Thanks for stopping by to check out my card today!
One of my favorite design schemes for a card is to create an alcohol ink background and then create a focal element to pop up from the middle – and that’s what I did for today’s card!
Let’s get started!
Begin by creating your alcohol ink background. There are no rules for this part! I used alcohol ink glossy cardstock (different from Yupo paper), Blending Solution, Turquoise and Flamingo alcohol inks.
I applied the blending solution in a diagonal direction across my cardstock and then applied a few drops of both the Turquoise and Flamingo alcohol ink across the line of blending solution I’d applied. I then used a straw to blow the alcohol inks around, getting them to move and blend with each other. I purposefully chose colors that would look nice in the areas in which they overlapped, and that’s why you see that pretty purple in the bottom corner!
After the alcohol ink panel dried, I set it aside and stamped the main floral image from the Floral Wreath stamp set on to white cardstock. I fussy-cut the wreath out and then colored it with my copic markers. I chose the “thank you” sentiment and stamped that in the center of the wreath.
I applied foam tape on the back of the wreath and then applied that down to my alcohol ink panel before gluing that completed panel down to a cut and scored 4.25 x 5.5 inch card base.
That finishes up the card for today! I hope you’ll give this look a try, because it’s so easy to mass product!
Thanks for hanging out with me today, and happy crafting!
