Valentine

Happy Saturday!!

Meet today's simple card.  I don't make a lot of Valentines but wanted to play with the new sentiment set from Penny Black called Friendship and Love.  I just love the curly font!

I just recently got some new alcohol inks and wanted to try them on Yupo paper to see what I could come up with.  Yupo paper is a synthetic paper with a unique surface that many different mediums can be applied to with unusual results everytime.  
I dropped the inks on the Yupo, then placed a piece of plastic wrap over the piece and set aside overnight.  When I removed the wrap, it revealed this gorgeous piece of inked paper.  The rich colours are amazing.  I fussy cut out the heart then placed it over the scored card lines.  I made those by using my Scorbug and my ScorPal.  





Adding my card to these challenges:

Unbelievably beautiful colors with the Pinatas! Just got mine yesterday. Thank you for the reminder about the plastic wrap too! I can't seem to leave these alone.

Rufus said...

Beautiful! Would love to know which colors you used. I've gone through a giant roll of plastic wrap since I started playing with it with my various inks and sprays. Unwrapping them is always a fun surprise!

Diane Jaquay said...

That heart is so pretty!

This is dramatic and gorgeous! I bought two pads of Yupo and haven't tried it yet. Alcohol inks used to be my favorite medium, but I haven't used them for more than a year, I think. I will certainly try this! (I used this technique with ink sprays...but only during the summer when I could dry them quickly in the sun.)

Lisa Lara said...

Jaw on the floor stunning Karen girl.

Debbie Nutt said...

Gunilla/Nilla said...

I love using alcohol inks on Yupo paper! I even have two of my granddaughters hooked on it! This is a technique using the plastic wrap that I haven't heard of. Gotta try it!

Alcohol inks and yupo are a wonderful combination Karen and I love the strong colours you have got with that pattern using cling film and the little added white heart looks so sweet and pretty, and the scored dashes and elegant sentiment in the background work beautifully. A gorgeous card. x
