 Envelopes using Alcohol markers on foil:

Tags using Alcohol markers and stencil,
smooching technique and stippling technique...

Step by step instructions for alcohol markers on foil...(tags I have done as I had lot of inks on my felt which I have used on yupo papers with some more alcohol solution..and later used that for making tags.)..
Step-1: first I took a cardstock in envelope size and covered with aluminium foil tape..if you don't have tape than you can use kitchen foil also.. keep shine part on top..and cover the base of CS with foil.

 Step-2: then using embossing folder run through dream cut machine..so you will get nice embossing effect on foil...
 Step-3: now scribble few choices of alcohol markers on embossed foil surface .( See pic)
 Step-4: now taking alcohol solution on a felt dauber spread the alcohol ink..and cover the whole envelope surface....
 Here you can see so bright, beautiful and shiny base...here if you want to see more of silver you can rub with a rag and remove extra colors from raise parts..so you can see nice colors with silver foil on raise parts.
 Then using same felt which was full of alcohol ink ..and my craft mat was also got covered with alcohol inks from previous technique..so I dropped few drop off alcohol solution and using yupo paper did smooching technique..so this way I have utilized whatever colours on my matt...got such beautiful base...
 Step-5: I made three foil base for envelopes and did Coloring with alcohol markers.

Here you can see all 3 base..and the colour  I have used in each picture.
As I wanted to highlight alcohol foil background.. I used minimal decoration as itself with bright colors they were looking very pretty.
 Used circle diecut at the base with foam tape ,used Little Birdie flowers and chipboard sentiment.
 Here I have used silver cardstock and flowers n chipboard sentiment
 In this tag base is gold cardstock, pink part is from smooching technique....here for that center mandala design or Rangoli design I have used Little birdie stencil.. through which I have trace the design with gold alcohol marker and filled each part with light and dark shade of alcohol markers..used circle stitch die to cut the circle..and used happy diwali stamped sentiment from my Stash..

Tag#2: I have used smooching technique print..on which I did die cutting using dream cut machine.. highlighted with pearls n die cut sentiment
 Tag#3-same way here tag base is from smooching technique and one more white cs tag at the back ... I decorated using white diec butterfly.. highlighted with black pearl drop,wooden star emblishment and Diwali sentiment.
