Hannah here! How are you this lovely February day? Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and I am SO excited! I don’t know why I love this “holiday” so much, we hardly celebrate it at our house, I think it has to do with my love of hearts. 😉
I recently came back from Creativation where I had the opportunity to play with alcohol inks for the first time ever. We were using them for a much different purpose than they are generally used for, however, it did inspire me to purchase a bunch and start playing with them. This really was the basis for my card, I wanted to play with alcohol inks. 😉
So, play I did! I gathered 3 inks in “lava” colors, and some Yupo paper, and went to town having fun!
While that was drying I stamped out my image from Avery Elle, the Lava You set, using Memento Tuxedo Black. Then using the filler stamps from the set I stamped those in with other Distress Inks. I then die cut this image out using the coordinating Lava You die set and colored the ocean water with Copic Markers.
Because I was making a shaker card, when don’t I made a shaker card, I needed a frame, so I created a lovely blend of Distress Inks on a piece of paper using Clarity Stencil Brushes. Next, I die cut my frame out using two of the Distress Edge Rectangle Dies by Kat Scrappiness.
I built my shaker window to this frame with the help of some fun foam, some acetate, and score tape. I adhered my volcano onto the front and added a bit more fun foam behind the volcano for stability, and used score tape to adhere this to my Yupo paper while sneaking in a TON of sequins in there. Like A TON!
Finally, I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set on the inside of my card using some Distress Oxide.
