Simon Says Stamp - OH HAPPY DAY Card



Hello Lovelies! Put this Oh Happy Day sentiment on EVERY celebration that you can think of! It's a perfect pairing to stand out against a bold background like this Alcohol Ink experiment.


I actually made this background a while back and have been waiting for the right something to go on top of it... and I think I've found it!



I mention experiment just now and that is truly what I do for most of my alohol ink projects. Apart from deciding generally where on the paper I want the ink to be, I try not to overthink color combos and just try things out. I never quite know how it will turn out but that's part of the fun.


Now let's take a look at today's key supplies.

OH HAPPY DAY CARD - Alcohol Ink and Die-cutting

Card Base: 4 1/4" x 5 1/2




COLOR PALETTE

Today's color combo is all from Tim Holtz's Alcohol Ink lines - Laguna. Boysenberry and Gold Fixative





PICTORIAL GUIDE
  • Use the Mixative generously in spots so that it stands out when you are creating the Alcohol ink background

  • the sentiment is cut twice, layering the white cardstock on top of the gold and off-setting it slightly



Loop the gold thread around the end of the balloon and secure under the card front with tape


Pop-up the gold ballon die-cut for a little dimension and embellish with purple jewels to finish!


 




 

Lovelies, someday I'll do a little video of me playing with alcohol ink. For me, getting the hang of it came with a LOT of practice and several, highly questionable results! LOL So don't stop trying, you'll get the hang of it.


Happy Crafting!
