VIDEO | Creating A Background With Copic Reinkers

Hello there, today I have a card to share using the new Cupid's Heart die from the new Love release from Simon Says Stamp. I wanted to create a window with it and so I thought it would be nice to create an alcohol ink background for it. Instead of using traditional alcohol inks, I thought I would use Copic refills/reinkers.

I started off by creating my background. I took a piece of Lana paper (similar to Yupo) and added over a layer of Alcohol Ink Blending Solution. I like to do this first with Copic reinkers as I think it helps them to flow better. I then added on drops of BV000 and used a spritzing tool to blow the ink around. I then added on BV11 to create some darker areas. Once I was happy with it, I set it aside to dry.
I took a panel of white cardstock and cut the Cupid's Heart die from it. I took the 'happy anniversary' sentiment from the Clearly Besotted Tiny Type set and stamped this on to a strip of black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. I added this to the panel with foam tape.
I applied foam tape to the back of the whole panel and added the background piece to the back. The whole thing was then added to a white A2 card base.
Here is a look at how I made the card:

You cannot see much of the background piece but in real-life, it still looks really nice and just adds that extra detail. Thank you so much for visiting me today. I hope you have a fabulous day and get to check out the new Simon Says Stamp release.
