Using Alcohol Ink Scraps with Papertrey Yellow Sunshine Die

Good Morning and Hello!  I\’ve been wanting to make a card with the scraps leftover from my alcohol ink projects and I thought Yellow Sunshine by Papertrey Ink  would be perfect!

I selected scraps of my favorite summertime hues and die cut a bunch.  I also die-cut a coordinating sentiment and  then worked on my layout.  I cut a negative die for another card and used that as my template to place all the little tear drops.  

This card was a lot of fun to make and I like that I was able to upcycle  some beautiful scraps.

Ombre with Alcohol Inks

I have been somewhat obsessed with alcohol inks for the last month or so.  I used the \”side to side\” method where I put blending solution on yupo paper and then added three lines of alcohol ink  and tilted side to side until the colors were blended.  Lots of fun and very quick. You want to blend quickly so that the colors flow into one another.

I set the yupo paper aside to dry and then die cut using Papertrey\’s Yellow Sunshine.  I added a quick sentiment and the card was done.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
