Here are two more cards that were directly inspired from a youtube video found on Pinterest by Sue McRae using vellum and alcohol inks. Here’s the link if you wanna go take a peek at the fun, yet slightly messy technique.
To make these cards I used Adirondack Alcohol Inks in Wild Plum, Eggplant, and a small touch of Stream along with some blending solution. I then used two Hero Arts Stamps, Large Blossoms and Poppy Background cling stamps and embossed with white embossing powder.
The close-up of this first card is all three alcohol inks at their full strength with no blending solution added. I’m not sure why the ink color is bleeding through the embossing, but it is either because the embossing powder consists of rather large granules or the stamp didn’t have enough Versa Mark ink on it.
Here is a close-up of the second image. As you can see, the color is a lot lighter than the first image because I didn’t add any more ink to the applicator, just some of the blending solution. The color didn’t bleed through the embossing this time, again I’m not sure why.
Here are the finished cards. The first one includes the use of one of the Cuttlebug embossing folders from the Oriental Weave collection. I also added a small piece of the vellum to the inside of the card.
And here is the second card. This one looks a little plain to me but it is still pretty.
I’m curious which one you all like better? Let me know if the comments below!
