Hi there, It's Wishing Well time at the Craft Barn and the wish was made by
KarenB who said...I'm hopeless with alcohol inks so I'd love some simple and effective ideas about how to use them.
Any kind of 'wet' techniques really - paint, masking, misting - tips, techniques and sample projects.
I covered a whole page of shiny card ( photo paper's good) with Alcohol inks, with an applicator. One end of the paper had silver tones and the other was gold but the colour mix was relatively random. Now I've got a large supply of marble effect paper to use as a background or focal point on cards.
The card was created with the Impression Obsession Cover a page stamp, thin stripes. You may be seeing quite a lot of stripes coming up, I think, I love this stamp, LOL
Here are some more backgrounds that I've been working on, the pink is like a faux check might be good for baby / feminine cards. The green also has some Cosmic Shimmer green gold on it, yum yum :0)
Hope you like and as you can see just by making background papers the possibilities are quite large.
Over at the Craft Barn there's been a whole lot more projects using Alcohol inks some of the projects have been truly amazing.
