Hello and thanks for stopping by today! Ideas bloom in my imagination like dandelions in summer. One idea I have been fostering is to create with the wizard image to create special effects with glossy white paper. There are some reactions with rubbing alcohol and the glossy white paper that are remarkable and our wizard here is just the right icon for the image.
Special Effects with Glossy White Paper
I’m crafting with the Paper Players this week, for a fun sketch challenge. CLICK HERE to visit now.

Magical Day stamp set
It’s hard not to think of the character Galdalf when I look at the wizard stamp image. There is also Merlin to consider as well. Creating a mash up of all the wizard images to make an original looking image, I focused on the garments. The wizard is colored with Stampin’ Blends markers, in blues and grays that will give the look of felt. The hat is a bit different and worn looking so it carries more white. To really allow him to stand out as the focal point, I chose to fussy cut and outline the image in black marker.
Glossy White Paper + Rubbing Alcohol Technique
There are a few cardmaking techniques I relish, such as watching embossing powder melt and rubbing alcohol mix special effects with glossy white paper. The look is dramatic but does not lend itself to every project. However, for the wizard image, it’s perfection! There are three colors of ink worked into the background, purple, gray and yellow (in that order). And the splash from alcohol application is a real bonus. It’s almost magical, lol.
