You've been waiting for this... Linda Elbourne's first project on this blog and it is such a beautiful project (they always are). After talking about misters yesterday, we are featuring alcohol inks and permanent inks today used with Fragments and Shrink Plastic.
So over to you Linda...
I die cut the butterflies from Shrink Plastic and stamped on them with StazOn ... Why StazOn? Because it is specifically designed to be permanent on any shiny surface.
Once shrunk ... I then added colour with Alcohol inks! If you blow gently on the inks while they are drying ... you get a lovely soft colour which looks like vintage glass.
Some butterflies were hole punched before shrinking ... but the others were shrunk, shaped and attached to fragment charms which had also been coloured using Alcohol ink and then attached to white gloss card stamped with Ranger Archival ... that is my "Go to" ink for just about everything!
You can find our metal charms in the embellishment section on our website

Love this!! Makes me want to sit and craft and make one myself.
Thanks Linda :O)
Tip of the day
Use the alcohol ink on one side of the shrink plastic/fragment and the stazOn on the other. StazOn being solvent based is not compatible with alcohol inks. If you want to stamp on the side you coloured with alcohol inks, then use the Ranger Archival instead ;)
See you tomorrow
