Alcohol class part 3

Final card today from my alcohol ink class. This card was a happy accident as I didn’t like the image once I had stamped it so I wiped it off and noticed it’s left a resist image of the stamp.

This card uses the 9 square leaf stamp from Woodware. The background has been created using Yupo paper and alcohol inks in Terracotta, Ginger and Lettuce.

I dropped some of each of the alcohol ink onto the Yupo and then added some blending solution . You can leave it to try as it is or blend more using some felt . It drys very quickly and I then stamped in Archival Ink Coffee Bean.

Then I took some kitchen paper and wiped the ink off to reveal the pattern. Simply matted into some brown cardstock and a sentiment from John Lockwood Everyday Sentiment stamp set and die cut it with one of his tag dies.

Back tomorrow with one of Kerrys recent Christmas cards from her club


Alcohol ink part 2

Good evening, second of my alcohol ink cards today this time using Woodware Vellum instead of Glossy card. I used Aqua and Pool with some Blending Solution in a swiping motion. I used Nellie Snellen dot mask to create the background using some more blending solution on a foam pad .The mermaid is from Hunkydory and the little stamps and sentiment are included in the set . I added some Glamour Dust to her tail and body. The Black frame is made using Square nesting dies.

Hope you like it, back tomorrow with a card using Yupo paper.


Alcohol Ink class part 1

My class last week used alcohol inks, it was lovely to go back to a product I have not used in years. There are some new colours coming out soon. The card I am posting today uses the inks the original way on glossy card and adding dots of glue to a felt pad on a rectangular Ranger blending tool. I used Pink Sherbet and Wild Plum along with some of the Silver Mixitive and a little Blending Solution. Unfortunately, it doesn’t show well in photo, but it makes a lovely marbled effect.

I cut out the coloured piece of glossy card using one of the new Creative Expressions Sue Wilson release called Sophia. The flowers are from John Next Door as is the sentiment.

Back tomorrow with another Alcohol ink card this time using vellum

Have a great Sunday
