Hi and welcome today to my Blog.
Made with Love
My card today uses the Quite Curvy Bundle, this was such a fun card to create. For this card I have used the Blends in two different ways…to colour the leaves and birds and to create the background.
The leaves and birds were coloured using Blends picking up some of the colour from the background.
For the leaves I used
- Granny Apple Green
- Bermuda Bay
- Shaded Spruce
- Misty Moonlight
For the Birds
- Balmy Blue
- Seaside Spray
- Smoky Slate
- Misty Moonlight
- So Safron
- Flirty Flamingo
The back ground was created also using Blends and Isopropyl Alcohol on Window Sheets.
Colours I used were…
- Granny Apple Green Dark
- Misty Moonlight Dark
I have wanted to do this technique for a bout 6 months and have been unable to find any information on it. This week Zsuzsanna Balazs posted a video on YouTube showing the technique. The video is not in English but by watching carefully you can see what she has done to create this amazing background. Here is the link to her video… HERE
Tips I learnt from the video are…
- Use 99.9% Alcohol – Diggers is 99.9%, used for cleaning hard surfaces..Glasses, computer screens etc. DO NOT USE Isocol Rubbing Alcohol, it’s only 64%. The 99.9% seams to allow the Alcohol ink to become more fluid.
- Use the DARK Blends to get the best effects
- Keep repeating the Ink to Window sheet until you get the look you want and allow it to dry a little between each attempt. Just be aware that what you already have on the window sheet will go fluid again when the alcohol touches it.
- Have a clean white piece of paper close so you can place your window sheet on to see the colour.
- Use the largest Acrylic Stamp Block
- You will need paper towel to clean your block…remove ink from your block by spraying with the alcohol and wipe off.
- Adhere window sheet to your card with Glue Dots, which can be hidden under embellishments. My card above I have a glue dot under the Rhinestone and it is glued under Whisper White overlay.
The Quite Curvy Bundle is part of the Curvy Celebrations that starts on the 3rd November – 4 January.
