Ranger Alcohol Ink with Yupo Paper
Hello! Welcome back to my blog. I am still trying to figure this out. I have visited so many incredible blogs and I can only hope that mine will become something that people visit for inspiration and ideas.
Although Ranger Ink will be releasing the card-sized Yupo paper shortly, I couldn't wait to play with it. I went to my local Art Supply shop and picked up a pad. I used various pinks and purples of Alcohol Ink and started creating my background. Another trick Tim demonstrated was using a stencil with Blending Solution. I used two stencils and tried to duplicate his results. I clearly need more practice with it, but I am happy with the texture that I was able to achieve.
I took a few pictures of the process of making a few Valentine's Day cards. I started by dabbing various red Alcohol Inks on an ink blending tool with a felt applicator. I pounced the tool on the paper. It was amazing to see the ink blend and react.
I then took the Tim Holtz Scribbles stencil and covered the paper. I then applied a small amount of Blending Solution on with a foam applicator.
Another technique Tim demonstrated was a resist with Archival Ink. On another piece of inked Yupo, I stamped a background stamp with Archival Ink and immediately wiped it off, taking off some of the Alcohol Ink.
I cut this piece up to make a mosaic card front. I arranged the pieces and then used Press and Seal to pick them up and apply adhesive to the back.
Here is my completed card:

Stamp: Simon Says Stamp You
I used the leftover pieces to make this mosaic heart:
Since I couldn't stop playing with the Yupo and Alcohol Inks, I made two more cards. The first card is from the piece using the Scribbles stencil.

Thanks for visiting and being patient with me while I learn how to improve my "newbie" blog!
