CARD

For my card I decided to do what I never did (or at least I don’t remember) – color the new beautiful flower with alcohol markers refills. I love working with alcohol markers, but never actually colored with them. And I should say it was a very fun experience.

Coloring With Alcohol Ink. Card by Svitlana Shayevich

As I working surface I chose a glossy side of an Alcohol Ink Cardstock (that has been laying in my stash FOR AGES). First I stamped the flower using Obsidian Pigment Ink. I let the ink sit a bit on a surface and then wiped it off with a paper towel. This ink didn’t dry completely on the coated glossy cardstock, after wiping off very faded, ghost if you will, stamping impression was left. And it was exactly what I needed – just a ghost stamping of an image to see where to color, but something that won’t be seen under a white embossing I did later.

Next I colored the flower using marker refills from the Warm and Cozy and Tropical Forest Sets. For coloring I was using my Alcohol Ink Tool Set, but I believe any not expensive synthetic brush will do (I would dedicate them for only using with alcohol inks tho).

I was coloring the way I’d color with liquid watercolors. I was squeezing some ink onto a glass mat and picking it up with a brush. If I needed “water” (to dilute ink or to re-wet one that was drying out) – I used alcohol blending solution.

After I finished coloring I white embossed the Anemone Stamp Set on top.

Then I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base. Followed by popping up a white embossed on a black strip sentiment on top.

Lastly I added several sequins to accentuate the card.

    Love you bright color palette. The dark sentiment strip is really eye catching with the orange/ yellow/ green tones. Great card to showcase the Anenome Paint-a-Flower!

      I can’t believe this was alcohol-colored in watercolor style. It’s beautiful and I’m so impressed how your retained the images while dealing with the alcohol flow. What a gorgeous rendering of the already fabulous anemone set. Thank you!

    Your color palette is so bright and cheery. I’ll have to try using glossy paper with the reinkers and then embossing on top.
