I couldn't get the transparency, cold laminate technique to work so I have improvised with my own cheat version. I will however have another go at this stained technique as it looks quite fun.
I have stamped my background paper with one of my most well used stamps. I applied the alchohol ink by using a piece of felt and wiped it on. I also had no luck with the create your own stamp pad with alcohol ink and a baby wipe - it was a total disaster!!!
I didn't have an appropriate sentiment stamp :-( worse luck...an excuse to go stamp shopping again. Instead I found a digital sentiment and modified the colouring in paint shop pro on the computer.
Then printed it out on vellum. Wait til dry, then place on a piece of white cardstock pre-dry brushed with perfect pearls pigment powder. Then the next step to keep it all in place stick cold laminate over the top. This seemed to give a nice professional finish. Then I layered all the other pieces and added the ribbon.
