I know we all love the wonderful backgrounds that Alcohol Inks make. But I wanted to try using them with a gel plate (and I didn’t have the special paper for the alcohol inks… so, ssshh!!) and it didn’t disappoint. The one thing that I noticed with the inks on the gel plate is that because it is highly pigmented, the inks were very intense. I used a mixture of the Azurite and Amethyst alcohol inks on paper as well as acetate (although I didn’t use it in this project). I also added some drops of the Sugarplums color family on paper that I will use to stamp leaves on.
I used the Mighty Alphabet to create the word Hello with three shades of cardstock. I chose leaves from the Blooming Bouquet stamp set and stamped them strategically over the dots and then die cut them. I placed the below and above the letters. The sentiment stamps is from Fresh Freesia stamp set, that I stamped with black onyx ink. Finally, I added some New Day enamel dots.
Here is the list for the blog hop:
Kinjal Trivedi –> you are here

For those new to my page, let me introduce myself. My name is Kinjal and I am popularly known as Mind My Paper, which is my social media handle. I started crafting after moving to the USA in 2015 after my marriage. I am originally from India, but have moved around a bit and I will keep moving around now with my hubby (next country calling soon). I have always been very creative and this was a perfect calling. I am still finding my style, but I am a sucker for a great color combo. I hope you like what you see and I would love it if you could give my page a follow. Thank you for spending time and I hope to keep all of you entertained!
