Soot Technique on Gloss Card

A n old technique from a recent class with Kelsey - quite simple and once again using alcohol inks dabbed onto a white gloss card as the first step. Then cover the card with soot from a candle flame by actually passing it throught the flame just quick enough not to burn it but to leave a layer of black soot. Stamp your image onto the soot surface very carefully trying not to touch the surface with your hand or moving the stamp. An amazing surprise when you lift the stamp if you are lucky and finally a quick spray of fixative to secure your image. Loads of quick easy Fun. 

The title was cut from exactly the same stamped image but this time on a red gloss card and no alcohol inks were required. So exactly the same image is used on the top as below and the word 'Dream' was then embossed on top in Gold.

Here is a whole image stamped on red gloss card only, but it dosent photograph so well with the shiny surface unfortunatly.

And finally here one with the original technique used in the beginning with White Gloss Card and Alcohol Ink as a background before placing the soot on the surface and Stamping. All these stamps are from Cherry Pie Stamps.
