Next, I dyed strips of cheesecloth using Ranger Alcohol Inks. I squired the ink onto a non-stick craft sheet, added a little Ranger Alcohol Blending Solution, and dipped the cheesecloth into the ink moving it around with a wooden skewer. You can add more ink if you don’t feel the color is dark enough. I used rubbing alcohol (as it’s cheaper than the Blending Solution) to wipe off the craft sheet. I repeated the process with other colors.
To create the background I dry-brushed chipboard backed white cardstock with yellow and blue paint. I went from light to dark starting with the lightest yellow and ending with the darkest blue.
I used Gel Matte Medium to glue the image to the background. I cut the dyed strips of cheesecloth into small pieces and used the Gel Matte Medium to clue the pieces to the card.
The yellow sparkly material at the bottom of the card is called “Elements-Earth Textures”. I think it is some kind of dyed dirt and glitter mixture. You can purchase the product at the Glitter Art Institute.
