Work It Wednesday


I have chosen to take the color green and make my background using Alcohol Inks and Yupo Paper.

I have enjoyed using the Alcohol Inks lately and I saw a video (I can"t remember who, but if I find it I will add it here later) of someone applying foil to them when it is almost dry. I love this technique when I do it correctly. You need to wait until the inks are almost completely dry.

After I created the background I adhered it to a white card base with some strong adhesive and craft fun foam. I then Stamped the "You" on a piece of velum with VersaMark and heat embossed it in black, being careful not to heat it to much so that the velum does not warp. I adhered that to the panel behind the letters and down where the word strip sentiment will be with some Distress Collage Medium Matte. I stamped the sentiment onto a scrap piece of black cardstock with VersaMark ink and heat embossed it in gold. then I adhered it to the rest with some 3M foam tape.To finish it off I added some gold drops with some gold pearl drops.

I created a second one as well using the same steps, just changing the sentiments. This one had a little more blue in the background.

Thanks for visiting and I hope you will give this a try.
