Blog Blitz Alcohol Inked Greenhouse
by Nancy Penir


Hi everyone! Are you ready for a Spring Blog Blitz? Lots of new stamps and dies, and plenty of fun techniques from the designers.

Today I have the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame & Stencil to show you. And I've done a card with all alcohol inks die cuts. 


Alcohol Inks are a fantastic way to add pizzaz to your project. They react with Yupo paper, a shiny surfaced paper, and blending solution to get a wildly colorful, rather agate like pattern, fun result. Here's one way to play with them. First I squirted my blending solution on my yupo paper. Notice it gets messy so protect your surface. Gloves are optional. 


Next up I added my colors. No rhyme or reason, for this technique just go for it. 


I then sandwiched a clean piece of yupo paper over my saturated sheet, in a schmooched way, pressing without moving either sheet. The result is a magical blend of wild color!


Ok, friends, this was way too much fun! As you can see, I played with all color combos. And here's what I did with them:


A birthday card for someone who loves potted and potting plants! Now there's a stencil that is included with this die. I can't wait to use it too.
