Susan here on the blog today. I have a card to share that turned out well despite a few – well several – crafty mishaps. I knew I wanted to use the large Botan Peony with either the alcohol ink lift off technique or embossing. Feeling adventurous – that should have been my first clue – I went with the alcohol ink lift off technique on glossy card stock. I used my Copic Various Refills instead of alcohol inks as I had a wider color range to use. They both work the same on glossy card stock or Yupo. I used V04, RV11, RV63, RV66, R56 and RV69. You could use any color combinations.
I have video to show you what I did and also how I fixed my crafty mistakes.
Ultimately I had too much alcohol ink in the upper left corner. This left a very sticky area perfect for foiling but not the lift off technique! I should have used more alcohol ink blending solution and I should have left it to dry over night. However, I only had a small window of time in which to make the card, film and edit the video and take pictures. Sounds glamorous – not – lots of fun but lots of work. I am so glad though that I made this card though as I persevered through the worst. I find vellum and heat embossing work to hide a plethora of problems so that final layer is heat embossed vellum! Works every time!
Thank you for being here with me today! Have a great weekend!
