Alcohol Inks

52 mixed media cards… 2 week catch up

On catch up again … these are weeks 17 & 18

A true gent…

Bring me sunshine…

For both of these I used printed images to finish off which links them but some different other techniques.

A true gent… I added patterned paper to a piece of mountboard cut to size and then added black gesso to the edges. Whilst it was drying I rubbed some foil on it and it stuck in a few places.

Then I created my gent from two images and stuck him down and then added the frame which I had already painted. I found the quote on a printed sheet and felt it worked with the image.

Bring me sunshine… I used a piece of glossy cardstock I had coloured with alcohol inks in bright sunshine colours. Then I added the image of the girl in the vintage bathing suit, and the strip with the sentiment on.

After adhering them I outlined with a fine nib red sharpie and then added it to the card base which I had added black gesso to already.

Love these fun and different ways of creating the cards.

Happy crafting!
