I created another card today, with one of my gelli plate prints and some of my new supplies.
I curved both parts of the sentiment to match the curve of the print. I didn't add any other embelishments, because the print is busy enough.
Fot the envelop I (once again) didn't want to mess around with acrylic paint, so I sponged on something new I got from Aladine, a French company. It's called IZINK, and seems to be some kind of thick liquid ink. I came across it the other day and instantly fell for the vibrant colors. The do tone down a bit when used, especially green and blue.
I just received them on Friday, so I haven't tried out much, but I think they can be used in many ways. On my swatch sheet below I put on a bit (less then a drop) of each color, then sponged and watercolored them on. For each of the techniques I use the tinyest bit, only what's on the outside if the dropper. You can also create mists with them, but I didn't want to mess with that right now.
The range of colors is quite nice. In addition to the colors I got (brights without shimmer) there are also black, brown and a darkish pink and a whole range of shimmer colors. If you want to check them out, here's the link: IZINK. There is also a video with ideas how to use them.
So, that's it for now, have a nice day
