Alcohol Ink Holiday Cards - Part 2

Yes!!! I am officially in love with this technique. These inks have been in my stash for a long time, but I never really got the hang of using them.

I started these backgrounds using Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper, which I found allowed the ink to move around more easily and for a little longer.

QuickTip: When I ran out of this paper , I used my regular alcohol ink paper, but spritzed the card in Ranger Alcohol Blending Solution before I started applying the various ink colors. This allowed me to replicate the same ease of movement and extra drying time that I felt I got with the Yupo.

I then dug out an ornament and a "Merry" sentiment die from Concord & 9th's October 2017 release and made white and gold diecut focal pieces to finish off the card. My lazy crafting at its finest!!!
