A Big Hello

This bright and vibrant card was created using my Salad Spinner technique.
So fun and very easy to do.

To see the short video I did go here:

So, here's what I did to create my card.
  • First I got out my salad inexpensive one found at the Dollar Store and then I cut a piece of Yupo paper.
  • I placed the Yupo into my salad spinner and dropped in some blue Alcohol ink and some Rubbing Alcohol, put the lid on and spun away.
  • I opened the salad spinner and repeated that process using some purple Alcohol ink.
  • I splattered with my white Posca pen and set aside to dry.
  • I die cut the 'HELLO' sentiment from white cardstock and used some Peacock Feathers, Uncharted Mariner and some Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink to add the same colours as the background.  I die cut a piece of vellum to use as the shadow and glued that together with the sentiment. 
  • I glued the panel onto an A2 sized card base and popped the sentiment across the front on an angle.

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

The salad spinner works well to get the AI's to move outwards from the centre of the piece of effective, and love the large 'Hello' with the vellum shadow as the focal image Karen, and such bright and pretty colours and looks great finished with the white spattered ink. x

What an interesting technique to use with alcohol inks. Very different results than what we would normally see and I love each background you made. I think this is going to be a must try for me one of these days. Thanks for joining us at MMM, Johanna DT
