Need Caffeine! with Ashleigh

May 16, 2020

Hi Roadies!

It’s Ashleigh back on the blog today with another card using the amazing Mug Life set, with a cameo from the now retired Stars Hollow!.

For this card, I first started with a piece of Yupo paper and dropped a few drops of Alcohol Ink onto it. I then added some blending solution and used an air spritzer to push the ink around the paper. I continued adding layers of colour and a little silver mixative until I was happy with the final background. Make sure you let it dry naturally – If you hit it with a heat tool, your paper will melt!

After that, I coloured my super cute stamps with Copic Markers. I then stamped the tiny sentiments over the top, to add a little more interest.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment from Stars Hollow – It goes perfectly with this card!

To finish off the card, adhere the background onto a piece of black cardstock. Foam mount your 3 cups and mat the sentiment on black cardstock. Finally, adhere to your card base.

I hope you liked this tutorial, and give it a go yourself. Alcohol inks are so much fun to play around with, and some cute stamps go perfectly on the front! Remember to use ASHLEIGH10 at the checkout to save 10% off your order.

Til next time!

– Ashleigh
