Alcohol Inked Greetings

Hello, crafty friends! Hope you’re all doing well. It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of greeting cards I colored using alcohol ink. Over the long Easter weekend I pulled out my alcohol inks again and played with them πŸ™‚ .

My first card is featuring the Bright Peony stamp set from our April Release. It’s a gorgeous huge flower. Of course I couldn’t resist to color this peony with my alcohol ink πŸ™‚ .

I started off applying Shell Pink and Flamingo alcohol ink with lots of rubbing alcohol on an alcohol ink cardstock to make a soft pink panel. After the panel was dry I heat embossed the Bright Peony in silver on it. I then started coloring the peony. I dropped Raspberry, Flamingo and Shell Pink alcohol ink on the petals and moved the ink by tilting the panel. I used Slate alcohol ink for the leaves. I splattered silver Mixative on the panel and let it dry.

Actually I wanted to use the whole panel. But I didn’t like the pink background, so I decided to cut the flower off from the panel. Instead I created an extra background. I silver heat embossed the Geometric Lattice cling background on a white cardstock panel and ink blended Hollywood Star on the four corners of the panel.

I mounted the background panel on a pink cardbase and foam mounted the peony on it.

The sentiment was cut using the Love and Hugs word plate die . I cut “hugs” three times from some white cardstock and once from Adhesive Glitter paper Glossy fine Silver.Β  I stacked them all together and added it to the card. I finished off the card with some silver and clear sequins from New Year Couture Mix.

For the second card I used the Confetti Balloons stamp set.

I started off by creating the alcohol inked background panel. I applied rubbing alcohol and a few drops of Flamingo, Raspberry and Pool alcohol ink on a YUPO panel and moved and dried the ink using a blower.

I white heat embossed the outline and the star confetti pattern of the Confetti Balloons three times on a white cardstock. I then ink blended them in Hollywood Star, Cobalt Breeze and Grand Fuchsia. I fussy cut the balloons and set them aside. You can use the coordinating cut file to cut the image!

The sentiment is from Mega Confetti Numbers set. I stamped “HAPPY” in Grape Crush and the small sentiment in Grand Fuchsia on the background panel. The dye inks don’t dry easily on YUPO. So I sprinkled clear embossing powder on it and carefully heat set it.

I drew the strings for the balloons with a purple Sharpie pen on the background panel and foam mounted the balloons on it.

That’s it from me today! Hope you can find some time to craft!

Stay safe and healthy!
