Alcohol Ink Resin Coasters - Couture Creations

Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post. I made some coasters using the new Clear Casting Resin and Alcohol Inks from Couture Creations



Instructions:

I first warmed the Clear Casting Resin Part A and B in a water bath.  This is necessary if the weather is cold outside or the resin is cold. It brings the resin up to temperature and restore the consistency. The added advantage is that it greatly reduces the amount of bubbles and is good when you pour resin into silicone moulds.

Tip:  Do not get any water into the resin hardener it will turn the mixture cloudy.



For the four coasters I measured equal volume of 65g of the Clear Casting Resin Part A and B.

Tip:  Use gloves when you pour the resin into the cups.


I then poured it into a mixing container and stir it. 

Tip: Stir the resin thoroughly for 3 minutes.  Scrape along the sides and bottom as you stir to ensure the total mixture will catalyse properly and cure as expected.


After I stirred it thoroughly I pour it into the silicone coasters.


I used different Alcohol Inks for the four coasters.

For the first coaster I used the following Alcohol Inks: Snow, Sail Boat, Ice Blue and Daffodil.



The second coaster I used Alcohol Inks: Snow, Shamrock, Citrus and Wine.



I then used Alcohol Inks: Snow, Jade and Mulberry for the third coaster.



Lastly I used Alcohol Inks: Snow, Sail Boat, Ice Blue and Shamrock for the fourth coaster.



The first two coasters I left the alcohol ink to do its magic with the resin.  


The last two coasters I used a skewer and lightly moved the alcohol ink around in the resin.

Tip: You have about 45 minutes of working time before the resin cure.



To finish off I then covered the resin coasters with a box to protect it from dust and let it sit over night.

Tip: In about 24 hours it will be hard to the touch and after 72 hours it will be fully cured. Cure time will be decreased in a warmer room.


After 24 hours I took the resin coasters out of the moulds.  It was hard to touch and I placed it flat onto the surface to fully cure for another 48 hours.

First coaster - Alcohol Inks: Snow, Sail Boat, Ice Blue and Daffodil.



Second coaster - Alcohol Inks: Snow, Shamrock, Citrus and Wine.



Third coaster - Alcohol Inks: Snow, Jade and Mulberry



Fourth coaster - Alcohol Inks: Snow, Sail Boat, Ice Blue and Shamrock

Forever In Our Hearts Layout - Couture Creations

Hi Everyone, Anet here today and welcome to my inspiration post. I made a Scrapbook Layout with the Seaside Girl Collection from Couture Creations


Instructions:

I have used Paper 3 from the Seaside Girl Collection. My background page was textured with texture paste and a stencil.  


Once dried I made layers with Paper 6 from the Seaside Girl Collection and then distressed it.  To create 3D dimension between the layers I used Liquid Scrap Spots.  


You can watch my previous video to learn how to use the Liquid Scrap Spots.  Video Link: https://youtu.be/T-3XPd98zcM.


For some texture with the layers I added some cardboard, Steampunk Dreams Mesh die-cut and muslin cloth.



I die-cut white cardstock with the Seaside Girl Achored, Ships Wheel, Seahorses, Seagulls, Swirling Seashell and Flat Seashell Dies and coloured it.


I then die-cut white cardstock with the Blooming Friendship Branches Die, New Adventures Compass Die, Le Petit Jardin Evening Branch Die and coloured it.


The two titles was created by stamping the Seaside Girl Patterned Paper Sheet 1 with the Cute and Cuddly Sentiment Set and heat emboss it.  



Following on from this I started adding flowers using the C'est La Vie Geraniums Die-cuts




I used the Scoring & Moulding Tool Set with the C'est La Vie Geraniums Die-cuts to create realistic 3D Flowers. You can watch my previous video to learn how to use the Scoring & Moulding Tool Set. Video Link: https://youtu.be/gCb3p35OlOg.


To finish off my layout I added the Seaside Girl Ephemera Die-cuts to my clusters of flowers.
