I found my stash of Alcohol Inks recently and pulled them out to play. Alcohol inks are from Ranger and are available in all of the Adirondack colors, including gold and silver.
They work like magic on any non-porous surface, such as glossy card stock, Yupo paper, metal and plastic. You simply drop some different colors on paper and let it pool. Or put drops plus alcohol blending solution on a distress tool or cosmetic wedge and swirl it around on the surface.
The close up shows some of the subtleties you can get by pushing or blowing the ink around and adding the blender fluid. I used black Memento to stamp on top. I used Avery Elle and Memento Luxe as well but they took a VERY long time to dry.
So, if you are in the area (Philadelphia), come to my Summer Porch MeetUp and have some Sangria and playtime! If not, go here to see one of Tim Holtz's videos and try using some alcohol inks. Fun
