I have two different ways to share to create texture with alcohol ink pearls. There are more ways to create texture and I have videos with those techniques, you can find them here and here
Be sure to watch today’s video to see the techniques in action and get tips on how to get the best result.
For the first card I used four colours Alcohol Inks – Pearl – Celestial ( SBC | JGG ) Enchanted ( SBC | JGG ) Intrigue ( SBC | JGG ) & Tranquil( SBC | JGG ). The Alcohol ink pearls are opaque and have a gorgeous pearly shine.
To create texture I used the Sizzix – Tim Holtz 3D Texture Embossing Folder – Botanical ( SBC | CST ) which gives an amazing texture and the Ranger Yupo Paper ( SBC ) can easily handle that. I used Tim Holtz Shadow Script 2 ( SBC | CST ) for all sentiments. I cut them out of Craft Perfect Ultra Smooth Card ( CST | CRF | TNCUK | TNC ) I added a layer of Nuvo Glacier White Embossing Powder ( SBC | CST | TNCUK | TNC ) with the super sticky Nuvo Clear Mark Embossing Pad ( TNCUK | TNC | CRF | CST ) to get a glossy finish.
For the second cards I used Alcohol Inks – Pearl – Enchanted ( SBC | JGG ) Deception ( SBC | JGG ) and Splendor ( SBC | JGG ) I added some Nuvo – Crystal Drops Gloss – Morning Dew ( SBC | CRF | CST | JGG ) these clear drying drops are amazing, I really love because you can use them in many ways, they just look like a water drop, gorgeous.
To create the texture on this card I used the Tim Holtz 3D Embossing Folder – Mechanics ( SBC | CST | CRF ) Sanding the surface gives that little bit extra to make the pattern pop with these bold colours.
This is the easiest and cheapest technique to create texture, for this card I used kitchen paper,. The texture you get depends on the pattern of the kitchen paper. I used the Nuvo – Crystal Drops Gloss – Morning Dew ( SBC | CRF | CST | JGG ) and the Tim Holtz Shadow Script 2 ( SBC | CST ) also on this card to create some dimension.
