Splitcoast Tutorial: Drunken Acrylic Reveal

This week's tutorial over on Splitcoast is a very fun layered painting technique - it's done using acrylic paint and rubbing alcohol, hence the name... Drunken Alcohol Reveal.

Here's the card I made - all the dies I used are from Impression Obsession. I covered up a lot of the background, but here's a quick picture I took before I assembled the card:

I loved the camouflage effect I ended up with - I actually used ColoriQue, which I shared about last week - it's an ink and resin based product with some similar properties to acrylic paint, and I was so happy to see it react with alcohol too! Even though the colors were diluted, they still remained vibrant and reactive.

I cut the hills in the foreground in a single pass - you can see how they're positioned in the pre-assembly photo above... on the card, I attached the top and bottom pieces first, just a little closer than the cut, and then popped the center piece on top of them. Just a little time-saving tip!

Impression Obsession stamps and dies I used: Deer Trio die set, Rabbit die set, Square Tree Window die, Hill Landscape Layers die set, Serene Scene clear stamp set

Hope you'll give this fun background a try!
Thanks for stopping by!
