More Alcohol Ink Backgrounds...

Hi my friends, not the catchiest of blog post titles but I'm back to share another 2 cards made using Alcohol Ink backgrounds inspired by Tim Holtz Facebook Live Q+A Demo and using Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flower Shop and Simon Says Stamp CZ Designs Extra Large Thank You die.

I began by dripping Rubbing Alcohol on to a 5" x 7" panel of Tim Holtz White Yupo, added drops of Mushroom and Black Alcohol inks and moved the inks around with the Distress Air Blower. I added Gilded Alloy Alcohol Ink and Blending Solution to an Alcohol Ink Applicator Tool, pounced on to the panel and used the Air Blower again to move it around until I was happy with the background.

I die-cut the sentiment twice from Distress Watercolor card using Simon Says Stamp CZ Designs Extra Large Thank You die and layered to create dimension. I inked the leaf image from Simon Says Stamp Stronger Together stamp set with Black Soot Distress Archival ink and stamped randomly on the top and bottom.

I trimmed the panel to 5.1/4" x 5.3/4" and matted on to a 5.1/2" x "6" SSS Ultra White card blank covered with Idea-ology BlackOut cardstock.

I created the background on the second card using the same method as the first card using Moss Alcohol Ink and Gilded Alloy Ink

I cleaned the sentiment image from Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Flower Shop with Ranger Archival Ink Cleaner, inked with Alcohol Lift-Ink, patted with kitchen towel to remove the ink and buffed with a dry cloth. I cleaned the stamp again, repositioned and stamped twice more to fill the background.

I stamped the floral image from Flower Shop inked with Black Soot Distress Archival Ink on to the panel 
and stamped again on to SSS Vellum
I tore the vellum and fixed to the panel with dots of Distress Collage Medium Matte. I die-cut You from Distress Watercolor card 3 times and layered to create dimension. I inked the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Jumbo Stripes with Versamark ink, sprinkled with Ranger Superfine White Embossing Powder, stamped on to a scrap of Idea-ology BlackOut cardstock, heat embossed, trimmed and fixed to the panel with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive.


I trimmed the panel to 3.3/4" x 5.3/4" and matted on to SSS Ultra White card blank covered with Idea-ology BlackOut cardstock
Have a great weekend whatever you have planned, I'll be back on garden fence painting duties, if the weather allows. Stay Safe and Keep Well.
