This week's Spotlight challenge at Crafty Cardmakers is to use alcohol inks on your project.
I have combined last weeks Clean & Simple theme and the Alcohol Inks from this week for my DT card. I used the alcohol inks on memory glass (why is it called memory glass - anyone know?) and stamped my owls on top using Jet Black Archival Ink. I attached the glass to white card using Glossy Accents then layered the white onto green card, the little gems are hiding the spots left by the Glossy Accents! I then cut a strip of the green card and punched a border with a Stampin Up punch and layered some ribbon on top. The backing paper is Bloom & Grow by MME and the little sentiment is from Studio G.
"memory glass...because crafter's were creating memories by using the glass to make ornaments and loved one's pics with some art! they started out using microscope slides like 1" x 3", enclosing two pieces with metal tape, etc. then the idea grew to different size glass pieces."
Thanks so much for the info Joanne!
