While I was in Des Moines with my friends in June, Sheri introduced us to using Alcohol Inks on Yupo paper. I had heard of the paper but had never used it. I experimented with some of the colors she had there. While I was there I purchased this Tattered Lace die and decided to use it in black on the alcohol ink background that I had made. I added the scrolled piece from a Memory Box die. The card base is ivory.
As I mentioned earlier this week, we had our youngest granddaughter here for a couple of days. She left to stay with her other grandmother yesterday afternoon. While she was here we managed play the games Sorry, Uno and Old Maid. We whipped a batch of chocolate chip cookies for Grandpa, went to see "Finding Dori" (so cute) and naturally played at my craft table.
Taryn made a card. SInce I had just received an order with some Yupo paper, I decided to show her what we are doing with alcohol inks. She had a big smile on her face and wanted to give it a try herself. I think she would have used all of my paper if I had let her. I really hope she keeps her interest in doing these things because it is fun to spend time with her doing them.
Below you will see pictures of two sheets that I made while Taryn watched. I let her choose the colors. She thought the one with the blues and greens (yes there is green in the first piece) looked like a peacock so I think I'll try cutting some feathers with it. I may use strips of the other one.....just not sure.
I wish you could see the actual piece. The colors are much more intense and look more like peacock colors. I just could not get a picture of either piece that accurately showed the colors.
Thank you for coming by today!
