Creating backgrounds for cards and other projects using Alcohol Inks and Yupo paper is a fascinating and you never are quite sure what you will create. These four cards are for a follow up card class at Scrapbook Cove for May. The backgrounds were created using Alcohol Inks and blending solution on felt secured to a ruler and dragged across the paper. Another one the ink is dropped across the paper and blending solution helps to create blended stripes. For the happy birthday card, I used an embossing folder for the Yupo paper, applied the ink, blended it, let it dry and then used a light grit sanding block to sand away the ink on the raised areas. I cut a piece diagonally and then added the die cut Happy Birthday to the edge of the paper. The orange card, I dropped on the ink and moved the paper around, and then added more ink. While the ink was sticky tacky, I added rose gold foil for accents. The thank you card I made some stripes, then die cut thanks from the center, added a white rectangle to cover the space and added the thanks to the white paper. Using this medium allows me to create unique backgrounds.
