Alcohol Ink Background Technique With DT Marine

Hey there,

This is Marine from DT! I hope you had a beautiful Christmas! Today I'm here to share with you a card that is pretty different compared to my other projects. It was my first time using liquid pigment inks with alcohol, but getting messy with these supplies was so fun!

When I saw the result after drying, the background immediately reminds me of paintings from Monet (without pretension, of course ^^) so I decided to add flowers to kind of match one of his fabulous creations.

So I first started by spraying alcohol on glossy paper (the kind of paper we use to print photos on), next I applied different colors of liquid pigment inks, sprayed a lot of alcohol again on top and moved the paper to mixed the colors together.

Did this process two or three times to get a good coverage and until I was happy with the result. Let  the panel dry overnight.

I took all the flower and leaf dies I have from CDD and die cut a bunch from bristol smooth cardstock. Colored them with my zig markers trying not to be too heavy to get kind of a soft and pastel look.

I heat embossed my sentiment using versamark ink and gold embossing powder, attached the panel to a white card base and finally glued all the die cuts on the panel using glue dots and liquid glue, trying to get a nice harmony.


I hope you'll like this card. Have a beautiful day, and see you soon on the blog!
