by Therese Calvird

Hi, it's Therese, and I am back with another edition of Take 2 with Therese. I'm sharing how to make 2 beautiful magnolia cards with alcohol ink and dye ink!

Today's post is about creating unique flowers by using different mediums! 

2 Magnolia Cards with Alcohol Ink & Dye InkIt's amazing how a different medium can really change the look of an image.  For both of these cards, I used the beautiful Craft-A-Flower: Magnolia; the large size of this bloom really makes an impact on any card!

2 Ways to Create Beautiful Magnolia Cards

Idea # 1 – Alcohol Ink

I recently made this card HERE for a hop and was requested to share the process. It was simple to create with Alcohol Ink backgrounds made with the Artist Marker Refills.  You can find detailed instructions and tips in the video linked below.

Idea # 2 – Ink Blending

Don't worry if you don't have any Alcohol Inks; I have a second version to share with you.  This time, I added color using Crisp Dye Inks and Altenew's Blending Tools.

Always inspiring, Therese! These backgrounds really give some realism and depth to the craft a flower dies. My favourite is the whiter flower and the white background took it to a new place. Just gorgeous!!

Two very different looks but both are gorgeous. I do like the paler flower on white, but the darker flower is my favorite. The layering really brings the magnolia to life. Thanks for the tutorial and ink techniques.
