Birthday shaker card

 Hello!

It seems Summer finally is saying good bye to us. It was a long one this year.
And we are ready for Autumn, aren't we?

Today I've played again with my alcohol inks. It was my first trial to heat emboss an image on clear acetate and color it using alcohol inks.


My actual plan was to color on the front of the acetate. But I thought the image from Altenew I chose for today's card is to small for that technique. So I colored on the back of the acetate after I heat embossed the image in gold. I used my favorite color combo of alcohol inks (Wild Plum, Raspberry) for the flowers and Citrus for the leaves. At first I used the alcohol ink blending pen filled with blending solution. I took some ink with the tip of the pen and colored the image with that. But it left too many strokes of the pen behind. So I decided to drip the ink on the acetate and erase the ink went outside the lines using blending pen, which made the color more vibrant.
I used Misti tool to align the image on the front panel and on the acetate sheet.


For the background I blended Salty Ocean DI and Soft Garden dye ink from The Ton on the card base. 
I chose as my shaker element some gold, green and blue beads mix. 
The sentiment is from Hero Arts. I think I went too far with the sentiment, which I stamped once in orchid and slightly offset gold heat embossed. Maybe a simple black sentiment would have worked better :).

  1. I adore this card when I saw on Instagram I was just amazed. So have to try this mind you last time I tried heat on acetate it warped. Not much success. This is so so pretty.

  2. Gasp! This is absolutely GORGEOUS, TaeEun! I love the effect of your gold embossing and alcohol inks on the acetate, and your shaker beads are so pretty! I think your sentiment turned out beautifully, too...off-set stamping looks amazing with this scripty font! Great job combining challenges :)

  3. This is a superb piece of work TaeEun and the Misti is a great way to line things up perfectly. I don't have one but I can see it is a very useful tool to have. The embossed and inked acetate is extremely pretty over the front of the shaker, and is complemented beautifully by the inked background and little multi coloured beads. x

  8. The colors on your card are amazing, TaeEun. The vibrant raspberry with the soft blue and green just say "look at me". And the gold embossing? What can I say. The card is stunning.

  11. Such a pretty shaker. Think it was a good choice to colour the reverse of the acetate as I find that the alcohol sometimes melts the EP!
    Thanks for sharing with us at ATSM. :)
