UPDATE: After many requests, I will happily create a video on gilding flakes and alcohol inks and post it on August 31st!
Alcohol Inks and Gilding Flakes make a perfect pairing……..To create the background, I added some Patina and Pistachio Alcohol Ink to some Yupo paper. The results when dry are stunning….. The Gilding Flakes add some texture and dimension to the background panel.
Once everything was dry, I stamped the mermaid tales from the S’Whale stamp set in Catherine Pooler Midnight ink, sprinkled on some Raven embossing powder and heat set. NOTE: It’s Yupo paper so it warps easily. I made sure my heat tool was nice and hot and then quickly moved the gun around my paper many many times until the embossing powder melted.
