Valentine’s Day card with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers on Vellum

Happy Early Valentine’s Day! Today I have a subtraction technique with alcohol markers on vellum.  First, I laid down some color on my vellum after cutting it to the size I needed.  Then I used a heart stencil and some q-tips with rubbing alcohol to remove the ink.  This created cute little see-through hearts on the vellum.  As you can see below, I cut a heart-shaped window on the front of my card with Sizzix Framelits heart dies and adhered the colored vellum behind it to create a window card.  The hearts were cute, but I wanted them to stand out more, so I traced them with a Sakura glaze pen and then added some doodles with a Uniball Signo white gel pen.  These last steps are totally optional.  Enjoy the video below the image.  The products I used are listed under the video (I am an Amazon affiliate).
