Alcohol Ink Background with DT Michelle

Hello there!
It's Michelle here on the CDD blog shareing my technique with alcohol inks.
I have to admit, at first alcohol inks freaked me out!!!!! But I follow the lazy girl rule....let the alcohol blending solution do all the work!!!!
And by the way....it is soooooo much fun!!!!

Let's go step by step:
'Wishing You the Best' card
Start out with Yupo paper for alcohol inks ( I purchased mine at Michaels). 
I lay a piece of sticky clear contact on my surface, the kind you cover school books with.
Lay the piece of Yupo paper flat and add a few drops of alcohol ink than blending solution.
 First I added mermaid ink than blending solution. Allow it to spread.
 Next I added indigo ink than blending solution and allow to spread.
The last color I added is lettuce ink than added blending solution and allow to spread. Allow to dry for at least an hour. This panel is my card base.
Next, I inked up Yupo paper with mermaid ink and silver metallic mixative and blending solution. Allow to spread and dry.
I used the word die and cut this panel
I assembled the card using Fancy Frame Die and Flag Banner Dies. I used the stamp set Wishful Thoughts.
The metallic mixative adds such a beautiful shine!!!
'All My Love' card...
For this car I used cranberry ink, mermaid ink and indigo ink followed by alcohol blending solution allowing it to spread and dry. Than I used the nested hearts dies to cut the heart. 
I used the stamp set Hugs and Kisses for the sentiment.
Please give this a try...you'll definitely love it!!!!!

Hope you enjoyed this post!!!!
