Guest Designing at The Foiled Fox - Alcohol ink coloring Video

Hello everyone!!! 

I'm guest designing today on The Foiled Fox blog! The sweet ladies from The Foiled Fox invited me again and  I had the pleasure to play with the new Penny Black stamps they generously sent to me! 

The gorgeous image I used for today's card is called Melody Makers. The large blossom and sweet birds were calling for alcohol inks when I saw them for the first time :)! 

To start off I heat embossed Melody Makers on a Alcohol ink cardstock from Ranger in gold. I then colored the image using Ranger Alcohol inks along with a Y06 Copic Refill. 

I applied the ink directly from the bottle onto the image and tilted the panel to move the ink. For small area I used Micro brush. I once watched Jessica Frost-Ballas using it in one of her videos and started using it too. It is the perfect tool for this purpose!!!
The colors I used are:
  • Flowers: Shell Pink, Snow Cap
  • Leaves: Limeade
  • Birds: Y06, Sunshine Yellow, Valencia, Red Pepper/ Pool, Y06
  • Branch: Hazelnut
  • Background: Aqua, Limeade 
I colored the beaks and legs using brown fine tip Sharpie pen and the eyes using black and white glaze pens.

The sentiment is from Grateful Heart by Penny Black. I stamped it in StazOn black ink on the panel. 
I added some dots with gold and yellow Pico embellisher as stamen of the flowers. 
To finish off I scattered some clear iridescent sequins. 

Next picture shows the gold embossing better! 

I've made a coloring process video. You can see the name of the colors used on the top left corner.
You can watch it in HD on my YouTube channel.

Thank you so much for looking! Hope you enjoyed my card and the video!
Huge Thanks to The Foiled Fox for having me as a guest today!

Have a wonderful day everyone!

Thank you for the fantastic video TaeEun which gives us an insight into how you did this beautiful and bright card. This is a really pretty PB stamp and you have done a wonderful job with it, and you managed to keep the alcohol inks under control to give this lovely loose colouring and the gold embossed lines seem to channel the ink. x
