Bold Peony Card Step by Step Guide
Use alcohol inks to create bold and vibrant papers ready to use in your die cutting designs.
Step One Select your alcohol ink colours, working with tones. Add a few drops directly to yupo paper, layering so they bleed in to one another.
Bare in mind your die cuts and create enough tonal papers to suit.
Step 2 Once your papers are dry, you can begin die cutting. For the base layer I have used darker tones;Red Pepper and Coral.
Step 3 For the middle layers (top of image) Coral and Valencia. And for the top layer (bottom of image) Valencia and Sunshine Yellow. Carrying a colour through layers links them and provides a tonal blend.
Step 4 I repeated this same process for the leaves, this time using green tones of Pistachio, Patina and Meadow.
Step 5 Next I layered and glued the individual layers to form the flower.
Step 6 And this was repeated for the leaves also.
Step 7 I trimmed the card panel to 5 1/4" by 6 3/4" and added a section of monochrome patterned paper measuring 5 1/4" by 2 3/4" along the bottom. I also added a 1/4" strip of black card as a divider.
The flower I attached using foam pads to lift it from the panel, and arranged and glued the leaves.
Step 8 To finish, I added a black crad die cut sentiment "hugs" which I dipped in black glitter, for a little sparkle, and mounted on foam.
The panel I mounted to a 5 1/2" by 7" top folding card, again using foam pads.
