Create your Own Paper with Alcohol Inks

Hello!
I am popping in to share a birthday card! I used my favorite mediums-alcohol inks and vellum.

I paper-pieced the alcohol-inked paper on vellum, then I assembled them accordingly. It did take some time to get the inking right; then putting it back took a while also.
But I did not mind it at all.

 Supplies: Bouquet Balloons ( <---you can see my two other cards as samples ) , Stitched Rectangles, TH Alcohol Inks, Wishing Wafer Die (Simon Says Stamp).
  The vellum paper really is quite fitting for the balloons!
Thanks for stopping by!

So pretty. That alchohol ink colored vellum is perfect for this die. Clever you to think of it.

Harriet said...

Love your card.....question: What adhesive did you use to glue the balloons into the balloon "frame"?

Virginia Lu said...

Hi Harriet, I used Muti Medium Glue with my handy dandy toothpick! It works beautifully!
