Alcohol Ink Backgrounds Technique with DT Jan

Hello there my Crafty Friends,

Merry Christmas to you all! Jan's here from handcrafthoby.  I am super happy to be back on Craftin Desert Divas' blog today sharing with you this little project I made for our December Mood Board Challenge with this week CDD blog new theme - Alcohol Ink Backgrounds technique.

Here is what I made for you.

Here is our December Mood Board Challenge.

You still have time to join us at CDD Facebook gallery to upload you projects to the folder.  And here is the link to CDD Facebook Gallery.  There will be prizes announcement at the 1st of January.  I hope you're playing along for some crafty fun and prizes.

Back to my project :)

I created this card using one of my alcohol ink backgrounds here to match the mood board colors theme together with Nested Heart dies, Fancy Frame dies, Tis The Season dies, Sending Sentiments stamp and Winter Bliss stamp.

Alcohol Ink Background technique has been around for long time and I have to admit that I was overwhelming with so many crafting techniques and keep on procrastinating to do this fun technique..
Well here is no more *lol*

And here is my YouTube Video sharing how I created these backgrounds with alcohol inks as well as copic various inks with rubbing alcohol on Yupo paper.

I hope you like it and I also have some pictures sharing here with my card project.

I used Fancy frame dies to cut from kraft card stock and trimmed my background panel to fit just slightly smaller than the stitching details from the die.  From vellum paper, I cut the Nested Heart dies and decorated the outer part with Nuvo Crystal Drops Simply White and the inner heart I heated embossed with white embossing powder.  The Ice skating shoes and the wreath images are from Winter Bliss stamp.

Underneath the heart shape die is Santa's sleigh dies from Tis The Season dies.  I colored all the pieces with copic markers and popped them up with form tape.

And here is overall look at the card one more time.

I do  hope you like it and Thank you for stopping by today.
