This was one of those challenges that I had the card idea in my head, but it just wasn't translating well onto my cardstock...or Yupo paper to be exact! I was using two shades of green and a purple for my Alcohol inks and when the purple touched the greens, it was turning a muddy brown...yuck! I did manage to use one that looked ok, but the card I liked the best was when I decided to use Bonnie's technique (found HERE) that she's calling an alcohol wrap. I cut open a cellophane bag and added a few drops of my green and purple alcohol inks, smooshed my Yupo paper in it, and then added a scrunched up piece of plastic wrap on top and left it to dry. I loved the look and came up with this card:
A closer up view so you can see a little more of the detail in the background...fun technique and so cool looking! Love it!! (Thanks Bonnie!!)
And here is the first card I made where I just dropped the alcohol ink onto the Yupo paper:
There's still lots of time to play in this challenge, so check out all the beautiful inspiration from Loll and Bonnie and the DT, and then play along. You can find it all right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
