Hi There,
Here follows part 2 of my obsession of creating Doodled Die Cuts projects
after learning this technique from Wendy Vecchi's online class.

Accordion sleeves with insert cards were so easy & fun to create.

Various tones achieved when working with kraft or white paper base.

Perfect decoration for a little handmade box below.

These images are of the backgrounds I created for these projects using Wendy's Archival ink reinker & rubbing alcohol technique.  Followed by a ghosting technique with stamps or stencils & alcohol to give more depth & interest.

I only have a limited range of Archival reinker colours but was amazed at the variety of blends that could be achieved.  Orange Blossom reinker was used in nearly all of these. I only combined two or three colours at a time. Orange Blossom, Aquamarine, Leaf or Fern Green. The darker moodier backgrounds were created with the addition of Ground Espresso & Hickory Smoke reinker.

This brighter, more opaque background was created with Aquamarine archival reinker in combination with Picked Raspberry & Fossilized Amber Distress oxide reinkers & Alcohol. I then applied the ghosting technique with rubbing alcohol & blending foam through a floral stencil over the top.

So many new varieties of flowers can be created. All depends on your imagination!

Wendy Vecchi's 'Lets Shop' bag dies make cute little pockets for gift cards or insert cards like I created below.

Kraft paper gives a much more subdued colour palette.
