Greeting Card Art with Smeared Ink and Altered Pages

I have a collection of cards for you today, most of them feature Smeared Ink's Criss Cross Corset from the Heavy Metal set of digital images.  Digital images are as easy to work with as the Altered Pages collage images!  Both can be resized however you want and colored or cut out to work on your project.   The corset image was fun to work with.  I paired it with various papers, embellishments, stamps and more found right here at Altered Pages.  I made most of these in October so there are some Halloween cards in this set. 

I've listed supplies for each card below.  Besides those listed, I also used StazOn black ink, Scor Tape and on some of the embellishments I used Tacky Glue.  You can find all of these supplies in the Tools section over at Altered Pages.

And here we go...

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
