Fun with lift ink and a journal (by Rachel)

Hello there! Rachel here with some more inspirtion for you from the shows in October. This time I have chosen to share my sample I made using alcohol ink and lift ink..I really enjoyed making this one as I love the concept of stamping in alcohol ink. And I really like the ghosting effect. 

Secondly I wanted to share a journal I created and decorated using the Harebell Butterfly stamp set. 

This is the back of the journal where I did some repeat stamping and colouring with pencils.

This is another part of the journal where I added some more stamps from this set ...

This is the journal front cover all stamped and coloured...

I even added some stamping to the front of the signatures too. This was a watercolour signature I think! 

I hope this has given you more food for thought of ways to use your stamps!

Big hugs
