Leafy Leaves – SSS Peace on Earth

Hi crafty friends , today I am sharing a very quick card I had put together using the gorgeous new stamp set from Simon Says Stamps new release Peace on Earth. I had posted this card on Instagram but I unfortuately never took pics of my process. I had received quite a few dm’s on a how to for the card so redid the step by step but the final card at the end of the post is the orignal card. Hope you don’t mind. 🙂

I start with heavystock Yupo paper. I used both TH air blower and a mini air compressor to move the ink . I have added a link for the mini air compressor that I had purchased from Amazon. I layered down some 91% isopropyl alchohol and dropped a mix of alchohol inks in the supply list below and started blending with the air compressor.

My favorite alloy is Foundry. Remember a little goes along way. 🙂

I put a piece of sticky grid onto my stamping platform and put the alchohol panel in place. Using the alchohol lift ink I started lifting off the Leafy leaves pattern. After each time I dabbed off the panel and I continued the same process until I could see the image really well.

Using my splatter brush and isopropyl achohol I created a few spots on to the panel.

Now for the fun part. I went over the panel using distress archival black soot ink. This is where the regular size ink pads really came in handy. I did stamp this about 3 times . Set it asided to completely dry.

To finish up the card I cut it down to 5 X 5 1/4 and put some black cardstock behind it. I did distress the edges of the black cardstock using the distress tool, you can also use the edge of scissors. Popped up on fun foam and 110lb neenah cardbase. The final touch , I added some beautiful rainbow sequins. Hope you like my process.
