Masculine Card, A "Love Life" Card and a Tutorial

Lets Call This Technique "Manipulated"
There will be more cards using this
technique to come.
You can also put a vellum or mesh over these.

The picture below looks terrible!!! I couldn't get
a good photo for some reason. The photos above
look a little more like real life.
For the Background You Will Need:
You will need to know that you will be wasting some ink.
White glossy card stock
Alcohol inks (several colors/lights and darker colors)
StazOn or Memories ink
Very important: non stick craft mat
something to cover your work surface.
A few folded pieces of paper towel
TUTORIAL:
Try to visualize what your scene will look like.
Now realize that it will never come out exactly
like you imagined. LOL
You can do an abstract design or scenery.
I prefer scenery.
Always apply lightest color first, as in most art!
Hold card stock (over some folded paper towel) -
on an angle and apply the first color of your
alcohol inks.
***Touch the edge or corner of card stock on the
paper towel to allow the excess ink to be absorbed.
You want the ink to flow down your card,
while you manipulate where the flow goes,
by tilting your card stock to different angles.
ie: if you are doing a nature setting then you
might want to start with the sky. I would start with
Yellow and manipulate your card so that the yellow
ink only flows where you want it. Then incorporate
your different sky colors. I always use yellows, orange,
reds, purples a few different
blues, and I always use some metallic pearl mixed with
the blues. Then for the middle ground you may
want earth colors. Maybe flat or maybe you might create
some mountains.
For the foreground you might want some hilly areas.
Just use your creative imagination and see
what you come up with.
Stamp your choice of images over this background -
using memories or stazon ink.
Some will turn out better than others.
If one turns out bad then use your spellbinders
to frame the good part of it or just make butterflies out of it. lol
JUST HAVE FUN and
BE FEARLESS WHEN CREATING ART!
Hugs,
Dorothy
P.S. one day I might learn how to make a video and upload it.
Be patient!
