Another day, another swap… this time a postcard. I watched a Jennifer Maguire YouTube video before I made this about using alcohol inks and lifting colour through a stencil. So I gave it a go! I added the alcohol ink using an applicator to create stripes across a piece of vellum and then used the blending solution to lift colour through the stencil. This created a really soft finish. I then tore the vellum and affixed it to some card stock using my sewing machine… this is by far my favourite way of added vellum to anything. I then heat embossed the Tim Holtz wildflower using the mixed metal colour embossing powder from WOW. I love the finish of this… it looks so textural. And then I added a little sentiment to finish off. I did add some black cardstock to the back to strengthen the postcard for going through the post. Happy crafting! Catherine
