A while back, I created a ton of alcohol inked backgrounds. I’m gradually starting to create cards with those panels and today I have a very simple card, yet striking. Alcohol Inked Feathers!!!!
It probably took me more time to tie that bow than it did to create this card (I STINK at bow tying, lol)……. I remember back in the day buying all these bow tying gadgets only to get rid of them all. There is nothing I can do about my lack of skill in tying a bow. Ha.
I like to create many alcohol inked backgrounds at one time, and file them away. Then when I need to make a quick card, I have tons of backgrounds to choose from. My favorite paper to use with alcohol inks is Yupo. I find it blends better and you can layer ink and mixatives nicely. With the alcohol ink cardstock, once you add a mixative, you are done… No more adding over the top.
I have an alcohol ink playlist on my youtube channel. I will be adding videos to this playlist as I create them throughout the series.
In Connecticut, we had, what I hope to be, our last snowstorm. Probably 2 feet this time… Of the heavy stuff… But, it sure is pretty to look at. Follow me on instagram for photos.
Thanks so much for popping by today! :):):)
