Gingersnap Creations Visiting Artist 4

It's a sad but happy day at Gingersnap Creations as this is the last challenge; and of course it has to be the inimitable colour theme "Copper, Rust and Ginger".

My card is made up of these colours plus a fabulous vintage picture I found of Ginger Rogers, which I thought fitted perfectly.

Have you ever painted with alcohol inks? The rose background is a foiled piece of printed cardstock from the  DCWV Natural Stack, I wanted one of the flowers to stand out more so I used copper, ginger, pearl, raisin and butterscotch alcohol inks to create that metal effect. I also used the fabulous Graphic 45 Steampunk D├ębutante papers.

The two pictures show the rose in different lights. The first shows the foiling and on this one you can see the alcohol ink painting.

Go take a look at all the wonderful inspiration on the Gingersnaps blog and hopefully we will see you participate too.

Hope your week is going well. I finish school on Friday and can then say I am retired. Woo that will feel strange, but I am looking forward to having more time to experiment and create again.

Take care, next week I will be able to come and catch up with you all. My huge thanks to those of you who have stayed with me, I really appreciate your love and support.

For now.
