I was thinking, why reinvent the wheel? I had made a card similar to this one for a class I taught this past fall. I loved making it and it’s absolutely perfect for Easy Peasy!
Alcohol ink is always fun and easy to use, I find that I don’t use it as much as I’d like!
Card Measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
Silver Shimmer Paper 3 3/4 x 3 3/4
Glossy card stock 3 1/2 x 3 1/2
-apply Sail Boat Blue, Denim, Stonewashed, Cloudy Blue alcohol ink + blender solution with an alcohol ink applicator onto glossy card stock
-stamp Snowflake Blueprint stamp with Cobalt Archival Ink over top alcohol inked card stock
-emboss card base
-adhere layers together
Glossy card stock mostly comes in the 8 1/2 x 11 size, you can always apply alcohol ink to the entire piece and cut to size after. You can get 6 (3 1/2 x 3 1/2) pieces and use the leftover pieces for accents on the inside or in other projects. Fun and easy to do! I didn’t use any mixatives of the alcohol ink but silver or pearl would work well with these colours! (Never used alcohol ink? Just comment and I’ll whip up a tutorial for you 🙂 )
