Hello, friends! This is Design Team member, Sandhya Iyer. I welcome you to check out a set of cards featuring the latest sentiment hot foil plates and dies. After I created a bunch of gorgeous golden foiled sentiments, I was inspired to create a rich alcohol ink background with gold details.

I used gold foil and my Glimmer machine to foil the Hello, thanks for your Kindness and Celebrate Today sentiments on white cardstock. I like to use Hammermill smooth cover stock for the best foiling results. Next, I used coordinating dies to cut out the sentiments and set them aside.

Next, I used alcohol inks from my stash to create my colorful panels. While the alcohol ink brand doesn’t really matter, the gold lines work best only with Pinata Brass. I trimmed glossy photo paper to create my panels. Then I used a tiny fine-tipped bottle filled with 90% Isopropyl alcohol to drop alcohol diagonally across the panel. Next, I added 1-2 drops of alcohol ink and a drop of Brass on the little river of alcohol. Finally, I moved a hair dryer set to low heat gradually across the length of the alcohol pool. I went back and forth to create the ripple effect. For the final panel, I added few drops of alcohol inks on a piece of bubble wrap and spritzed it with isopropyl alcohol. I then gently stamped the pattern on the next panel.

Finally, I attached the alcohol ink art panels to A2 card bases using foam tape. Then I finished off by popping on the foiled sentiments with more foam tape. This brings us to the end of today’s post. Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you have fun crafting today!
