Alcohol Ink Backgrounds for Water Looks

Hello from design team member, Heidi!  I am sharing a couple cards that are part of our By the Water Theme, which is our challenge this month!

My first card was started as an alcohol ink background, which I did on yupo paper. I think I prefer yupo over glossy paper for AI techniques, but they both work wonderfully.   I stamped my fishing father and child stamp over top of the background.  I then stamped, colored and cut out the fish and applied it to the bottom as a title.  The black card scrap was cut to look like a Polaroid frame.  

Supplies: Just for Fun Rubber Stamps Father & Child Fishing stamp, Fishing Title stamp

My second card uses the rest of the sheet of the very same alcohol ink background.  I simply stamped my sailboat over the background, and voila!  A very pretty masculine card!

Stamps:  Worst Day Fishing Sentiment, Sailboat Silhouette stamp.

Hope you will enter the challenge!


  1. Wonderful card! I just got some alcohol inks in a kit and I want to learn how to use them.

  2. These backgrounds are gorgeous!
