Happy Thursday!! It's official, the MARCH RELEASE from C.C. Designs is NOW available for purchase, Woo Hoo!! This release is so much fun! There are cute froggies, an adorable gnome, and of course some fabulous characters ready to chow down on some delicious cupcakes!
My card today features all the FROGGIES!! I played around with some alcohol ink and Yupo Paper. What is Yupo Paper you ask? It's a synthetic, tree-free paper that is non-absorbent. It resists buckling with wet media. Because it's non-absorbent, alcohol ink (mixed with some alcohol) spreads across it like water in a stream. If you spritz or add drops of alcohol to the ink on the paper, it causes the ink to disperse or spread. It's pretty cool stuff. The only thing is that you have to let it dry for a while and then seal it (Krylon UV Resistant Clear Spray) so the ink doesn't rub off. It's definitely not something to do for a last minute project, LOL! Check out YouTube for more tips, tricks and inspiration!
I used the above green paper to make my froggies! And then I decided to do an alcohol/yupo background for the water. I used the Banners Accessories Die to cut out the sentiment. The sentiment and the bottom frogs are raised on foam tape.
