I flipped through Volume II and found the Alcohol Ink Resist technique on page 59 and knew this was the one. So I grabbed a plastic packaging box from a Sizzix Texture Fade and cut it down to size for a 5 x 7 card. Then I got to work with alcohol inks. Details below.
Here's the card completed. I tried very hard not to get too freaked out worrying over what Tim would think of this and focused on the pleasure of creating.
Alcohol inks on the packaging plastic, then the Alcohol Ink Resist technique.
This is the stamp I used for the resist.
I cut a piece of paper from the Crowded Attic paper stash, distressed the edges and inked them with Vintage Photo then Walnut Stain. This will go behind the plastic and show through slightly.
This may look blurry, but it actually sort of floats. I stamped the image with Black Staz-On onto the front side of the plastic piece.
Everyday, know in your heart you are loved. Couldn't say it any better than this. Tim inspires me every day and I love that guy for it!
In the end, I decided to add these letter tiles for not only personalization but for some added color and dimension.
Be sure to hop over to Studio L3 and check out all the other cards submitted for Tim's birthday. You can also submit your own if you like. Just be sure to post it by January 7th, Tim's birthday!
