Penny Black Sweet Perfume

This card is a first for me!  I heat-embossed Sweet Perfume by Penny Black onto the back of Kirkland photo paper, then colored it in using Ranger Alcohol Inks!  I made a video of the process but unfortunately, discovered that at some point I changed the setting to slow-motion so I can’t post it.  GAHHH!!  Anyway, this wasn’t the same as using water color paints, as the ink moved differently.  But I still enjoyed the process!  Instead of dropping ink directly onto the image, I painted with it.

When I finished painting, I trimmed down the panel and adhered it to a layer of black card stock then to a base card of Stampin’ Up Crumb Cake card stock.  The sentiment is one of my favorites, made by Wplus9 in the Beautiful Bouquet-Ranunculus set.  I stamped it out with Versafine Onyx Black permanent ink onto a scrap of Bristol Smooth card stock, then lifted it with a strip of foam tape.  Two raspberry jewels accent the sentiment.

The last thing I did was spatter a little white craft paint over the image.  I just really like to do that!  🙂

  1. I would have never looked at that stamp and thought this would come out of it! I like the stamp because you don’t have to stamp a bunch of flowers masking as you go, but honestly … you bring out the beauty of the stamp more than I could ever imagine. Great job!

  2. Thank you, Lynne! It was very different using alcohol inks to color this in! I’m going to try it again with one of the new Stampendous stamps! 🙂
