Fig.14 flog fort / Fig.14 flew away

Ich musste meine ersten Alcohol Inks unbedingt gleich ausprobieren!!


I just had to try my new alcohol inks immediately!!

As I was really surprised by the "real" rusty look, I decided to sand the edges of the card as you would do with real metal. 

I used Ranger alcohol inks "Rust"- Earthtones, "Sunset Orange" - Brights and "Juniper" - Lights. The stamps are from the Artemio stamp sheet "Bugs" and the 7 Gypsies "Conservatory" stamp sheet.


  1. Wow, Amelie, this is just glorious - amazing effect with the stamped and shadowed images. I'm still debating my first alcohol ink purchase, and this certainly inspires me to go ahead.

    1. Thank you very much, Alison!!!

      This was my first purchase too and - like you - I was not quite convinced in the beginning. I also tried to get colours that were closest to the impression of rust and I am happy I quite got there regarding the result. And it is real fun turning simple glossy cardstock or something alike into a colourful rusty peace!!!

      Hugs, die amelie

  2. Wie genial - die Karte ist der absolute Hit.

    1. Freut mich, dass sie dir so gut gefällt, Silvia!!!! Danke!

      LG, die amelie
