valentine card swap

what do reinkers, alcohol ink, and a step by step demo from Wendy Vecchi (http://www NULL.studio490art NULL.blogspot NULL.ca) and i have in common… only the fact that she demo’s with those products and makes a beautiful masterpiece and i not so much!!!!!
so instead i created a piece of art on watercolour paper….WAIT!!! that is exactly what happened i bet.. i was to be using Ranger’s stamping paper (http://rangerink NULL.com/?product=inkssentials™-surfaces-specialty-stamping-paper) not their watercolour (http://rangerink NULL.com/?product=ranger-surfaces-watercolor-paper) paper!!!!

for a laugh you can watch here me trying to figure out how and what to do!!! failed alcohol card (http://www NULL.youtube NULL.com/watch?v=Wyj7p59-80k&feature=youtu NULL.be)

so where is all this leading to you ask.. why to the background of this card i made for one of the ladies in the card swap i am in.

i did love the results, though not what i had originally been going for, and so wanted to created something with it. i attached it to a black card background, dug out my StencilGirl (http://www NULL.stencilgirltalk NULL.com) November stencil kit of the month, added a bit of embossing paste by Wendy Vecchi and here is what i came up with
