Yupo Alcohol Ink Card

After seeing the card Lisa over at A Walk Down Memory Lane made with Yupo Alcohol Ink paper, I knew I had to try the stuff out...right away! Here's my first attempt at a Yupo Alcohol ink card.

 This paper is so cool! Yupo translucent alcohol ink paper is actually a plastic paper. Because it's not a traditional paper it reacts differently with alcohol ink. Creating fun backgrounds with Yupo paper and alcohol ink is so simple.  

There are a few different ways you can use these 2 things together. For this background I simply dripped the alcohol ink right from the bottle onto the paper. Give it a minute or so to spread out and travel, then choose another color and drip some more. Keep dripping until your paper has as much coverage and color as you want. 

For a little extra texture, I put some alcohol ink blending solution on a paint brush and flicked it at the paper when I was all done. This added a few "water spots" to the paper. 

I used my We R Memory Keepers Evolution Advanced and the dies that come with the Evolution to create a little spot on the card for my greeting. 

Yupo paper and alcohol ink makes a really simple and stunning background for a Mother's Day card, or any card! Have you tried out this cool paper yet?
