It's A Party ~ Celebrate - Enjoy Your Day - Easel Alcohol Ink Splatter
Yogi here today with an alcohol ink splatter technique.
They say everything old is new again and that's for sure with this technique - BIG GRIN. I did a bunch of them in 2009, some of which were published in a couple of Just Card magazine in 2010 Here & Here
I'm using two of the newest 2016 dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs "It's A Party" & "Celebrate" (also available on Quietfire Design HERE & HERE)
I'm also using a couple sentiment stamps from Quietfire Design ("Twirl & Enjoy" 3pce set); ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set) .
I scored and folded my mango toned card. Cut using my circle scissor then scored and folded the front panel to create my easel. Card size is 5.25"w x 6.5"H - card closed. Cut another circle from the fuchsia cardstock and adhered to card front.
Created my alcohol splatter background on glossy paper (see pics below) using Ranger's "Butterscotch", "Pool" & "Raspberry". Dripped some of one color onto the paper and immediately blow through a straw to splatter it (you can use a spray dust tool or other aerosol tool). Dropped another color and blew and repeated till satisfied.
Stamped the 2 sizes of a firecracker type stamp (gg designs) using Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed. Used the circle cutter to cut my circle. Adhered to a mango circle. Punched a couple notches in the circle and wrapped some blue twine around it twice. Adhered to card front. Wrapped the twine around two of my fingers several times to create the bow. Adhered using a hot glue tool, and then adhered the round jewel.
Die cut the "It's a Party" (also available on Quietfire Design HERE) from blue textured cardstock and some white cardstock. Adhered the two layers together slightly off set to add contrast. Adhered to outer edge of circle.
On the floor: Stamped the sentiment ("Twirl & Enjoy" 3pce set) using the black and clear embossed.
Stamped the firecrackers using Versamark and embossed with Emerald Creek Hot Stuff "Turquoise Shimmer" embossing powder.
Die cut the "Celebrate" (also available on Quietfire Design HERE) from fuchsia cardstock and white cardstock, adhering the two layers together slightly off set. Scored through the letters to create a fold, adhered to floor as my stopper.
Stamped the "Happy Birthday" several times around the edge of the circle using the black and clear embossed.
