Alcohol Ink Coloring – Sweet Bouquet

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having a great week so far! It’s TaeEun here today with a floral card featuring Sweet Bouquet stamp set. As you may know, I love coloring flowers.  The beautiful floral stamps by The Ton are super to color, as they have oft large flower images in the cluster.

For today’s post I colored the floral cluster from Sweet Bouquet stamp set using alcohol ink.

I stamped the image on an alcohol ink cardstock panel in a light ink to created the background. The stamped image worked as a guide for me while I added alcohol inks on the panel. First I sprayed lots of rubbing alcohol on the panel and dropped Shell Pink and Aqua alcohol ink on it and blended them by blowing using a marker spritzer tool. I repeated the process till I was happy with the result.

After the background was dry I gold heat embossed the Sweet Bouquet on it. I then colored the image by dropping the ink and moving the panel. Small areas were colored using a micro applicator. I used Amethyst, Purple Twilight, Flamingo and Shell pink for the large flowers. Amethyst, Turquoise for the small flowers and Citrus and Limeade to color the leaves. After the colored panel was completely dry, I splattered lots of Gold Mixative on the whole panel and let it dry.

I cut the colored panel with a Double Stitched Rectangle die.  I chose a navy cardbase and foam mounted the colored panel slightly tilted on it and cut off the excessive parts over the sides. The sentiment was cut using Hello word die four times from the same navy cardstock I used for the cardbase. I gold heat embossed one of the word die cuts partially and stacked all four die cuts together.  I finished off the card with some Medallion Gold sequins.

Wishing you a crafty day!

Floral stamps from Fall 2019 Release

Hello crafty friends!  Hope your September is off to a great start! It’s TaeEun here today with a couple of floral cards I made using two beautiful floral stamp sets from our Fall Release: Sweet Bouquet and Dahlia Close Up 2. I used two different coloring mediums to make my cards: colored pencils and alcohol ink.

The first card is featuring the beautiful Sweet Bouquet .

I stamped the Sweet Bouquet image on a toned gray paper panel in a white pigment ink. I left the stamp in my MISTI to use it later after coloring. I colored the image using Prismacolor colored pencils. I prefer Prismacolor pencils to Polychromos, when I use colored paper. I used lots of white and bright colors to cover the gray paper.

After the coloring was completed, I stamped the bouquet again in an embossing ink and heat embossed the outline image in white. I cut the panel using a Double Stitched Rectangle die and mounted it flat on a white cardbase.

The sentiment from the same stamp set was white heat embossed on a strip of black cardstock and foam mounted onto the card. I finished off the card with a few clear Dew Drops.

For the second card for today I colored the gorgeous Dahlia Close Up 2 using alcohol inks.

TT 2 1-2 WM

To make this card I started off by stamping the image on an alcohol ink cardstock panel in a light ink. It helps me to choose the right color while I’m roughly adding alcohol inks to the panel. I dropped and blended Purple Twilight, Raspberry, Flamingo and Shell Pink where the large Dahlia flower is and added Slate to the area where the leaves are. I used rubbing alcohol to blend the inks.

After the panel was dry I silver heat embossed the image with the help of MISTI. I then started to add more colors onto the image. I used the same colors mentioned above and micro applicators to add darker shades on the petals and leaves.

After all the colors were dry I mounted the panel flat on a white cardbase. The sentiment was cut using Hugs word die from Glossy Fine Silver adhesive glitter paper and from some white cardstock. I stacked them together and adhered it on the card. The last finishing touch was some Glass Slippers Round Confetti sequins.

I was quite happy with the results 🙂 ! Hope you enjoyed looking my cards today!
