This month’s theme is alcohol ink techniques. Um…well…this is not my best technique but I tried. I made a card out of the best piece I ended up with. From my experience, vellum works much better than window sheets but that’s the only tip I really have. 🙂 UPDATE: I’ve been informed that a higher percentage would work better, I was using 70%. I will have to try again.
I used the Magenta Madness dark Stampin’ Blend, rubbing alcohol, an old brush, and a can of compressed air to create these. I then added Tombow multipurpose liquid glue (let it dry because it stays sticky) and added Gilded Leaves gold leafing on the glue. I used Tear & Tape to attach the vellum behind the embossed white cardstock and popped it up on dimensionals.
