Two more techniques using alcohol inks.

 These two tags, on glossy cardstock,
 were swiped through several colours of ink,
 including a gold metallic, and then stamped.

 I love the marbled effect and the way
the metallic shines through.

 These, again on glossy cardstock, used several
 colours of ink, dabbed on with a blending tool. 

Then laying down a stencil and using the tool with
 blending solution to fade out some of the ink.
Again I want to do more with alcohol ink
so I can perfect some of these techniques.


  1. Very cool!! I lvoe playing with my AIs ~ you just never know what you are going to end up with!!

  2. bobbie - It was quite interesting - they didn't exactly do what I planned, but I liked what them did! Want to do more sometime.

  3. I have the inks I think. I got a three pack of ranger inks, and I also got that little applicator that comes with a stack of little white cotton pads. And I got some blending solution. Can you believe it? I haven't used them! By the time I got all that home, I was too exhausted to do anything.

  4. Chris - Don't worry, I got mince back in 2005 and this is the first time I've actually done anything with them!
