VIDEO | Alcohol Ink Inlay

Hello there, today I have a card and video to share with you using the new Simon Says Stamp Daffodil Stem Die from the Lucky To Know You release which is out today. The die cuts an outline and so it's perfect for the inlay technique and I thought alcohol ink would work well for it.
I started off my card by creating the alcohol inked pieces. I took Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper and added a layer of Isopropyl Alcohol on top using a pipette. I then added drops of Lemonade, Honeycomb and Peach Bellini Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink on top for the daffodil flower head. I moved the alcohol ink around with an air spritzing tool and then added some splatters with a paintbrush. For the leaves, I used Patina, Citrus and Clover Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink.

I then took the Simon Says Stamp Daffodil Stem Die and cut the alcohol inked pieces out, followed by three pieces of white cardstock. I took a panel of white cardstock and placed the Taylored Expressions Rectangle Masking Stencil on top, securing at the back with Post-It Tape. I blended on Tim Holtz Scattered Straw Distress Ink on top and then removed the stencil. The panel was then added to the front of an A2 white card base with tape runner.
I adhered one of the white die cut daffodils (the outline only) on top with Multi Medium Matte Glue. I then took the pieces from the alcohol inked panels (the inside pieces) and added them inside of the daffodil die cut to create the inlay. I then layered up the other two white die cut daffodils on top.
I took the 'Happy Easter' sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Dog & Cat Dress Up Set on to black cardstock with Versamark Ink. I applied White Detail Embossing Powder and then heat set. It was cut in to a strip using the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Labels Dies and then added to the card with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Lucy's Ice Cube Jewels.

Here is a look at how I made the card:
