Hey, everybody! I hope you’re having a fantastic week and staying warm! We love our chilly weather and all I can say is brrrrr… it was 7 degrees when we got up this morning! I’m thrilled to be back on the Clear Scraps blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! If you are a regular reader of my blog, you know that I’ve been having lots of fun creating alcohol ink backgrounds. Well I took the alcohol ink one step further and inked this Regular Acrylic Phone Stand! OMGosh, this was fun and so easy – acrylic really takes the inks well! And, as I do with my regular alcohol ink backgrounds (usually on vellum), I pressed gold foil onto the ink when it was just about dry to get some pretty veining.
I started by removing the protective film from one side of both of the phone stand pieces. I dropped Cranberry, Poppyfield, Watermelon, Sunset orange, Honeycomb, Sandal, Peach Bellini, Sunshine Yellow and Lemonade alcohol inks onto the surface of each acrylic piece. I added more ink to different areas and when I was happy with the coverage, I set them aside to dry. When they were almost dry, I pressed gold foil onto multiple areas, leaving small bits of the foil. The veining really pops on these colors. When they were completely dry, I painted the edges of both pieces with gold acrylic paint. When that was dry, I removed the protective film from the back of both pieces and covered them with gold cardstock and assembled the stand. The finishing touch was adding red enamel dots.
Here’s a shot of the back.
And one more angled view… I absolutely love how this turned out! A project that’s both beautiful and practical!
