Hello my dear crafty friends and welcome to my new technical card tutorial.
This time I decided to show you my try of alcohol inks technique with heat embossed over transparency stamping.
It’s pretty easy to make and the result is looking really outstanding.
So here we go!
Step by step tutorial:
- Stamp Inspired by Stamping Magnolias flowers with clear embossing ink over thick embossable transparency. If you are not sure that your transparency can be heat embossed, just try over a small piece. Most of thick transparent materials can be heat embossed and the one I used is just from the general non branded kind. Now heat emboss your stamped image with black embossing powder.
- Die cut or hand cut the piece that you want to use as your entire card background. I used a card sized die, but you can sure hand cut the same piece with your craft knife or trimmer.
- Use three matching colors of alcohol inks and apply them to the back of your transparency. The heat embossed image is on the front of your die cut piece. Add a few drops of alcohol blending solution to get this splattered look of the inks and stop when you are satisfied with the result.
- Arrange your transparency over white cardstock that was cut to the same size.
Make the basic card in the matching color and glue both layers over the card base.
Stamp Inspired by Stamping sentiment from the same Magnolias stamp set with black ink over white cardstock and arrange it over lilac matting (the same color as your basic card).
Try another color combos of alcohol inks with another IBS stamps. Each and every card will become a unique art piece.
