Express Yourself Card with alcohol inks and #laviniastamps
My late night play continued into the middle of the night when I made this card. I dragged out my old alcohol inks, which have not seen the light of day for over a year and created the mottled background on Yupo Paper.
I generally use my stamping platform when I stamp and I did come across a problem with using Yupo paper as it moves around a lot. I even used a bit of tape and extra magnets, but the Yupo paper wouldn't let go of the stamp.
I did find a solution by mounting the Yupo Paper onto cardstock. With a firmer base, it behaved better. I was then able to stamp the Lavinia Stamps "Moon Pods" and the "Express Yourself" sentiment in StazOn "Iris" shade of ink.
Finally, I added colour using Distress Ink Pens and added Liquid Pearls in a shade of "White Opal" to the Moon Pods.
