Happy Friday everyone!! It’s Shari here with a Color Coordinates set that I think you’ll enjoy.
One of my favorite two colors together is purple and green, a combination I don’t use it often, but it’s always been a favorite. For this Color Coordinates I started with those two and added in a few more to complete the look.
I totally experimented with inks to create this background. At first, I wasn’t sure if it would work… but it did! I used Yupo with the inks and blended them together with a blending tool and my finger, then added spritzes of rubbing alcohol. Yupo is an interesting synthetic paper that let’s the ink sit on top of the surface. Alcohol breaks down the ink so it can flow… resulting in this amazing marble effect.
Once I had my background, I die cut the Tim Holtz Wildflowers from white cardstock and added them to the background. Then I die cut “Love” from a Tim Holtz silver Deco sheet which is set onto a strip of black cardstock with the white embossed “You”.
I’m so glad I filmed this technique as I was experimenting so I could share it with you. You can watch the full process video below or on our YouTube channel HERE.
