I'm here today to play again with Alcohol Inks! and to remind everyone that there's still time to join in on the CAS Mix Up Challenge - Last day to link up is August 24th!
So for this card I used stamps, alcohol inks (AI) on Yupo paper, die cuts, sequins and embossing on the sentiment!
There are links to several You Tube Videos on ways to use AI's over on the CAS Mix Up blog - for this card I used this video for my technique:
Inlaid Die Cutting with Alcohol Inks by Catherine Pooler
Here's a close up of the lovely effect of the AI's on Yupo.
First I dabbed Butterscotch and Wild Plum AI's over a sheet of Yupo using a felt pad with the applicator handle. Then I added Alcohol Blending Solution to the felt and dabbed again to blend it better and to get these lovely bubbles!
I die cut a portion of the Dandelion Fluff in the circle and removed it from the circle. I die cut the full flower from black card and layered it inside the circle. I put tape on the back to hold the piece in.
I embossed the sentiment on a strip of card using Silver Pearl Embossing powder.
And I just had to use the negative of the die cut to make a 2nd card - where the circle is black and the inlaid die cut flower is the AI piece.
So please join us over at the CAS Mix Up Challenge and show us how you use Alcohol Inks!
(use of alcohol ink markers like Copics are allowed too!)
You'll find lots of DT inspiration, the rules of the challenge and Mr. Linky here. You have until 8/24!
