Alcohol Ink Backgrounds & Otterly Fantastic

December 6, 2017



Hello!  Amy K. here with a card that starts off my Valentine's using the adorable new set called Otterly Fantastic.   

Otterly Fantastic

Since alcohol inks have "come back in style", I used them here to create a water backdrop for my otter.  I started my card off with a panel of Yupo paper from Ranger.  These inks work best with this type of paper.  To an applicator, I added a felt pad (different than what we use for ink blending) and added a few, random drops of Mermaid, Citrus, and Silver Mixative.  They really only need to be drops as the next step is to add a few drops of Alcohol Blending Solution to the felt pad.  To create my background, I used the applicator and simply placed it on the paper, twisted, and lifted off.  I repeated this for the entire panel.  After letting the panel dry, I used the Wonky Stitches Die to die cut the panel.

My otter was Copic colored with E42, E43, E44 and die cut with the coordinating Otterly Fantastic Elle-ments.  What I love is that there is a die that cuts the paws so that the otter can "hold" something!  In this case since this is for Valentine's, I used the heart stamp from the set.  Using Scalloped & Pierced Hearts Elle-ments, I die cut a red heart and white heat embossed the sentiment.  After adding the heart to the right side, I added the otter and a few extra hearts.  This panel was added to my alcohol ink background created earlier.

Don't be afraid of trying new things with the alchol inks.  I have even "messed up" and simply laid more color down over it.  Have fun creating some amazing backgrounds!

If someone in your family is hooked to alcohol and then you’re buying a good drinking treatment, then from the beginning itself, be sure to know very well what you ought to expect from the good alcohol consumption rehab. alcohol
