Hi! The new Alcohol Pearl Inks ( SBC | SSS | JGG ) are here and today I am putting them into use! I created lots of backgrounds while playing and then I turned them into 6 cards. The new alcohol pearl inks are easy to use and you can do everything you did with the regular ones. But these will dry into a lovely pearlescent finish. Remember you can also mix them with your regular alcohol inks and your blending solution.

I made a bunch of backgrounds using my alcohol pearl inks and you can see the in the video above. For my backgrounds I worked on Yupo as well as on the new Alcohol ink cardstock that comes in matte black, brushed silver and silver sparkle! Here are some close-up photos on the cards I made using these backgrounds
the love card
the flower card
I created 2 backgrounds using my alcohol pearl inks on Alcohol Ink Cardstock – Matte Black( SBC | SSS ). These looked gorgeous and they could easy make a card as they were. But I decided to make something more complicated. So I used the Sizzix Funky Floral 1 set ( SBC | SSS ) to die cut the leaves and flowers.
The sentiment is from the Sizzix – Sentiment Words, Thin( SBC )
the wildflower card
Now this is a stunning card in real life, but as always the shine is so hard to catch on camera. This is an inked background I did using my regular alcohol inks. But instead of Yupo I worked on the new Alcohol Ink Cardstock – Silver Sparkle( SBC | SSS ).
You can work on this background with your alcohol pearl inks too, but you really don’t have to. After all you will get the shine and sparkle from the cardstock, so just go with your good old alcohol inks without the pearl mica in them. This is also a great alternative if you want to go shiny but don’t want to invest into the new pearl inks. Just get a pack of the Silver Sparkle cardstock and use the inks you already have.
the pink window card
This is the panel where I did lots of foiling on top. Love how it looks and a simple die cut word and a sentiment makes a gorgeous card. I used the Ornate Love die set for this. Let the wonderful background do the job for you! Quick and simple!
the square card
And since I had the leftover letters from the previous card I just had to use them on a tiny square card. This is a 4×4 card super quick but adorable. I absolutely love the visual texture I got on those letters!
the hearts window card
Finally for the last card I did another quick design. I used the Windows to my Heart die set to cut out the windows and then you can see through the pearleascent inked background.
