The other day I played around with my Alcohol Inks using the scrunched Plastic Wrap technique. I used Karen (Snippets) technique. Be sure and click on her Snippets blog link to see the Gorgeous heart she made using much different colors.
I just added drops of Alcohol inks: Tim Holtz Flamingo, Watermelon and Pink Sherbet to my Yupo paper, spritzed with blending solution and covered with Glad Wrap. Then scrunched up the Glad Wrap and let sit over night to dry. Then die cut the smaller heart. For the larger heart I used a background with the same AI's but added more blending solution, which really lightened up the background and then added the Glad Wrap, but did not scrunch it up. This gave a pretty and more subtle texture to the background. I then die cut the larger heart.
I die cut the card front, popped up with foam tape and inlaid the hearts.
Next..I used my Zig watercolor markers to make stripes across a scrap piece of Whisper White CS using colors close to my AI colors and I then die cut the hugs and punched out the heart from the piece.
I added my hugs using my fine tip glue pen, added my heart with a dimensional and a rhinestone to the hearts for the final touch. This was a fun and easy Valentine.
