Introducing Anemone

This month’s Paint-a-Flower is a lovely sprig of Anemone with some fantastic sentiments! Of course, if you subscribe to the monthly Paint-a-Flower, you’re guaranteed to get the set without worrying that it will go out of stock. We’ve also got Artist Marker Set D and Set E refills too! 

 

Beautiful Backgrounds

It’s no secret that I love it when my craft supplies can be used in different ways to make them more versatile. You know, you get more more bang for the buck. Am I right? Reinkers are one of those necessary supplies that not only keeps your ink pads or markers in great working order, but can be used on their own in various ways on their own! 

For my project, I thought I would show off one creative way to use the new reinkers with a beautiful background and the Anemone stamp embossed a few times on the finished panel. It’s a real stunning look that doesn’t take much to accomplish!

Love Altenew? Check out all of my projects that feature this amazing company!

Easy Monochrome Alcohol Ink Backgrounds

Artist Marker reinkers create the most beautiful backgrounds! You can use specialty paper, like Yupo, or you can just use Vellum! I’ll show you how I used vellum along with some of the new reinkers to create a few monochrome blended backgrounds.

Thank You!

Time is precious and I'm truly grateful that you choose to spend a few minutes of your day with me! If you are in love with my projects and would like to see more, please support my business by following me on Instagram, YouTube, and Pinterest.

  1. Thanks for sharing your suggestion of using the reinkers for making alcohol ink backgrounds. I’m going to try that on vellum.

  2. Beautiful background! I love the colour and flowers. The vellum is such a nice touch! And I have a lot more vellum than Yupo paper. Thanks for your tips!

    • Gorgeous alcohol ink backgrounds! Thank you for the tutorial. I don’t know that I’d know when I’m done adding color, but you’ve inspired me to give it a try! Thanks so much for sharing your creative talent!

      • The great thing about this technique is that you can come back and add more color later! So, start off being a little reserved and let the panel dry completely. Before you add any adhesive or cut it or anything, just look at it on top of a white piece of cardstock. If you want to add more color, you can then keep adding more color, or spritz with alcohol, etc. to break up any large dark spots, or just get the colors to flow differently. Have fun with it, and remember it’s just paper!!

  3. beautiful card, Nicole – and thanks for the reminder about alcohol inks – think I’ll have a play with mine today!

  4. Your alcohol background is just right for this floral release. Like how you combined the two in one for this hop. tfs-stay well.

  5. You might have just done what I thought was impossible — interest me in making alcohol ink backgrounds. I thought “too messy,” “too uncontrollable.” But after that video . . . .

  6. Wonderful backgrounds, and on vellum. So beautiful! Great tip about the double sided sticky paper to flatten out the warping.

    Reply
  7. Thank you for the very helpful video! I have not tried the alcohol inks on vellum and now can’t wait to try it!

  8. Nicole, thank you for sharing the video. I do lots of alcohol work but haven’t used vellum. It turns out beautifully. And doesn’t Altenew always have wonderful colors. Will be giving vellum a try.

  9. Thank you so much for the tutorial. I wouldn’t have thought to put velum to paper that way. I am anxious to try that! Beautiful backgrounds!

  10. Beautiful card! Thank you for sharing the video, I never thought to use vellum, but going to give it a try!

  11. Thank you for the tutorial on the vellum using the re inkers. I am wondering what you used to stamp the anemone onto the vellum? Needless to say I have never tried this method.

    Reply
  12. These backgrounds are so pretty. I do enjoy seeing what people do with alcohol inks. Your card is lovely. The sentiment fits it. It is it’s own kind of beautiful. Thanks for the video. I’ve never done this in vellum. I’m going to have to try it.

  13. Amazing cards! Thanks so much for sharing your use of vellum! It was a fascinating video! I must give it a try! Take care! 🙂

  17. Thank you for sharing this beautiful method for using alcohol marker refills. It’s very beautiful and i love the white anemone embossing on top of the vellum inked with alcohol. Great to create a few extra in another color family to have for another lovely background— the blue one looks like seashore to me!

  18. Love, love, love your alchohol ink backgrounds.
    Thanks for sharing the tip about using vellum paper instead of yupo!

  22. I love alcohol inking. Altenew’s reinkers will add so many more colors to choose from. Thanks for the inspiration.

    Reply
    • Yes! I love that Altenew has reinkers! I’m sure you could mix and match them with other alcohol inks and reinkers that you have to create some amazing combinations!

      Reply
  23. Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful!! Love the look of both alcohol ink backgrounds for the vibrancy & watercolour backgrounds for the
    softness. What’s great about them both is you never can tell just what you are going to get. I also love this anemone stamp set as they are such delicate flowers.

    Reply
  24. Love those gorgeous backgrounds & the new stamps look so beautiful against that pink!! Thanks for sharing how you made them!

    Reply
  25. Vellum is such a beautiful accent, love it every time! This is a lovely card you created with these beautiful anemone Altenew flowers! Thanks for showing this technique, I’m still learning not to make mud. Be safe and stay crafty! ♥️

    Reply
    • Aah – yes, trying to “not make mud”! I totally understand!! Less is more for sure! Just take your time and don’t get too much ink, or alcohol in the mix to keep colors from blending too much at once. Also, start off with colors that will work well together, like blues & greens, or blues & reds, or yellow & pink, or just stick to one color family until you get the hang of it. Then, you can get more adventurous!

      Reply
  26. Thanks for the taking the time to make the video – I so enjoy watching others create, an opportunity to learn something new! Also so helpful to see each of the colors at work & how wonderfully they blend – inspiring! And then to put it all together with your card – stunning!

  27. Beautiful card, love those anemones! Thanks for the awesome video tutorial with alcohol re-inkers technique, love the ombré color combos.

  28. You did an impressive card using the vellum background you created using Altenew’s new Pain-A-Flower Anemone Stamp. Your videos are always enjoyable and I always go away learning at least one new think. I find your videos to be informative, presented in an easy to follow format, and paced so the viewer can even take notes – not easy to do. I have done inking on vellum to create a stained glass effect; but I have never seen this technique done on vellum. I am getting out some of my reinkers and Altenew flower stamps and craft away.

    Altenew’s Anemone stamp is so beautiful; cannot wait to order it.

    • Thanks so much, Mary! I’m glad you find my videos helpful! I pride myself on doing the realtime narration so it’s like a little class that’s easy to follow! I’m glad it works for you, too! Thanks for stopping by 😀

  29. Beautiful cards! I made a bunch of alcohol ink backgrounds over the weekend and completely forgot to try it on vellum. Next time. Thanks for sharing.

  30. Love your bold monochromatic look using the new alcohol ink refills. What a great idea! Thanks for the clear video explaining your process. I am totally lovin’ this newest PAF….watching my mailbox anxiously so I can play too!

    Reply
  31. Wow! I love that background! So glad I watched the video! I actually don’t think I’ve seen anyone ink on vellum and it looks awesome. Thanks for the tip on how to get the vellum to flatten out for use on a card! I have tons of vellum and don’t use it that often, but now I have another purpose for it!
