I promised I would share a couple more cards from the classes I taught at Scrapbooker's Paradise. Both of these were done with alcohol ink on acetate...actually, Judikins Shrink plastic to be exact. It's a nice sturdy medium for this techniqe, especially when using it on a card.
The first is one we actually did in the class. It's a simple 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" card. I used my favorite Cuttlebug Butterfly and the EK Postage Stamp border punch. The sentiment is from a set by Inkadinkadoo called "Greetings".
It's really hard to capture the beauty of the translucent panel, but trust me it's more interesting in real life. It's popped up with micro pop dots, (most are under the butterfly or the sentiment panel) to really take advantage of that quality.The second is also done with the Judikins shrink plastic (not shrunk BTW!) This one didn't make the cut, because you can only get so many cards done in a class, but I like how it turned out so I figured I'd share it with you anyway.
The sentiment is from an fabulous inspirational set by Cloud Nine Design called Happy Birthday, and the flower type image is from Hero Art's set "Scattered Leaves". I added yellow gems to the buds and again the clear panel is popped up on micro pop dots.
These are both really simple designs...perfect for replication in a class. I mean really the fun part is playing with the alcohol inks, not building the cards!
I taught my first Copic class recently. I think it went quite well, and I'll share those cards with you this week too! Until then, thanks for the visit! I love it anytime I hear from you!
