[**IDEAS**]❤️❤️❤️ Make your own background papers with Alcohol Ink (You HAVE to try this! It’s soooo stunning!)

I have a NEW obsession!!! 

It involves alcohol…

… okay, alcohol ink 🙂 And Yupo Paper. 

I was reading an article on Yupo Paper and how to make stunning background papers using alcohol inks…

And once I tried my first one…




This stuff is sooo much fun! Every background turns out a little different but they are so beautiful that all you need is a quick sentiment and —BAM— you’ve got yourself a card! 

Plus, the technique looks complicated but it’s really, really easy… I basically dribble my Ranger inks on the paper, swirl it around a little, then leave it alone. 

Ready to check out all the gorgeous ideas?!?!

Then read on below for my favorite examples of STUNNING background papers made using alcohol inks and Yupo paper!

Another fun way to use Yupo paper… make your own bookmarks!  (SIDE NOTE: I’d add a quote from my favorite book and really make this a keepsake 🙂
