I have an inky post over Altenew Card Blog.
Not only these Alcohol Ink Bundles are for the refills for the Artist Markers, they are excellent on their own with alcohol ink projects. If you are intimidated by Alcohol Ink, don't be. All you need to do is let loose and pour, dab and let the ink do the work for you.
Since the alcohol Inks are non-porous, you will need Alcohol Blending Solution and Alcohol Ink paper (such as Yupo Paper or photo paper) to maximize the inky effect. A blowing tool (such as a straw) will help to move the ink on the surface.
Let's start with that striking inky background. I took out Cool Night Alcohol Ink Bundle and Green Meadows Alcohol Ink Bundle to ink up the paper. As you can see, the teal, green and blue make such a beautiful color combo. You can also use other color combos such as Lapis Lazuli Alcohol Ink Bundle and Water Garden Alcohol Ink Bundle.
Top Tip: How to add shine to your die cut image
For the leafy images, I used Flowing Foliage Die Set with Gold Foil 1 inch Washi Tape. Want to add some sparkle to the dies? Simply apply the gold Washi Tape to the desired spot where you die cut. Carefully position the dies over the Washi Tape-covered white cardstock. Next, proceed to make the die cut as usual with Mini Blossom Die Cut Machine and you will get the sparkle leafy/floral designs instantly!
Instead of the usual black, I stamped Bold Sentiment Stamp Set in Lagoon Crisp Dye Ink . I kind of like this matchy matchy look! To elevate this card, I added Gold Metallic Thread and Satin White Sequins. The inky inspiration is not over here.
Please stoop by Altenew Card Blog and leave me your feedback there. Much appreciated!
Awesome colors! Love the set of dies you used!
What a cool idea to add the gold Washi tape on parts of the leaves. It is a perfect way to add sparkle to a card. Love the blue and green alcohol inked background and other sparkly touches.
what an incredible background to showcase the gorgeous white and gold leaves.
Beautiful card. And what a clever idea! I love the gold on the foliage.
Fab colour combo and I like the way you used the gold on the die cuts. Hugz
