Hey everyone. Happy Saturday. I’ve made some holiday ornaments with Brea Reese alcohol inks for one of may holiday cards this year. These were so easy to pull together and you can make the ornaments any color or combo of colors you wish. Holiday ornaments with Brea Reese alcohol inks are a perfect way to use up some of those alcohol ink backgrounds you might still have laying around. Let me share with you how I made mine.
First I stared out making a quick background using alcohol inks. I made sure to keep the colors bright and in a “somewhat” rainbow order on my paper. Once everything was dry I splattered on some gold liquid metal alcohol ink and white gouache for some added interest. Next I pulled out an ornament die from my stash and selected the colors from the background paper I wanted to create ornaments with. My alcohol ink paper was large so I’ll get plenty of ornaments out of it. Once I die cut out each ornament I backed each one with silver glitter paper. This gives the center of each ornament some sparkle.
For added weight I layered the alcohol piece with the glitter center onto another die cut ornament from white card stock. This will keep the ornament from being to flimsy. Now it was time to add the topper and ribbon. I die cut the ornament toppers from the same silver glitter paper and adhered them to the ornaments with liquid glue. Next I die cut out the ribbons from white card stock and colored each one with a coordinating Copic marker. I adhered the ribbons to each ornament with liquid glue. Adding fam dots to the back of each ornament will help me to pop them up on my background.
For added interest, I die cut a quilted backdrop from white card stock and slid in a backer piece of rainbow striped design paper behind it. This way to color could peek through each flower. The colors are lined up behind each coordinating ornament. This looks so awesome in person. Adding a sentiment in rainbow colors kept the card cheerful. I will have to say this is one of my favorite holidays cards I have made so far this year. It just screams happiness to me. Here is a link to more Brea Reese alcohol ink projects I have made.
