Hi everyone. Last week I posted two CAS Christmas cards made with alcohol inks on yupo paper. I made several pieces of smooshed AIs while I was at it, and today I'm sharing a few more cards using small snippets for the backgrounds.
Each card is made from an alcohol ink background done with red, magenta and gold. And each card uses white die-cuts to play off the bright colours of the backgrounds. The white die-cuts are cut from snippets too. :) The main difference between the cards is the layout.
Delicata Gold ink was used for stamping the sentiments. I love this ink as it's metallic looking without having to heat emboss. The only trouble is photographing ... it tends to look a bit blurry in photos, but it does stamp crisp, clear images. :)
Here's a couple more designs ...
And I still have one more piece of this colour combination on yupo for future playing. :)
Working with Alcohol Inks is messy, so it's a great idea to make up several sheets to get the mess over and done with. Then you have lots of beautiful backgrounds or pieces to die-cut when you're ready to create cards. :)
