Alcohol inking again

Been dabbling again with the alcohol inks while the weather is not so good.

Of course I'm just new to stamping etc., although I've had the materials for a few years, have just opened them, so I'm easily pleased with my results at the moment. Have just received more materials delivered today and it's rainy outside, so I'm rarin' to go! Just need to figure out exactly what's not quite right with my camera........

Dabbling with Alcohol Inks

The weather was beautiful today and I managed to get a round of golf but at the weekend it was very dull and cloudy, so I decided to take the plunge and open some of my packets of stamps and alcohol inks which have been sitting unused for some time now.
I came up with this:-

What I did was - make the background with alcohol inks - Pink Sherbert; Juniper and Stonewashed. I then stamped the corner border with Stazon Olive Green. I stamped a butterfly onto the rest of the background cardstock and used a die to cut it out. The homemade washi tape is stamped with a bird and leaf stamp.
The teabag folded medaillon is using "Sue Richardson's Queen of the Meadows " fold. The raspberry coloured lace I made and coloured myself. (I used to make and fire my own porcelain dolls and this is some leftover lace from that).
I also did another background and stamped a flower with Stazon Black and then on top I stamped again with Adirondack Lights "Snow Cap".

Think I'll need to do the stamping thing more often as it's quite fun really and I love the unique "one of a kind" backgrounds.
Thanks for looking
