Embossed Bamboo Beauty and Blended Alcohol Technique

embossed  bamboo beauty and blended alcohol technique 1

 I'm having a lot of fun with the Bamboo Beauty stamp set also with the Blended Alcohol technique on vellum and decided to combine the two for my Monday Morning Live video tutorial and also for my June Newsletter Photo Tutorial. You can see the Monday Morning Facebook Live on my Playing With Papercrafting Facebook page at 11 am PDT or I will post the YouTube replay here some time later.


I will not be giving detailed instructions today because I will include those in the free step-by-step photo tutorial in my June newsletter. You can access that if you subscribe to my free monthly newsletter by getting on my email list. To do that scroll to the bottom of this page and enter your name and email in the correct field and click on Sign Up. You will be able to unsubscribe easily and I will not fill up your inbox with emails. I usually send only one, or at the most two emails a month.

Here are the features of today's card:

  • I've layered the card colours on the Evening Evergreen Base.
  • The blended alcohol technique is seen in the background of the gold embossed bamboo stalks. It is done on vellum cardstock with Stampin' Blends and 90%+ rubbing alcohol.
  • The stamping is done in two steps using the Stamparatus and Versamark ink.
  • The images are embossed in Gold.
All materials and measurements are included in the free photo tutorial in my June Newsletter.
