Life is a Joy

I created my own background with Ruby Red and Charming Chartreuse reinkers.

I dropped the ruby red on Yupo paper sprayed with 91% Isopropyl Alcohol and then sprayed it with air until I liked the look.

I then repeated the same technique with the Charming Chartreuse until I like the blending. Be careful where the colors blend as these are not alcohol ink and will blend together. I didn't want any muddy colors, so I just went slow.

I then cut my tag out of the background and matted it on red cardstock. I then attached the super kit couple from Life is a Joy. I stamped the sentiment directly on the Yupo tag.

The couple was colored with Copics:
Skin: E04, E11, E21, E00 and E000
Brown Hair: E29, E25 and E21
Blond Hair: E18, E15, YR23 and Y21
Green: G28, G24, G21 and YG03
Red: R59, R29 and R22
Shoes: W3 and W1
Chicks: Y17, Y15 and Y11
Bench: E79, E77, E74 and E71

  1. Super Sweet Kerri! love your background ! vibrant and gorgeous colors! precious image, and cute cute little tag.

    to prevent the inks to over blend... have you tried doing only one color at a time, and letting dry betweenthe layers?

    1. Thank You! :)

      I did let the red dry first, but when the green touched it it reactivated it a little. I wanted a little overlap of color, so I then blew the red back over the green. Once I was done I let it dry for several days and then buffed off a few sticky spots.
