Leaf and Piñata Inks

This is the 3rd of a series of 4 PDF-format tutorials giving instructions for creating polymer clay tiles using 5 different surface techniques using rubber stamps.
Whenever you use alcohol inks you are guaranteed to produce something with a striking and intense colour. Pair the inks with silver leaf and the effect is intensified. The tiles I made using this technique seem to have a wonderful inner glow.
A tile consists of 3 layers – the decorative 1st layer and the back layers 2 and 3, which provide the channel for the cording. The tutorial contains 2 parts, - the first is "The Basics" portion which details the tile construction portion (layers 2 & 3) as well as extra's such as "Creating a trim", "Creating an Inverse texture sheet" and "Sample Tile Templates". The second part covers the surface technique (layer 1).
