Alcohol Inks

Are a fantastic medium to use, they work on any shiny surface and come in a whole range of colours, even metallics. I love working with them, and there are some great techniques that can be done using alcohol inks. Over at CBH the challenge is to use alcohol inks in a piece of work. I made these two Skinny's with alcohol inks as the backgrounds. I then stamped a tree in Versamark on top and embossed in white. Finishing with some punched butterflies. The photos do not really do them justice as it is dark and the flash is going off, but it adds a very shimmery effect to the top one! Will try and take some photos during daylight tomorrow.


I will have some other techniques using alochol inks to share soon, as I have some work I have completed for Scrapbook Sisters as part of their design team, but need to share with them first! Keep checking back...
