Magnolias – Alcohol Ink Coloring – Video

Hello, everyone! It’s TaeEun here today sharing a floral card colored using alcohol ink with you. Did you enjoy our Fall Release last week ? Aren’t the new stamp sets awesome? I love them all, but the floral sets including one of my favorite flowers, magnolias have stolen my heart.

For today’s post I’ve created a CAS one layer card using Magnificent Magnolias. The large floral images of this set are great for alcohol ink coloring.

I started off by silver heat embossing the magnolias on a glossy cardstock. I then colored the magnolias by dripping the alcohol inks on the image. I tilted the paper to move the inks to the direction I wanted. I used Flamingo and Shell Pink for the flowers, and Limeade and Hazelnut for the stems. To create the soft background I applied the rubbing alcohol first and then added Aqua and Pool alcohol ink drops on it and moved the inks to the area I wanted to color. After the panel was completely dry, I stamped the sentiment ‘Many Thanks’ from Large Florals: Carnation in black archival ink and silver heat embossed the small sentiment from Occasion Confetti. I mounted the panel on my light blue cardbase and scattered some Glass Slippers Round Confetti onto the card to finish it off.

As some of you wanted to see how I color using alcohol inks, I’ve filmed the coloring process. The most important part in this method is to control the amount of alcohol inks to stay inside of the embossed image, which is actually very hard. But there is no reason for discouraging yourself, as the alcohol inks are very forgiving as well. Hope you’ll enjoy my video and give this coloring technique a try!
