Trying out a new surface; ending with a love card!
Hi friends! Happy Sunday! Please join me in welcoming back special guest Cheiron Brandon to our blog with this super fun and pretty love card design! Did you catch the NEW Clear Alcohol Ink Dura Lar surface released last month from Tim Holtz and Ranger? In this post Cheiron is sharing cool tips and tricks to use it! Read on and enjoy!
Hi there crafty friends, it’s Cheiron Brandon here and I am thrilled to be sharing a post with you today with a card combining Tim Holtz Alcohol Inks and the new Clear Alcohol Ink Dura Lar surface to create a fun and simple Valentine card. These would be super easy to recreate an entire set of to mail to all of your crafty friends.
To create this card, I cut my Dura Lar to 4 X 5 ¼ then applied Alcohol Inks in Fiesta, Gumball, Watermelon and Pink Sherbet and moved them around the panel with the Ink Air Blower. I made sure to leave some small areas of the Dura Lar clear so the clear surface would stand out on my finished card. Then I dried the panel with a heat tool.
Next, I stamped the hearts from the Watercolor stamp set along with a sentiment from the Noteworthy set using Distress Archival Ink in Black Soot on a piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock measuring 4 X 5 1/4. Once both of the panels were dry, I stitched them together.
To complete the card, I adhered the inked panel to an A2 size card. I hope you enjoyed this fun idea for using Dura Lar with Alcohol Inks on your cards, I can’t wait to try it with other color combos!
Thanks so much for stopping by, and thanks to Cheiron for being our guest!
