CDD Alcohol Inks

Hello there!
It's Michelle here on the CDD blog sharing my technique with alcohol inks.
I have to admit, at first alcohol inks freaked me out!!!!! But I follow the lazy girl rule....let the alcohol blending solution do all the work!!!!
And by the way....it is soooooo much fun!!!!

Let's go step by step:
'Wishing You the Best' card
Start out with Yupo paper for alcohol inks ( I purchased mine at Michaels). 
I lay a piece of sticky clear contact on my surface, the kind you cover school books with.
Lay the piece of Yupo paper flat and add a few drops of alcohol ink than blending solution.
 First I added mermaid ink than blending solution. Allow it to spread.
 Next I added indigo ink than blending solution and allow to spread.
The last color I added is lettuce ink than added blending solution and allow to spread. Allow to dry for at least an hour. This panel is my card base.
Next, I inked up Yupo paper with mermaid ink and silver metallic mixative and blending solution. Allow to spread and dry.
I used the word die and cut this panel
I assembled the card using Fancy Frame Die and Flag Banner Dies. I used the stamp set Wishful Thoughts.
The metallic mixative adds such a beautiful shine!!!
*********************************
'All My Love' card...
For this car I used cranberry ink, mermaid ink and indigo ink followed by alcohol blending solution allowing it to spread and dry. Than I used the nested hearts dies to cut the heart. 
I used the stamp set Hugs and Kisses for the sentiment.
Please give this a try...you'll definitely love it!!!!!

Hope you enjoyed this post!!!!

CDD Sending Warm Wishes

Hello there!!!
Michelle here on the CDD blog with a one layer card tutorial.

 To begin, stamp the image onto your card and stamp the image a second time onto scrap to create your mask.
 Mask the lower part of the card with another piece of scrap so only the top half of the card is exposed for inking.
 After your happy with your inked background, remove the masks and color the image. First I colored the fur.
Than I colored the clothing and mug.
Lastly, I stamped the sentiment and masked the face. Than I added some splats of white paint. I love this effect!!!
Isn't this polar bear the cutest thing ever!!!
I hope you give this a try!!! One layer cards are so much fun!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
