New England Stamper: Playing with Alcohol Inks

February 12, 2010

Playing with Alcohol Inks

There's exciting news at Gingersnaps today - a new Design Team call! It's been six months since the last one - where does the time go? If you're looking to have some creative fun on an easy going and supportive team, then check it out!

Here's a card I made just for fun - that doesn't happen a lot these days! I was playing with alcohol inks and used the Alcohol Ink Press technique from the TJs newsletter (April/May 07). It didn't smoosh as well as this card, so I gave it a quick spritz with some Ranger's Blending Solution and it created this speckled effect.

I love I Brake for Stamps collage image - it's the first time I've used it and I'll definitely be using it again!



  • Stamps: I Brake for Stamps, sentiment from Stampin' Up!
  • Cardstock: Fabriano watercolor cards, acetate, whisper white, basic black
  • Ink: Alcohol inks - Stream & Wild Plum, Black Stazon, blending solution
  • Accessories: flat black pearls
  • Tools: tab punch
Thanks for visiting! Come back to tomorrow for the Gingersnaps Blog Hop....

Thud. Sorry, I just fell on the floor. Truly a beautiful piece of art. I must admit I like I Brake for Stamps too. Did you get a chance to see Thursday's Technique Junkie blog post?

Hi Ali,
I just got my alcohol inks out yesterday for the first time in ages. I had forgotten what fun they were. This is lovely.
