Hi there. This is the mid-month reminder post for CAS Mix Up August challenge – Alcohol Inks (AI).
And here’s my card.
I still don’t own any of the traditional AIs, so my AI comes from my Copic markers. The background was created using the acrylic block stamping technique. Copic markers in gradient colours were scribbled across an acrylic stamping block, then spritz with alcohol, and stamped onto a Wonky Stitched Rectangle die cut from Neenah solar white cardstock.
The flowers and sentiment were stamped with the MISTI using Memento black ink. A Copic Colorless Blender was then used to “remove” colour from parts of the flower that overlapped the background. Technically, the Colorless Blender pushes away colour and desaturates the area, making it appear like it’s removing colour. The flowers were then coloured with Copics.
A white gel pen was used to outline the sentiment to make it stand out more. With the stamps still in place in the MISTI, the flowers and sentiment were re-stamped with VersaMark and clear heat embossed. Clear shimmer on the flowers and a few clear sequins finished off the card. It was an easy make, so I made another colour version of it.
There is still time to get out those AIs and join the fun. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.
