Good morning! Jess here with a bright and vibrant Christmas card using alcohol inks and a beautiful scripty die from Simon Says Stamp!
I love using alcohol inks to create backgrounds and I thought they would make a pretty wintery night sky! I blended indigo, turquoise, and stream alcohol inks onto a piece of yupo paper with alcohol ink blending solution and an air puffer! I let it dry completely and then splattered it with white gouache to create the effect of snow!
While the background was drying I die-cut the sentiment from white cardstock twice and silver glitter cardstock once and layered them together with liquid adhesive. I also stamped the star using an ornament from Ornate Ornaments with versamark on white cardstock and heat-embossed it with silver tinsel embossing powder. I fussy cut it and cut off the ornament loop to create a star and adhered it to the background with foam mounting tape. Then I added the sentiment with liquid adhesive. I love the effect of the night sky but you could also use any alcohol ink colors to just create a colorful background for this or any holiday sentiment! 😉
Thanks for visiting and have a fantastic Friday!
