Concord & 9th.  I also used the Unity/Brutus Monroe background called Barn Wall.  At first, I was planning to use Copic markers to color in the Cacti, but my mid-tone color was dry.  I had to think of another way to add color.

I had not made anything with my alcohol inks.  So I decided to pull out three different shades of green and see what I can come up with.    Since it had been a while since I had seen a demo or used them, I just winged it.  You will see from the video that I ended up changing my mind a couple of times.

For the clay pot, I just used two different shades of alcohol ink.  Once I had my alcohol panels done, I stamped out the image with Staz-on Ink.  I ended up fussy cutting the images and adding foam tape to the back.   For my background,  I ended up using Distress Inks to distress the panels. 

I hope you enjoy the video below.  It has proof that cardmaking can end up taking you a different route than when you started.  If you have any tips for me on how to use alcohol inks, please leave me a comment.  Thanks for stopping by!
