Cheers with Alcohol Ink Water by Channin

Hello all! It’s Channin here with a new video! In today’s video I demonstrate how to create a simple alcohol inked background that mimics the look of water and all with only one color of alcohol ink! I also show you how I foil and copic color this cool cat from the Cheers Stamp Set!

I started with the alcohol inked background. Onto a sheet of Yupo paper, I dropped droplets of Ranger Sailboat Blue Alcohol Ink and then used Alcohol Blending Solution to dilute the ink and create different values. When I had good ink coverage on my Yupo paper I set it aside to dry. Next, I stamped then copic colored the cat from the Cheer Stamp Set. I then applied adhesive onto the sunglasses with a Decofoil Adhesive Pen. I then applied a small strip of Iridescent Decofoil over the sunglasses and then die cut the cat out with the matching die. Next, I heat set the foil by running the image through my laminator.

I then cut three 1.75” x 3” rectangles of white cardstock and then stamped the sentiment from the Cheers Stamp Set onto one with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. Next, I adhered all of the rectangles together with the stamped one on top. I finished my card by die cutting the alcohol inked background using the largest die from the A2 Nesting Rectangles 1 Die set, then adhering it and the sentiment to an A2 top-folding card base. Lastly, I adhered the cat with foam tape above the sentiment. 

I hope you enjoyed today’s video and card! Thanks so much for stopping by and see you Thursday with a new video!!
