Attention: Fans of the amazing Alcohol Ink Background Technique with Stampin’ Blends Markers… check this out… you can do this technique with Cardstock Vellum and Embossing Folders!!!!
WATCH THE VIDEO below for all the details!!!
The 5 embossing folders featured in my video tutorial today are: Dandelions, Magnolia, Evergreen Forest, Seashells, Bloom. Each embossing folder was embossed with Cardstock Vellum, then colored with Stampin’ Blends markers and spritzed with rubbing alcohol. They are AMAZING in person!
Above: Dandelion embossing folder #152953 and cardstock vellum with the Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Ink background technique!!
A good tip for all of these projects (except seashells): color and spray the focal image on the front, and color and spray the background on the back. This will keep the images from bleeding/spreading into each other!
Above & Below: Magnolia 3D embossing folder #149579 and cardstock vellum, with Alcohol Ink technique.
The artsy effect of this technique is really wonderful.. kind of like a really loose watercolor painting! Not super detailed, but enough to let the viewer know what the subject is!
I think this might be my favorite.. not sure… the Evergreen Forest embossing folder #153576 with vellum cardstock and Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Ink technique.
All of these Stampin’ Up! card making supplies are available in my online store. Simply click any of the product photos at the bottom of this post! Thank you for your order!
The Seashells embossing folder #154309 is the only one today that is not created on Vellum. I had lots of these Pearlescent paper seashell die cut pieces all ready to go and embossed, so I just tried out this technique on them and love the results!!!
Be sure to watch the video tutorial at the bottom of this post for all the instructions for todays cards!
I mounted the die cut seashells with Foam Adhesive and Dimensionals onto another Alcohol Ink background piece. For the instructions for the background, view this video.
I created these one afternoon while showing Tammy the alcohol ink technique. We each made cards with these embossing folders.. check out HER POST HERE!
Our 5th card idea today features the Bloom embossing folder and per the tip above in this post, the blue background is colored and spritzed on the back, but the flowers and leaves were done on the front. It keeps all the colors from bleeding together.
