Painting with Alcohol Inks

I’ve been having fun playing with alcohol inks and backgrounds and then I saw Jessica Frost -Ballas from All The Sparkle post where she had the most gorgeous flower painted with alcohol ink. Find her post and video tutorial here, it is awesome.

I started out stamping the magnolia on some Yupo paper in Versmark in and white heat embossing. FYI make sure your heat tool is very hot so that it melts the embossing powder quickly and limits warping of the Yupo paper. Then I took the alcohol inks in Wild Plum, Purple Twilight and Eggplant and added drops to the paper. I also added the same colors to a section of the Yupo paper and die cut the hello.

I then stamped the Woodgrain background on some Bristol Smooth paper in Versamark and heat embossed it in Watering Can powder. I then took some Antique Linen Distress ink and blended it into the paper to give it a more wood-like look. I added some purple sequins at the end for a little more interest.

I’ve also entered this in the Essentials by Ellen Mix it Up Challenge.
