Hi, all! Kristina Werner here. Today I have a fun mixed media card for you. It combines alcohol inks with Distress Paint, plus some die cutting.
I started out by creating an alcohol ink background using Silver Sparkle Alcohol Cardstock, which made it beautiful all on its own. I used three colors of alcohol ink. I used Gumball, and Enchanted and Villainous which are pearlescent alcohol inks.
To add some detail, I experimented with Picket Fence Distress Paint and the Peonies and Leaves stencil. At first, I tried to create a monoprint, but I didn’t have enough paint on the stencil. Then I decided to apply the paint over the stencil like usual.
To my surprise, the effect was beautiful! The white paint dries back quite a bit (as you can see in the photos), and the colorful background shines through. I was pleasantly surprised with the results.
I hope you enjoy the video and it inspires you to mix some different mediums on your cards! I’ve never mixed alochol inks and paint before so this was fun! Enjoy!
