Desktop Calendars with Adriana

Hi everyone Adriana back here again, today I have had a little play with
the Couture Creations FLURO Alcohol Inks……. soon to be released and they are coming to a store near you in the next few weeks!!!!!!!

There are 10 new FLURO colours!!! check them out here 

Now, I am not one for bright colours, and when I saw these I was a bit hesitant creating with them! Yes, the last time I saw FLURO colours like that was in the 80’s !!!!  Haahaa !! But having played with them and adding the right combination of colours —- OOHH!!!!  AAHHH!!!  they are really vibrant and a lots of fun!!

If you like doodling and bright funky colours – then these are for you!!!!! They look fabulous teamed up with a touch of black or silver….

So I created my backgrounds and then I created two very simple Desk Calendars Cards! So, today I am featuring the New Fluro Alcohol inks and also featuring the Calendar tabs for 2021…. I can’t believe the end of the year is here very soon !!!! and it has been a very different year indeed!!!!

I created the backgrounds of my cards with Synthetic Alcohol Ink Paper…. they are so super easy to create.

These would make a great teacher’s gift or Christmas card for anyone of any age group and by adding a Calendar Tab for 2021 – how perfect would this look on a desk!!!

Using the white Yupo paper trimmed to fit to the black base card stock and using the following colours in this order as well – to achieve a wonderful rainbow effect.

CO727958 Fluro Green
CO727959 Fluro Blue
CO727965 Fluro Purple
CO727953 Fluro Red
CO727954 Fluro Burnt Orange
CO727956 Fluro Orange
CO727951 Fluro Yellow

Start by applying a little of the CO727337 Alcohol Ink solution over the Synthetic Alcohol Ink Paper.

Starting with the yellow first and then the other colours as listed above in that order, from the bottom to the top.

Gently moving the colours around together each other with the fabulous
CO727859 Alcohol ink air blower.

Lovely FLURO rainbow effect – I just love it !!!
The fluro colours are very chalky and when dry have very matte finish, I haven’t seen anything like this before in alcohol inks and I really think they are fabulous!!

Once all the Fluro Alcohol ink colours are around the Yupo paper, leave this to completely dry.

Adhering this rainbow coloured yupo paper on to black card and adding in the centre, a small Calendar tabs for 2021.

Then I stamped some new sentiments, which are perfect for the creative soul!!! Using a permanent black ink pad.

Don’t forget to grab your calendar tabs soon !! Hurry while stocks last !!! – How perfect is this to give to someone for Christmas!! A colourful and creative card that will last for the whole year!!!

I also created another desk calendar card – this time with only two colours of the FLURO alcohol inks

CO727959 Fluro Blue
CO727951 Fluro Yellow

These two colour together will make a hint of green and that’s how the green appears on this Yupo paper. Totally cool effect !!

So thanks for stopping by today.
I hope you are all staying well & safe, have fun playing with the Fluro Alcohol Inks!

 

Cheers Adriana XX
