Playing with Yupo Paper + Alcohol Inks

Saturday, March 11, 2017

Hello, Kraftie Friends!!!

Have you tried Yupo papers yet? They are 100% recyclable, waterproof, tree-free synthetic paper...basically plastic that will hold ink!
A few months ago, I got some Yupo paper in my Club Scrap Color Me Happy Kit...and I played with it a little bit, trying to figure out what worked best...

I tried Distress Stains, but I have to retry it...didn't really turned out the way I wanted...
And, of course, I tried alcohol inks!
They work great on Yupo paper, just like they work on glossy paper!

I used yellow and blue + blending solution + white alcohol inks for the panel above.
I die cut it with STAMPlorations die and added a white ribbon before adhering the panel to the card base.
I cut a wreath using Flower Market CTMH Cricut cartridge (you can see it HERE), adhered half on the card and outlined it with green markers. Then, I adhered the other half on.
I cut out some succulents from a printed paper (Club Scrap Succulents Collection), and adhered them on card (the lighter one with foam tape).
Finally, I added some sequins.

I'll be back next week with some panels +, please, check back!

And since there are some challenges for handmade backgrounds, I'm entering the card in the following challenges:

1. Mojo Monday #487 Contest:

2. Simon Says Mon: Make Your Own Background
