Today I chose a card that I truly love and am teaching this weekend in two of my classes. It uses the new Color Solutions alcohol inks that Lynell has just released. To start I used glossy paper and then used a marbling technique with the alcohol inks. The ink colors were Blue velvet, Iceburg and Thistle, I slso used the thinner/ cleaner solution after I got the main color on. As you can see this technique gives you some great background contrasts. The stencil(x7004) also a fairly new release was perfect for this technique. To paste this I used the paste threader(LM2010) it gives a great smooth application for these larger stencils. I used White Glossy Paste to paste with, it takes a while to set, so set it aside and go do something else for a few hours so you don't do what I do and smear your card. Anyway once it was dry I simply layered it onto Lavender Star Dream card stock. I kept looking at it all day to see what embellishments I might want to use, and finally decided it really stood on its own.
This card is so easy to do that I will be using it as one of my own x-mas cards this year.
