a few of my card friends have shown some alcohol ink cards and this inspired me to get mine out again and play.
My stamp supplies:
Forgive me for not having pictures of the process, but it is impossible to make an alcohol ink background and take pictures while you doing it. I like to wet my paper with blending solution - or even better 99% isopropyl alcohol, which only costs a fraction of the blending solution. I drip alcohol ink on it and use my heat tool to move the ink around and dry it. I took a regular brush and flicked clear alcohol onto the card, which gives you those little light colored bubbles. I took the bloom stamps and heat embossed them. If you use Yupo paper you have to be real careful, because it warps easily. The "paper" I used is Grafix opaque white craft plastic - a present from my blogging friend Aileen Ryan from Colour and Sparkle. THANK YOU Aileen - that stuff is fantastic!!!!
I trimmed my craft plastic and added it to the card. The sentiment I simply stamped on a piece of scrap paper and added it with foam tape. Also added some sequins.
