Alcohol Ink Winter Skies

It is unusual for me to be making Christmas cards in January but the supplies are still handy and I will be happy to see the cards in October! I have a small stash of alcohol ink panels in my pile of possibility so the next few blog posts will feature those backgrounds paired with wintry scenery and Christmas greetings.

I’m sorry I can’t tell you exactly what techniques I used for these panels but it looks like I added blue and green inks to white craft plastic, added a generous amount of isopropyl alcohol then blew the liquids around the panel with a hand held air blower. I love the frilly ribbon look on the sky above.

I chose the wonderful ‘tall trees’ dies from Penny Black and hand cut some snowy hills from white cardstock. The sentiments are once again from Taylored Expression because they are so handy and neat!

      The ‘pile of possibilities’ is actually a shoe box of pretty panels that might come in handy some day. It feels good to be using some, many have been there for too long!

    These AI backgrounds look so pretty and the added white snow slopes and trees work brilliantly over the top Heather, and two great sentiments too. x

    These cards are stunning and bring an energy to the snowy landscape. Wonderful alcohol pieces. So glad you saved them Heather. I have an everyday and a Christmas ‘bit box’ which corresponds to your pile of possibilities. So useful as a starting point sometimes.

    What a fantastic effect! I’d never think to use alcohol ink for a sky but how gorgeous this is! Love those colors!
