Beyond the Blue #36 - Alcohol Ink and Vellum Fall

Good morning!  It's Friday and the weekend is almost here!  Do you have plans for a fun fall weekend?  It's actually going to be in the 90's here so we'll probably be staying inside with air conditioning.  LOL 

This week's Beyond the Blue challenge is a little bit different.  We are using alcohol inks and vellum, so I went for a grunge-y fall look.  I picked out four really dark Copic markers (BG07, R59, YR27, YG99) and scribbled them onto some vellum.  Then I filled a mini mister with some rubbing alcohol and lightly sprayed the vellum, allowing the marker colors to blend and run.  After my vellum panels dried, I used one to cut a bunch of leaves and I glued the other one to a white card base.  On the leaves, some of them were left alone and some were put on some white cardstock.  You can see the variations in the colors on the leaves - some are transparent and some have that white backing.  It's so fun to see the different colors.

I hope you pull out your alcohol inks and your vellum and play around with them.  Share your creations with us over on the Beyond the Blue blog.  Have a great weekend!

So how did you get your vellum to NOT curl up? And how did you glue it down? I tried this, and my vellum curled up so tightly it was really hard to flatten it... and once I did, the glue showed through the vellum even though I spread it around with my finger. It was a disaster. It doesn't seem like it was so hard for you. I wonder what I'm doing that's making it not work?
