How to Color Deco Foil Clear Designer Toner Sheets Video Tutorial

The Deco Foil Clear Toner Sheets are made of acetate, which is a non-porous surface. Only certain coloring media will work well in this kind of surfaces, and alcohol ink is one of them. Since crafters usually have permanent coloring markers on hand, I used markers to color the backgrounds for this tutorial. Be sure to experiment and try out alcohol inks directly if you have some in your stash!

Tip: Rubbing alcohol is the only one that will all the alcohol markers and/or inks to dry properly. I have tried this technique with regular alcohol in the past with decent results. Nevertheless, regular alcohol will make alcohol inks feel tacky, will take days to dry completely and won’t activate and move the inks as rubbing alcohol does. The way alcohol inks react with rubbing alcohol is what creates all those interesting patterns and that is what you want to get with every background!

The best part of this technique is that it won’t damage your Clear Designer Toner Sheets or the foiled patterns on it. I recommend that you protect the surface you’re going to work on if you don’t want it to get stained with alcohol inks. Your hands may get stained also, but you can avoid that easily with a pair of gloves!

Barn Wall Background & Floral Stamps with Unity Stamp Co.

Happy Monday! Just recently there was an incredible background stamp release over at Unity… I couldn’t help myself and HAD to have the new Barn Wall stamp by Brutus Monroe… It is the kind of stamp that you will use over and over again and that will always look great on cards no matter the season. One of the things that really motivated me to get this one is how great it looked on floral cards the designers were sharing. So yes, I am infatuated with this stamp and I’m not shy about it! LOL. Today I’m combining this background texture with some modern florals from a kit I designed for Unity called Amazing Things.

UnityStamps_GraciellieDesignAmazingThings_BrutusMonroeBarnWall_1

UnityStamps_GraciellieDesignAmazingThings_BrutusMonroeBarnWall_3

Main Supplies used:
Barn Wall Background Stamp
Amazing Things Stamp Kit
Versafine Clair Nocturne Ink
Short Cut Kraft Cardstock
Alabaster Cardstock
Stamp Platform
3D Zots
XL Tape Runner

Video Tutorial

Watch the video tutorial below to check out how easy putting together a card like this is. The background really gives the card so much character, and the bright florals bring the whole design to life. I think you’ll see  your floral stamps in a totally different way now… I know I’ll be framing more sentiments using floral stamps from now on… Just love how they make the sentiment stand out! Click below to watch my process video. Don’t forget to follow me over at YouTube and give this video a big thumbs up!

That’s it for now I hope you enjoyed! I will be sharing more tips on video in the future but I do need to know you are watching these! So leave me a comment over at YouTube and let me know your thoughts! Share with your friends if you can!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Until next time!
