I have seen many projects using the alcohol ink technique that I decided to join the trend and made today’s card with this technique.
I chose Rich Raspberry, Daffodil Delight, Balmy Blue and Magenta Madness Stampin’ Blends for the colors. Didn’t know how it would turn out but am pleased with the result. What do you think?
The card base is Basic Black with a mat of Basic Black embossed with the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder. I cut a Daffodil Delight frame using the Stitched Rectangle dies and trimmed the focal piece to fit behind the frame. I die cut the branch image from the Meadow dies and adhered it to the focal image. I stamped the sentiment with Versamark and embossed it with White embossing powder and set it with the Heat Tool. The sentiment and die cut is from the Art Gallery Bundle.
The alcohol ink technique uses Stampin’ Blends that you scribble onto a piece of Vellum. After covering the sheet, you can apply the 99% alcohol with a paint brush, a spritzer or a Water Painter. Depending on what tool you use, it gives a different appearance when the ink dries. For my sample, I used an old paint brush and dabbed the alcohol all over the scribbles. The ink will spread and as it is alcohol, it dries very quickly. I then trimmed it down to the size I needed for the card. I squeezed Multipurpose Liquid Glue onto my Silicone Craft Pad and then applied it on the back of the Vellum using a Stampin’ Sponge and then adhered it to a piece of Whisper White card stock, cut to the same size as the Vellum piece.
The focal piece is then adhered to the Daffodil Delight Stitched Rectangle frame and adhered to the card front.Product List
