Alcohol ink on Vellum

I tried a newer technique this weekend. The featured stamper on Splitcoast Stampers is Lisa Curcio who I learn a lot from. She shares several videos a month, blog posts, and special cards for newsletter subscribers. I was thrilled to select a card to CASE.

I linked the blog post that shows the video used for the card that I CASED. My card uses a die from My Favorite Things. I think it might be called Contemporary Rose. I stacked it two times. I used Spectrum Noir markers and 99% alcohol to create the background. I placed the alcohol in a small spritz bottle; I have never done that before. It really made the alcohol ink move a bit. My vellum is thin from Hobby Lobby. My paper is Spectrum Noir white cardstock. I chose a simple Hello greeting from the mini set Rose Bouquet from Gina K Designs.

I had fun creating this card. I made two pieces of alcohol inked vellum, so will use the other one hopefully soon.

    1. Thanks! Looks totally different with the spritz bottle rather than a cotton ball. I used cotton the last time I tried this technique.

  1. Love your background and the die cut outline. I will have to check out this video, too. Thanks for sharing.

    1. She has so many great videos, it can be hard to choose. I enjoyed this one. I have the alcohol but never tried it in a spritz bottle before, it was like those pigment sprays, I guess as it really sent the marker ink to move and blend. Have fun!

  2. Lisa, this is beautiful! Great job on getting the ink to look beautiful and on your die cut. The die is so intricate, and you got it out beautifully. Your inked panel is so beautiful behind the white die cut.

    1. Thank you! Yes, that intricate die was being a bit difficult. I must have used thinner paper the last time I used it. I will use it again as it is very pretty when cut.

  3. Wow this background is stunning. Using the intricate die on top really makes the card pop. I know what you mean about cutting with intricate dies, I have one that is really challenging. Its a lovely design and a great CASE.
