Beautiful Love Die and Alcohol Inks
by Marybeth Lopez
Hello and Happy February to you all! I have a new technique ( For Me) that I am using today. I recently learned about Alcohol Ink watching a video
by . Jennifer McGuire I highly recommend you visit her blog and the link I gave you to see how to do this. It was so new to me that I forgot to take pictures as I was making the papers.
All the dies I used are from Poppystamps : Whittle Mouse, Simple Thinking of You and the beautiful Seed Love Collage I layered the Love die twice for a bit more dimension.
Above and below is a picture of one of the papers I created using Alcohol inks, each one will be different, just play with it. I ended up adding alcohol to my glass work surface , I had lots of leftover ink on the glass . I turned my Yupo paper( the ink moves around on this paper) over and placed it on the drips from the first paper with ink, that's how I ended up with a very soft look to my card and no wasted inks.
If you are interested in learning please go to the pro.... Jennifer McGuire.... Linked for you above. It's way more fun that I thought but it is a bit messy.
I sure had fun making the background of this card and I love the added gold shimmer. Poppystamps dies toped this card oh so many choices to make, I wanted to keep the dies white so they would stand out on the inked paper.
Thank you for the visit today . I hope you have a crafty day my friends.
