CAS Mix Up August Alcohol Inks...Again!

Can you tell...I LOVE Alcohol Ink Techniques?

Here is another card for our CAS Mix Up August Alcohol Inks Challenge.


Using Stamping, Alcohol Inks Dropped on Yupo and Inlaid Die Cut!

Background Sample of Ranger Alcohol Inks dropped on Yupo for my Die Cut Background.

My card is for a very special friend whose darling daughter has been ill.  With much support from family and friends she should recover completely:-)  I love this quote for difficult times in our lives.

I used Loll's (Stamping with Loll) Alcohol Inks with Yupo 5:48 You Tube video for a wonderful example of dropping Alcohol Inks directly onto Yupo.  A few drops I blew lightly with a straw also. There is a smooshing of Alcohol Inks technique on the video also.

More from Loll...I borrowed her Simon Says Stamps "Stacked Hearts" Die Cut when we had our Retreat in May.  I inlaid the hearts negative and popped out all the hearts (boy, do I now have a nice stash of hearts).  Next tapped my Alcohol Ink background from my stash to show thru the open hearts.  I results were so beautiful.

Thank you Loll for being so generous with your supplies and especially your talents:-)

I framed my stamped SU sentiment with a piece of the background and popped up on card front.  I attached my card front to my card base using fun foam.

Enjoy and hope you get to play along with our wonderful DT and GD, Trina (My Crafting Closet). You have until the 24th to join in the fun.  Happy Stamping.  Hugs..

  4. The bright AI panel really shows through the heart apertures, Nancy. Love how you've used a straw on some of the alcohol ink drops to help them spread out. Love your card, my friend. I know it will be so appreciated by our friend. xx

  12. What a gorgeous card Nancy... I love that shine you get with the alcohol inks!
    You asked about my card ... I'm sorry I don't know what DOX is? All I can tell you is that I just use ordinary CS and thus not too much water or it will pill. It means that sometimes I can go over places again as it dries quickly.. I just use Gansai Tambi watercolours.

    1. Sorry about abbreviation. I thought it looked like you used Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks. Your Gansai Tambi watercolours turned out beautifully. TFS Hugs...

  13. Ha! Yes, I can tell you love alcohol inks! But what a magnificent obsession. I have way too much catching up to do before I start another obsession. I'm weakening, though. Gee, thanks, Nancy. I just love how your background looks peeking through the hearts. A very nice card for your friend. I hope her daughter is fully recovered soon. I have yet to use any of my AI backgrounds. Would you believe I haven't stamped a thing since our visit? Two days in the garden and one day for everything else. Today is Doggie Day. A little visiting first and then I'm off and running again!
