It's another grey day here, nothing much to cheer away the January blues. Still at least it's not icy or snowy!
I've been planning this card all week, every time I tried to make a background something went wrong, first the w/c paper soaked up too much water and then when I used another piece it was the wrong colour. So I changed tack and use a totally new technique that popped up on my Pinterest feed, using Alcohol ink, Yupo paper and cling film.
My good friend Loll got me interested in Yupo paper and I indulged just before Christmas but didn't have the opportunity to use it then. So although I don't have any alcohol inks, I do have Copics and refills and they are alcohol based, so decided to have a play. Not wishing to waste my expensive paper, I cut one into 1/2 then one in 1/2 again to give me a small panel which I coloured with a couple of dark Copics, BV09 and V09. I then added some V12 Various Ink along with some blending solution and quickly laid over some scrunched up cling film and left over night.
I was quite pleased with the end result, adding a couple of cut down scribbled hearts cut from sparkly silver card and a brand new sentiment from CASual Fridays in silver to complete.
