My card features a host of products and a fun technique, most importantly the rubbing alcohol and Stampin’ Blends technique. I love the results this technique produces. See this additional blog post for other examples of this.
Rubbing Alcohol and Stampin’ Blends Technique
Here are some basic directions to achieve this cool background.
- Scribble or color with your choice of Stampin’ Blends on a piece of Stampin’ Up!’s vellum.
- Pour some 91 percent Isopropyl Alcohol into a small container.
- Dip a paint brush into the alcohol and drip and/or touch the liquid to the colored markings.
- Watch it do its magic or use a straw or your breath to move the colors around.
- Let it dry.
- Once the vellum is dry, I adhere a piece of Stampin’ Up!’s Adhesive Sheets to the back of the vellum.
- I remove the adhesive backing and attach it to a piece of card stock. The example above shows Basic White.
- For today’s card, I die cut the piece with a layer from the Stitched Rectangle Dies.
- Use the piece any way you like!
Playful Alphabet Halloween Card
I also used a few other products to complete this design:
- Playful Alphabet Dies
- Ombre Specialty Paper (Gorgeous Grape)
- Foam Adhesive Sheets (to make the letters stand out)
- Tasteful Textile 3D Embossing Folder
- Black Glitter Paper
- Frightful Tags Dies
Here’s a quick video to help you understand the process.
