One of a kind Card - Alcohol ink

Hello and happy Saturday! Hope you're enjoying the weekend! 

I'm popping in to share a card with you which I made for Altenew August Inspiration Challenge. Erum is hosting this month and she chose for us one of her amazing projects as inspiration.

I picked the color scheme (Aqua, Green, Brown) from her inspiration card and made this card.


To start off I gold heat embossed the butterflies from Bejeweled stamp set on a glossy cardstock. I then applied the alcohol inks on the butterflies. I mainly used Patina and Limeade and a little bit of Turquoise and Citrus. I added gold Mixative on the body and on dots of the wings. I gold heat embossed and colored two more butterflies on a separate glossy cardstock and fussy cut the wings and body part of them. To create the brown background I dripped rubbing alcohol first and a drop of Hazelnut on the alcohol puddle to lighten the color. I moved the ink and alcohol mix to the direction I wanted by tilting the paper.


The sentiment is from the same set. I die cut a circle from the colored panel. I gold heat embossed the edge of the circle and stamped the sentiment in StazOn black. I adhered gold glitter tape from New Day Card Kit on the left and bottom edge of a kraft cardbase. I trimmed down the front panel slightly and mounted it flat on the cardbase. I then put the circle with the sentiment onto the place using some foam adhesive. The fussy cut butterflies were then added on the butterflies of the front panel. I glued the body directly on the body of the butterfly on the front panel and added some foam adhesive under the wings to create some dimension.
I finished off the card with some gold and clear sequins.




I want to enter this card also into Addicted to Stamps and More #256 : Anything Goes and Simon Says Stamp Work it Wednesday August/September: Favorite Stamps.




Thank you so much for stopping by!
Have a wonderful weekend!

This is fabulous TaeEun and I love the alcohol inks and the background using rubbing alcohol looks so soft and dreamy and goes beautifully with those wonderful butterflies. The gold glitter tape is just perfect down the left hand side and bottom edge too. x
