Alcohol Ink/Hairspray Technique

You will need glossy cardstock, alcohol inks and hairspray.
I used Garnier Fructis Style. You can see it here:
I don't think aerosol will work. It must be able to puddle on the paper and stay wet for a little while.

1. Spray hairspray on glossy cardstock. Make sure the paper is wet.
2. Dot on one color of alcohol ink. Quickly swirl. (I used my finger.) Then add more colors of alcohol ink, swirling after each color.
3. You can stop here, or spray hairspray over the finished background another time to continue blending and adding more texture.
4. Let dry and use as desired.
