Default Alcohol Ink Techniques

Alcohol Inks are so versatile and there are tons of ways to use them in stamping! Please feel free to jump right in, and show us what you are doing with alcohol inks. We love learning over here!

For this background, you will need glossy cardstock, alcohol ink, silver mixative (optional) and blending solution.

Squirt blending solution on a craft sheet.
Drop 2 colors of alcohol inks (Stream and Lettuce) on blending solution.
Add silver alcohol ink mixative (shake well before using!).
Press glossy cardstock on craft sheet. Pick up, turn paper, and press again until desired coverage is achieved. (Tip: leave some white space.)
Use as a background, or stamp directly on the prepared background with archival ink.
