Maduzia Magic-with a twist.... I have no reinkers...... so I used Shades Die inks- wiped them across a piece of acetate and picked up the ink off of the acetate with a cotton ball- added the alcohol- what do you think? I also had to add sewing on my card- that is my all time favorite thing to do to add a great look and some dimension to my cards.
The first step is to stamp and emboss the image- I embossed the Just for You sentiment multiple times and it covers the back of the entire page. After the embossing was done, I swiped the ink onto the acetate, added the alcohol and then the ink to a cotton ball and dabbed it on glossy white cardstock. I made an addition sheet out of just the Orchid, and used that for the corner flourishes.
Margery in Platinum EP and watercolored the image with the Shades die ink. I added color to the edges of the card as well and to the edge of the die cut for dimension. I did not have any lighter purple cardstock that was just right, so cut a piece of watercolor paper and highlighted the edge of it with purple watercoloring.
I used Coordinations cardstock for the base. If you look at the Coordinations cardstock page HERE- you will find that the store has listed the ink colors that coordinate with the cardstock family-see the colors when you click on the cardstock colors.
I used Platinum Embossing Powder for a touch of glitz for the card front- here is a better look:
