Alcohol Ink and Burlap (and several more samples)

Alcohol Ink and Burlap (and several more samples)


I thought it would be fun for my students (and me!) to play with alcohol inks in one of the classes I am teaching, and here is a sample I created.

The ink really goes a long way once you get your foam applicator loaded up, so I just kept going and was able to make several panels at that time.  (That’s why all these cards are similar in color.)  I used Ranger Glossy Card Stock along with Ranger alcohol inks (Caramel, Latte, Ginger, Currant, Sunshine Yellow, Sunset Orange, and Gold Mixative) and Alcohol Ink Blending Solution.

Here is a sample with a masked /stamped background panel and more leaves…


An oval die was used to create a mask for the sponged background (done with Vintage Photo Distress Ink) along with the Stampin’ Up French Script background stamp and Memento Rich Cocoa ink.

…and a few more samples.  (When I said I kept going, I meant I kept going.  Yeah, it’s a lot of brown – lol!!)




(I didn’t use any of the gold mixative on this last one, but I wish I had.)

I have two (brown!) holiday samples I will share in a separate post.

The large leaves were cut with the Tim Holtz Bigz Tattered Leaves die from Sizzix.  The smaller dies were made with Recollection punches.   Leaf Vignette Squares are by Frantic Stampers .  Your Day from Penny Black is a “fun” birthday greeting die, and the Making Happy Happen Collection – Happy Phrases by Sizzix has a variety of greetings and shapes.  The stitched frame was unbranded.  Card stock used was Recollections Cream and Kraft and Gina K Dark Chocolate and Tranquil Teal.  The patterned paper was  “Tim Coffey Fall Gold Leaf Scroll” by K&Company, and the burlap was “DCWV Burlap Paper – burlap covered cardstock sheets

Thanks for checking out my card projects!
