Hello and Happy Friday everyone!!! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of Holiday cards made with alcohol inked background and simply colored poinsettia cluster from Coming Up Poinsettias set.
They are easy to make if you have some alcohol inks or even Copic refills and glossy cardstock. I added interesting texture on the background using our new Background stamps.
I started by making two alcohol inked background panel using glossy cardtock and alcohol inks. Further below is a picture of them, if you want to take a look :).
The first card was created on a background panel made using Purple Twilight, Flamingo, Raspberry and Turquoise alcohol ink. I blended the alcohol ink drops with lots of rubbing alcohol to make the colors brighter. After the panel was dry I partially white heat embossed the Bare Tones background on it.
The poinsettia cluster from Coming Up Poinsettias was stamped in Plum Wine and clear heat embossed on a white cardstock. I cut it using the coordinating die and added simple shade on the image using Polychromos colored pencils.
The white frame was cut using two Double Stitched Rectangle dies and foam mounted on the background panel. I then added the poinsettia cluster. The sentiment is also from Coming Up Poinsettias set. I stamped it in Noir on a strip of clear acetate, adhered scotch tape on it to protect the ink and added it onto the card. I finished off the card by adding some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.
Here are the background panels I’ve made.
To create the red background panel I used Watermelon, Poppyfield, Valencia and Sunset Orange alcohol ink. I then gold heat embossed Diagonal Stripes background stamp on it. I did it on purpose before the panel was completely dry so that some embossing powder could stick on the wet alcohol ink splatters.
I narrowed down the background panel in a smaller size than A2 and adhered it flat on a red cardbasae.
The sentiment from Coming Up Poinsettias was stamped in Noir on a strip of clear acetate like the first card. I finished off the card by embellishing the center of poinsettias with some sequins from Garden at Dusk Couture Mix.
That’s it from me today! Hope you liked looking and reading my post 🙂 .
