Alcohol Pearl Inks & the May 2019 Card Kit
Hello, all! Kristina here with some inspiration from the May 2019 Card Kit! The kit it packed with fun Tim Holtz Alcohol Pearl Inks, so that’s what I decided to play with today.
Using the Yupo paper included in the kit, I created backgrounds using the pink and blue inks, plus the Alcohol Blending Solution. These backgrounds were so fun to make!
At one point, I smooshed my background onto the surface of my Easy Clean Mat and then picked up the ink on the surface with a second piece of Yupo paper. This applied a more diluted version of the inks and I was able to get paler, more muted colors than the original background. I’ll have to remember this technique in the future when I want softer colors!
I but the large sheets of Yupo paper in half and created two cards. For the first card, I used Alcohol Lift Ink to stamp the floral images from the card kit stamp set, Delicate Flowers (also available for purchase outside of the kit). I stamped them multiple times and wiped away the Lift Ink each time in order to reveal a “ghost like” stamping effect.
I finished that card off with a greeting from the stamp set white heat embossed on back card stock.
For my second card, I wanted to add the flowers from the Delicate Flowers stamp set, but this time I wanted the flowers popped up off the surface. So I stamped them and colored them with Copic markers.
The stamp set doesn’t have coordinating dies currently (if you want them, let Simon know in the comments!), so I hand cut the flowers out. I finished the card by adhering a white heat embossed sentiment to the bottom corner and then used foam tape to adhere the flowers.
Thanks for stopping by today! You can pick up the May 2019 Card Kit here, or subscribe to receive this kit and future kits!
I didn’t think the lift ink worked with the pearls glad that you showed this :)
The cards are lovely
Beautiful cards … and now I’m so much happier I ordered this kit!!
Great cards! Love the colours!
I really like the intense background with the alcohol resist flowers.
I almost missed this one! That would have been a shame! These are such beautiful cards and so different from anything I would have ever thought to do!
Stunning cards Kristina, those colourful backgrounds with the gorgeous flower stamps set, great!
Althoug I love bright colours, I also loved the beautiful second generation backgrounds you made, curious what you will do with them.
Thank you for showing and have a great Easter weekend.
