Ciao a tutti ! Spero abbiate tracorso una splendida settimana e siate pronti per una nuova sfida! Oggi l'argomento proposto da Simon Says stamp Monday Challenge Blog è Road Trip! Fatevi ispirare andando a vedere tutti gli splendidi lavori del nostro DT! Per la terza settimana è con noi Bonnie aka My Stuff My Life, QUI potrete ammirare le sue creazioni!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Thank you for joining us for the ‘Easter/Spring’ Challenge and we hope you will join in with us this week too!
This week we are challenging you to create something using the open roads as your inspiration,  Road Trip!
This is the third week for our Designer Spotlight: Bonnie aka My Stuff My Life, Here you can find her fabulous creations!

Da qualche tempo avevo voglia di divertirmi con gli Alcohol inks! Ho interpretato questa sfida in un modo un pochino più ampio! Ho pensato a viaggi galattici o intorno al mondo....
Per entrambe le card ho creato gli sfondi con Il cardstock Ranger lucido e vari Alcohol inks.

This week I wanted to have fun with the Alcohol inks! I saw so many  wonderful projects on Pinterest and so I took my "collection" of inks and I started! I interpreted this challenge in a way a little wider! I thought about galactic travel or around the world ....
For both cards I created the backgrounds with the glossy Ranger cardstock and various Alcohol inks.

Quello che vedete sopra è lo sfondo della prima card, per la seconda ho usato Terra Cotta, Latte, Espresso, Denim  e Cloudy Blue.
Ho timbrato con i set Sideshow e Dapper le due figure.... in viaggio! La prima direttamente sullo sfondo, la seconda su acetato  che ho in seguito incollato sopra al Miniglobe.
Eccovi i close ups!

What you see above is the background of the first card, for the second I used Terra Cotta, Latte, Espresso, Denim and Cloudy Blue.
I chose two stamps that I love very much from the Sideshow and Dapper sets. In the first card I stamped directly on the background with Versamark and white embossing powder, in the second I stamped on acetate, then I cut and glued it over the Miniglobe.
Here are the close ups!

Ho usato il set Ornate trims per creare le cornici su entrambe le cards, credo di avrvelo già detto ma è un set assolutamente indispensabile!

I used Tim Holtz  Ornate trims set to create the frames on both cards, I think I have already said it but it is an absolutely essential set!

Le card sono molto semplici, tutto il lavoro è nello sfondo , con gli Alcohol inks si ottengono effetti straordinari e credo sia giusto valorizzare questa parte del progetto, in questi casi!

Both cards are very simple, all the work is in the backgrounds, with the Alcohol inks you get extraordinary effects and I think it is right to enhance this part of the project, in these cases!

OMG! I really do not know what to say! Those backgrounds are absolutely fabulous! The mix of colors and the way you blended them is perfect! I am thinking about alcohol inks for some time but still don't have any. I guess your post is the game changer one. I need to start my inks collection now. Your projects are amazing! Hugs, Marzena

Big trips? Around the world, definitely but outer space would be too scary for me. You were so very clever to use the die-cut globe behind the missing man's face--a perfect combination and very original. And your backgrounds are juicy and delicious and I admire the strong contrasts.
