AAA Cards, HLS CAS, Time Out, Uniko


Hi everyone, I hope you're doing good.

This is an alcohol ink seascape which I've made, inspired by the photo at Time Out and my inspiration was lots of blue and the waves!

Time Out photo inspiration

For my picture, I used Yupo paper and only two alcohol inks - Denim and White, so you can make a picture with only a few inks. The stamped sentiment is from Uniko's Simply Said Birthday set.

Sue, your card is so pretty! Interesting, you achieved a watercolour look with alcohol inks, sounds like a paradox ;) Thank you so much for sharing your card with us at AAA Cards Challenge. - Sweet Kobylkin

Hi Sue how lovely to hear from you and I'm so glad I popped over this card is stunning. I love the effect of the inks with the yupo I've been trying to get my hands on some of it for ages but its a bit tricky here in Greece. This is a real wowzer the effect that only two inks have is amazing a real work of art and should be framed.

Gasp, Sue ... this is stunning ... I can almost taste the salt spray from this awesome seascape ... seems it should be framed and hanging in a gallery ... truly fantastic! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out! Hugs, Anita :)

Tish said...

Incredible card and use of alcohol inks. Can you share with us how you did the waves?
Thanks.

Sue said...

Thank you, Tish. After I was happy with the blue, I put some white ink on a Tim Holtz alcohol ink applicator and dabbed it on where I wanted to have the impression of white waves. Hope this helps.

Beverley said...

My Paper Epiphany said...

Wow this is truly an amazing result with 2 colours ! I'd love to see a video!

Sue said...

Thank you! It's fairly easy to do. I put on layers of blue first and moved it around with blending solution until I was happy and then added the white with an applicator to give the impression of sea foam.
