Group of Seven Cardmakers - AI's and Gilding Flakes


Hi everyone it's time for the Group of Seven Cardmakers monthly technique and this moth we have Alcohol inks and Gilding flakes.

The instructions are contained in the videos below
Videos:
Alcohol Inks + Gilding Flakes by Neat and Tangled (11:03)

For my cards I used Yupo and  Graffix White Duralar, I do love how the Alcohol float around the surface when you add Isopropyl alcohol. 
It took me a while to create some good inky edges for the gilding flakes to stick to but I got there in the end. I think both Yupo and Duralar worked the same, so now I have another use for my Duralar.

Group of Seven Cardmakers - Torn edge


Hi everyone the Group of Seven are using a little torn edge for this months technique/design element.


There are a few videos to give you ideas on how to use your torn edges and I hope you give this technique a try with us.

Videos: 
1)  Turn ripped card stock into beautiful cards by Simon Hurley (14:35)
2)  Torn Stenciling Technique by Gina K (5:11)
3)  Ripped Paper Technique by Natasha Foote (12:24)

Card #1 is a scrap from my stash with and embossed background. I tore the card stock and and rubbed some black and brown inks over the edge to simulate burned paper.
Stamp used - Nellie Snellen Robin on a Berry Branch
Stencil - Lavinia
Embossing folder - Carabelle Studio (no longer in business)


Card # 2 is torn masking tape adhered to the card and distress inks blending between. This technique can be combined with stencils or stamps. I always love to use silhouette images with this technique.
Stamps Used - Magenta (14.634.O)


Card # 3 torn paper to create hills. I kept the colours quite pale but if you look carefully you will see lots of little snow drifts between the house and the trees.
Stamps used - Card-io Pine Panorama
